Welcome back for another bloghop using this fortnight's Colour INKspiration colour combination. I could have seriously made quite a few different projects using this gorgeous set of colours. The inspriation picture with all those gorgeous roses and lace is just so feminine.
I have been trying to find some time to use my new Lots to LOVE thinlits for the wee box- and it's honestly the easiest box to put together. I was delighted with how fast it was to create. I included a little set of 4 notecards- 2 say thanks and 2 are plain, and the baker's twine treatment is a little different too.
I ran the front piece of the box - but not the flap, through the wood planks EF and then lightly sponged some Crumb Cake ink over the panel. I love the crumb cake ribbon and it worked well after I discovered that I have actually run out of lace - not even sure how that happens. The little roses are from Swirly Bird, and I snuck in a bit of Early Espresso wiht the text stamping and the sprig in the bouquet - a bit like the photo.
As a nice little link the mini pink roses are from my garden - it's a Cecile Brunner rose bush and they bloom despite my lack of skill. We had one of these bushes in the home where I grew up as they were the flowers on my parent's wedding cake. They bloomed every year for their wedding anniversary and were a regular feature on cakes for their anniversary and my birthday.
So thankyou for hopping along today, there is such a lot of gorgeous inspiration as you go around the design team. Enjoy it. And don't forget we love to see what you create using the same colours. You have 2 weeks to get a photo of your project up on our Facebook page.
Next on the hop this week is my talented and lovely friend Julia
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
