Colour INKspiration #165

Hello and welcome to Colour INKspiration #165.

This months gorgeous inspiration picture was chosen by Jan Clothier. Such a beautiful image of Dahlia's in bloom. They are very special flowers and remind me of bouquets as they always seem to have a Dahlia in them.

I was deawn to create my card using the stunning new Layers of Beauty Bundle which includes stamps, dies and masks to colour the roses and leaves. Making colouring so much fun and I used Blending Brushes to achieve this look. The flowers are perfect and seemingly jump off the page. 

The new Basic Beige ink was used to stamp the floral image. I love this new colour so much and feel it will feature in a lot of my upcoming projects as it is a versatile colour to work with. I then coloured the image uasing the gorgeous the Masks, Blending Brushes, Petal Pink, Peach Pie and Shy Shamrock inks. Before cutting it with the coordiunating die. I also cut out some leaves in Basic White card stock to glue around the coloured image.

I used the pretty new Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder on Basic White card stock to sit behind my bloom. The striped Shy Shamrock sitting behind the Eyelet layer is a piece of the In Colour 6' x 6' Designer Series Paper. I offset each of these layers for a fun look and you get to see more of the beautiful DSP.

I stamped the sentiment in Shy Shamrock on Basic White card stock and die cut it using a label die from the Enduring Beauty Dies. I did move the die to create a smaller version that suited the sentiment better. I cut a length of the Diagonal White Trim just longer than the sentiment label and adhered it to the back of the label before adhering it to the card front using Dimensionals. I secured six of the Peach Pie Shimmer Gems around the bloom and leaves. They are so pretty and a great addition to your stash. 

Many thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will use this colour palette and perhaps join us in this colour challenge on Facebook here!
