CI#51 Bouquet of Colour

Welcome back to another round of Colour INKspiration, and what a stunning colour palette we have this week. I hope you feel inspired to get your inks out and play along after you've been around and seen all the gorgeous projects from the design team.
If you've followed me for even a short time you'll know that one of my mantras is that " a girl can never have too many flowers"!- something I'v tried hard to teach both of my this beautiful bouquet could only be interpreted one way for me.

I don't ever consider myself a lover of purple but sometimes when you use it it's amazing how it just lifts a project. These are sunset colours for me. I had fun getting inky with some old tissue paper. I played with water and ink and mixed the colours on my silicone mat before laying the paper on top- a sort of reverse watercolour technique. Once dry I adhered it to some whisper white and then layered up the laser paper on the tissue, holding it conveniently in place with a purple frame - Thankyou Stampin' Up for the rectangle framelits!
My interactive card is a bit like the chocolate sliders which were in vogue a few years ago. And I did see a video by Jennifer McGuire which inspired me too.
I wanted to use the spotted voile ribbon because the bride's sleeves in the photo look so lovely but it didn't slide at all. So it is just an additional bow tied in with the white satin edged ribbon. The colours were so lovely on the front that I didn't add any sentiment.
Here it is a little bit open..
And here is is all the way open...
There's not a lot of room to write a message, although you can write on the back of the card insert. But I think the sentiment really says it all anyway. 

Next on the hop this week is the beautiful Jacque Williams from NZ - she's gone with flowers too this week! I'm so looking forward to seeing what everyone creates this week.

  Don't forget to join in.

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
