Colour INKspiration #57

Hello there,
welcome to the Colour INKspiration 57 blog hop. If you are hopping your way around the blog hop, you will have arrived from Jackie Aitken's awesome blog. If you are starting the hop here but would like to go to the start at the  Colour INKspiration challenge page over on Facebook, just click the link to be redirected and ask to join the group, that way you can load your projects directly to the Facebook group.

Here's the INKspiration picture for this week. This week it's filled with a vibrant burst of colour featuring Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. 

Here what I came up with.

You can probably tell I love a bold hit of vibrant colour. I started by brayering my background, added texture with water and ink splatter, then a layer of white gouache splatter. Next I coloured up my flowers with Stampin Up! blends, adding a snipped "thank you" sentiment from a larger sentiment in the Rooted in Nature stamp set. 
Tip: Don't forget you don't need to use sentiments as they are, you can always use just a few words!

To embellish I added some delicate white glimmer foliage (I really liked that it added a more vertical element). I also added some additional foliage using vellum and a little stamped branch. The black outlines were added to the branch using a fine line marker. 
Tip: Another way to customise your card is to add hand drawn accents. 

Here I used the same fine line marker to add a "doodled" (with the assistance of a ruler) border around the edge of my coloured panel. Lastly, a light coat of Wink of Stella added that all important sparkle!

Hope you can join us and have some fun too! The challenge runs till Monday 24th June so there is plenty of time to join in. Next up, on the blog hop is Kathryn Mangelsdorf with a lovely project. Enjoy!
