CI#20 Gorgeous colours for a bouquet.

Welcome to Colour INKspiration for the 20th colour challenge! and what a gorgeous inspiration pic for this weeks colours
We were invited to a beautiful young couple's wedding this week, and the colours and picture just inspired me to make this wedding card. All the invitations and wedding stationery was adorned with lovely watercolour flowers so I wanted to use that theme in the card. Initially I was going to fussy cut pieces and incorporate them, but in the end I only added them to the inside, although I did cut their names and date from the 'save the Date' card and added them to the front.
The front bouquet was made using the babywipe technique with just a few drops of Coral and Cherry inks. I was really surprised and pleased with how lovely they look together.
The blossoms are from the Beautiful bouquet bunch set.

I cut 2 sets of stems - one from Artichoke and one from shimmery White card which I then watercoloured with Artichoke ink. I like the depth and difference it gives with double layers.

The other easy way to get depth and dimension is using the Embossing Folders. I LOVE the dynamic wood planks and have used it on both the Whisper White card base and on the Timber DSP - it looks AMAZING in real life, and just takes the paper to a whole new level.

As I said I did use part of their original invitation on the inside- here's a little peak

And here's the beautiful couple with the watercolour painting by a local artist which we gave them.

 Next on the hop this fortnight is Lou, I wonder what amazingness she'll have for us today?

Don;t forget to share a picture of the projects you are inspired to make using these colours on our Facebook page.

Have a creative week! 

Thanks for looking, and remember

  1. Love all the different ways you've introduced woodgrain on your gorgeous cards Liz.

  2. I love that you've used part of their invite on your gorgeous unique & personalised creation. Nothing more special than the love you've put into their card! Kelly x

  3. What a gorgeous wedding card and gift. Something they will treasure.

  4. Brilliant idea using the pinewood planks on the wood DSP. I would love to case that idea! This is a truly gorgeous card and it all works so well with the gift and invitation. Clever clever you.
