Inkspirations Colour Challenge #78

I really love the colours for the current Inkspiration challenge. They are soooooo pretty and I just had to create something using them.

I decided to experiment with watercolour paper and the "Awash with Flowers" stamp set — an appropriately named set for this card don't you think? I wet the paper before stamping the solid images and also sprayed them some more with a shimmer spray, which allowed the colour to bleed into the paper. Once dry, I stamped the outline images over the top using Crumb Cake ink. I don't mind the "washy" look of the flowers, I think the softness suits the pretty colours…

Stamps: Awash with Flowers, Bring on the Cake
Very Vanilla, Kraft, Rose Red
Ink: Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake
Other: Water Colour Paper, 3/8" Kraft Taffeta Ribbon
