Just Add Ink – Inspiration Challenge 53

31 Jan

Card inspiration challenges always get the grey matter going, and this was a fun combination of colours to use.

Here are the details of supplies used:

Cardstock: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White

DSP: Peach Parfait paper stack

Stamps: Punch Potpourri (Hostess Set), So Happy for You (Sale-A-Bration 2011)

Punch: Boho Blossoms

Big Shot: Little Leaves Sizzlit Die

Embellishments: SU Rhinestones

I loved the yellow of the sunflower in the inspirational JAI picture, and the use of black on my card was inspired by the centre of the sunflower.

My absence of sunflower stamps sent me to the good old faithful Boho Blossoms. The black panel is set up on Stampin’ Dimensionals; the flowers were curled to add a 3d look and the larger rhinestones were coloured with a black Tombow marker.

This shows the inside of the card.

And a little close-up.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my first blog entry. May you find inspiration in all the glorious colours surrounding you today – we can always take a cue from nature!

Cheers!

Jan

    Jan, I love your card. The peach parfait on black is very striking- and the black certainly does tie in with the centre of the yellow flowers. TFS Cheers Donna Zammit

    Wonderful! I love the simple layout with the trail of flowers. Great job with the flowers and boho blossoms punch.
    I also really like the clean uncluttered look of your blog!
