Hi there, friends! You all rocked the palette at the ColourQ last week--what a fantastic gallery! Be sure to check it out if you haven't already.
Are you ready for a new color challenge? Take a look at this week's inspiration:
I was happy to have earned enough reward points from Papertrey Ink to qualify for this year's anniversary set, Pretty Peonies. Love the florals, frames, and butterfly in this set and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to ink them up.
I started by stamping the large open flower across the card front in Calypso Coral, then added the solid leaves in Certainly Celery. My only complaint about the two-step stamping of this image is that it was hard to space the flowers just the way I wanted them, but otherwise I think they're really lovely.
I used a Spellbinders oval die to deboss a frame directly on the card base. The decorative frame and butterfly were both stamped and cut out by hand and layered with foam dots.
To ground the design, I added a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock debossed with a diamond pattern and a scalloped strip of Dark Chocolate cardstock.
The Royal Court Design Team really knocked my socks off this week with their creations, so you'll want to visit the blog to take a peek!
Thanks for stopping by today. I truly appreciate the time it takes for you to visit and leave a comment!
Hope you have a fabulous day!
