Colour INKspiration #64

Hello and welcome to my blog!

It is time for the Colour INKspiration Crew Blog Hop!

This is a beautiful posy of flowers for the inspiration this month.
The colours for this challenge are Highland Heather, Purple Posy and Garden Green.

When the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks appeared in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue I ordered them straight away. I love being able to create background images with masks.  I wanted to make a tropical card with the challenge colours.

I started with a Whisper White base card measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half.

I then used the sponge brayers to create the background image with the Sponge Brayers and Garden Green ink on a 10cm x 14.4cm piece of Whisper White. I used some washing tape to hold the card stock and the mask in place when brayering. I then glued this to the front of the card base.

I stamped two of the floral images from the Floral Essence stamp set in Highland Heather ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I then punched these out. Using the Stampin' Blends I coloured them in with Highland Heather and Purple Posy. Then glued the two flowers together and let then dry.

I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set twice in Garden Green on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then punched it out with the Leaf Punch.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Highland Heather on a piece of Whisper White card stock then punched this out with the Timeless Label Punch.

I glued the sentiment label to the brayered layer. I then glued the leaves to the base layer and glued the flower in place.
