welcome back - it's another week and time for another Inkspirations challenge. This week Keesh posted a truly lovely colour combo and I was really looking to have a play with it. Here's the colour pick.
Having looked forward to working with these colours would you believe I struggled! I changed the layout, I looked at every scrap of light pink DSP I had a hundred times (only a slight exaggeration), fiddled and changed my mind. In the end I decided it was incorporating the chocolate chip that I was struggling with. Finally I found a way and I also settled on a layout - flipping this weeks Sweet Sunday sketch.
Here's the result.
OK the final version ;) started with a Rich Razzleberry base, layered that with Whisper White to lighten the colours, then layered that with some Choc Chip DSP. Having worked out where my butterfly was going to be I could stamp my flourish flight trail. I inked up my leafy flourish in versamark and then choc chip and stamped it then embossed with clear embossing powder. Next having picked some Pretty in Pink dotty DSP I layered the two panels onto Razzleberry. Rounded a few corners and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the long panel. The final piece is the butterfly feature - I stamped some Razzleberry dots onto Pretty in Pink, then punched out a butterfly. To fancy it up I added a wire body and big curly antennaes (I got this idea from a lovely card a special friend of mine made me for my birthday last year - you can see it here), and lastly added a rhinestone brad to bling it up a bit. The butterfly was mounted on dimensionals above a mat of white and Razzleberry circles. The inside was finished off simply to match.
It's not my favourite card of all time but I think it turned out quite nice in the end - and one I hope is suitable for greeting a baby girl to the world which is good as my beautiful little niece arrived this morning:)Welcome to the family baby girl!
