CI#32 Spots, Stripes and Straws

Welcome to another Colour INkspiration challenge. What a gorgeous colour palette this week.

I love Pink and Navy- and who can resist gold. I really enjoyed this card. The inspiration pic is really cute too.

I just recently acquired this stamp set  - Touches of Texture - after having it on my wish list for ages. This gorgeous spray of flowers is so delicate. It's really all you need on a card.  I'm so happy the set is carrying over into the next catalogue.
To create this I heat embossed the image in white, then I coloured the flowers with Craft White ink and my blender pen. Once that ink was really dry I used the blender again with Navy Ink to colour the flowers. 
I find Pink Pirouette such a hard colour to use because it's almost too soft. But it is perfect for the texture background behind this flower image. It didn't show up at all on Crumb Cake but I did stamp it on the Pink Pirouette panel on the card base. Tone on Tone always just adds a little something.

The gold foil piece is cut using the Petal paletts thinlits, and the sentiment is from Just Sitting here.
And for the inside I just repeated the navy spray - stamped off.

I hope you feel inspried to play with these gorgeous colours and share your creations with us on our facebook group.  But first continue around the group to get some different ideas with the same colours. Next this week is the super clever Tanya, she has such a lovely style.  
Also a big welcome to Kim Oliver - our newest design team member. Be sure to check out her work too.
I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz


  1. What a fabulous idea to use the white ink underneath the navy - it makes a wonderful difference to the intensity of colour. I love the elegance of your card.

  2. This stamp set has been on my wish list too Liz. I now know I 'need' it! This is such an elegant card. Thanks for enabling me!

  3. I adore the sublte colour you have added to your flower image Liz. The embossed background along with the twine, pearls and gold trim all come together for the tactile element beautifully.

  4. Oh just lovely. The split panel with the ruffled embossing is gorgeous.

  5. Absolutely stunning card, Liz. So many pretty details x

  6. Super pretty Liz, in every detail! Kelly x
