Just Add Ink #307....Colour!

JAI #307

It's time to share another fun Just Add Ink  challenge and this week we have some lovely cool colours to play with.
I've been wanting to try one of these fun slider cards for ages and decided this weeks colours would work really well.
I couldn't find any tutorials that worked with our cardstock measurements, so l just played until l had it worked out (have added these below)...Love the final product and you will no doubt be seeing one or two more...:0)
I'm a little addicted to this beautiful flower from the "Birthday Blooms" set and of course l'm a yellow rose nut, so the combination was always going to happen.
I stamped the main image in Basic Grey on watercolour paper and coloured the leaves in Smoky Slate, added a liberal dose of Wink of Stella and it was done.

Base: 2 x 4-1/8" x 5-13/16" (1/4 of an (AU) piece of A4 cardstock.
Measure 3/4" in from all edges and lightly pencil around and cut both sides and the bottom.
Score the flap @ 3/4" & 1-3/4" to create the folds.
Pull Panel: 3" x 5" (White) 3-1/4" x 5-1-1/8" (Dijon)
Front Panels: 2-1/2" x 3-3/8" (Basic Grey) 2-1/4" x 3-1/8" (White)

Don't forget to pop by the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the design team.
