Colour Inspiration

I'm happy to be hosting on the challenge blog this week. Not too happy about how gray and drippy and dreary it is here with all the rain. Isn't it almost summer? I thought it might be fun to play with some bright colours to cheer me up, so this is what I did:

I chose to use buttercup, melon, apple, watermelon, and pebble. Since the colours were so bright and cheerful, I chose the flowers from Mod Backgrounds 1 (on sale in April). I randomly inked and stamped a panel of sugar cardstock, edged it with my slate Tombow marker and added it to a pebble card base. A sentiment from Contemporary Greetings was added to some more pebble cardstock and adhered with some foam tape. My ink smudged a little so I die cut a medium butterfly from some pebble scraps, stamped it with the Mod Backgrounds 1 woodgrain block using apple ink, and added it to the sugar panel.

Here is the inspiration photo:

I hope you find time to join us at the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog. You have until Saturday, May 4 at 11:59MST to link up your project.

Until the sun comes out again...

Hugs and Kisses.

CAS on the A|S Challenge Blog

Here's a little inspiration for the current challenge on the blog.
I had an idea to make the chevron paper into more of a herringbone pattern, so I trimmed the paper into strips which were attached to my sugar card base. Next, I added a thin strip of wasabi cardstock. The sentiment is from the April spotlight set "Hand Scripted", and is stamped in wasabi and seattle inks. A few drops of wasabi splash! finishes off the card.

There are still a few days left to link up your creation for our challenge.

Hugs and Kisses.

Supplies Used
cardstock: sugar, wasabi, wasabi chevron
stamps: Hand Scripted
ink: seattle, wasabi, wasabi splash!
