Bright & funky...


I combined this week's Colour Q challenge with the sketch from Inkspirations to create this card:

Pretty bright eh?! The leaves and flower come from the free PTI set I got at CHA in Chicago  I haven't used it in a while but I thought it was perfect for this fun colour challenge. The leaves were stamped with Kiwi Kiss and the flowers in Melon Mambo. The whole panel was embossed with PTI's Linen impression plate. I added some buttons and rhinestones (gotta have a bit of bling!). The sentiment is from another PTI set I picked up at CHA. The two DSP pieces in the background are both retired (I have a huge amount of this that I really need to use up!). The ribbon is Tangerine Tango that my Mum bought be from a previous SU catalogue in Australia.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Four of a Kind, Enjoy the Ride
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Melon Mambo, Taken with Teal
Paper: retired SU DSP, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Taken with Teal
Accessories: Tangerine Tango ribbon, PTI buttons, stickles, Linen impression plate, SU rhinestones, Tangerine Tango marker.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Amy!

I just LOVE this card and I'm so excited because I just managed to find someone who would sell me their spare CHA stamp set! It's just so beautiful!

Love the bright colours on this card. I'm always afraid to go bright, but you've done it perfectly. Gorgeous stamp set. Thanks for playing with the Inkspiration challenge this week.
