Just Add Ink #232.....Inspiration!

Whoohoo....It's Friday! And this weekend there is absolutely NO plans, hopefully it stays that way and l can get some playtime in..:0)
Over at Just Add Ink this week, we have a gorgeous inspiration pic provided by Kim. I was delighted to see this one pop up on our challenge list, it has such pretty colours and roses are always a fave with me.
Although it hasn't photographed too well, the Tempting Turquoise cardbase l used was a perfect match for the base, but looks much more blue in my photographs.
I used a combination of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Strawberry Slush for the Stippled Blossoms, in various stamped off strengths. For the leaves l used Pear Pizzazz & Mossy Meadow, again stamping off to create different shades.


As always, the design team have provided some lovely samples for you! Hopefully you will be inspired to play along and share your take on this weeks pretty challenge.

"Thanks for stopping by"
All supplies used are Stampin Up!

  2. Ooooooh Lovely does not do this credit Nikki! The flowers are a beautiful riot of colours and just stunning against the blue background. Hope you get that playtime! xxx

  3. Nikki, this is the most beautiful card ever, the choice of colors against that blue is stunning. This is one of my favorite SU flower sets.
