Colour INKspiration 17

Hello there,
welcome to the Colour INKspiration 17 blog hop. If you are hopping your way around the blog hop, you will have arrived from the lovely Julia Quinn's blog. I'm sure you were inspired by her project! 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 and join in the fun every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. I couldn't resist the bright colours of the inspiration picture this round - so bright and cheerful!

Here what I came up with.

I decided to make the most of all that bright colour and create a field of flowers, then do a variation of the eclipse technique that is very popular at the moment. Because the Happy Birthday die is so detailed, to raise it up, I layered four black die cuts underneath. The flowers do a great job of camouflage so you really need to tilt the card to an angle to see the dimension. I swished all my pink flowers with Wink of Stella and then covered the top layer of the die cut with fine tip glue which dries to a shiny glossy finish.

The challenge runs till September 25th. Hope you can join us! Next up, on the blog hop is Rebecca Scurr with another awesome project. Enjoy!
