Colour INKspiration #14

Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration challenge!!  Check out these colours this time!!

Image may contain: one or more people and shoes

They are:  Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky and Night of Navy - and what do you think?  I think they are gorgeous!

I've used the lovely Background Bits Hostess Set which is an awesome set for collage stamping (one of my favourite techniques). 

Background Bits Clear-Mount Stamp Set

 I've also used the lovely Pattern Party Decorative Masks and some stencilling with Smoky Slate to create the brickworks.  Over the top of the bricks I've stamped the script from the stamp set using Soft Sky.  The flowers and greeting are stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

The final touch is some Night of Navy gingham ribbon tied around the card, and then bunched with some Rich Razzleberry Stitched Edge ribbon and 5 strands of white bakers twine.  I've also added some Fine Tip Glue pen to the flower heads and dazzling diamonds glitter into the glue for some bling.  A couple of Night of Navy and Soft Sky enamel shape dots finish off the greeting.

The inside of the card is super sweet too!!

I often forget to do the inside of the card, but gee I love it when I do - the card looks awesome and so well finished  and really special!

Now it's time for you to hop along to see the great project from Jacque, and be sure to hop around and see everyone's awesome combinations of colour.
