Thank you for stopping my to visit my blog. If it’s your first time here, welcome. I was chosen as the winner of the Colour Inkspiration challenge a few weeks back and I want to thank the Colour Inkspirations team for giving me the opportunity to be a Guest Designer this week.

I must say I struggled to get going with this colour palette and had everything – ink pads, Blends, Markets – the works on my desk. Eventually, I settled on a stamp set and worked up from there.

My first thought was to go a more pastel project but as you can see, I went bold. I started off with an ink blended background in Orchid Oasis and Polished Pink.

I chose the Summer Shadows stamp set which I hadn’t use in a while. It’s good to show some love to some older sets amidst all the shiny new products we’ve got!

Using my Stamparatus, I was able to ink up the floral image in different ink colours. Adding shading using a sponge dauber is so easy with the Stamparatus as it lets you repeat the process to achieve a darker colour.

Some flowers and leaves were die cut from Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper using the Summer Shadow dies. I also added a larger die cut flower from Orchid Oasis Cardstock, tying in my brighter background. For the leaves, I blended Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen on Basic White Cardstock and die cut the larger leaves from it. This gave me a softer green to blend with my project.

To break up all the colour I added layered White circles which made the floral image stand out against the bright background.
