Easter Inspiration! Colour INKspiration #199

Hello and Welcome to our Easter Inspired colour challenge!!  

This is a brilliant and creative group of amazing creative people and a super fun challenge for everyone!

These colours are a loooong way out of my comfort zone, but they are so pretty!!!  

So, I went a bit over the top!!  I wanted to do a scrap page, and this photo worked perfectly with these colours!!  So amazing!!  As it turned out, my page ended up featuring stamping only for the greetings which come from the Elegantly Said stamp set.  I heat embossed the greetings with white embossing powder onto Fresh Freesia cardstock and then mounted these onto die cut gold foil. 

 (Originally I heat embossed directly onto the gold foil........ but that doesn't work!!  The process of heat embossing buckled the foil!!)

Most of the imagery comes from the fabulous Pierced Blooms dies. (On special for only $38.40)   Don't all those stitched flowers work perfectly with the dotty lines from the background designer paper!!  This fun paper comes from the hostess Pattern Party paper.  

The papers under the photo come from the Pansy Petals paper and the Subtles designer paper packs. (both currently half price!!)   

Lots more pink in this project than is my usual style and I was very glad of the gold details for the leaves (no green in the challenge !!)  I hope you're inspired to join in the fun with us!!

  1. A gorgeous layout Julia. And the gold leaves work so well. Love the exuberance of your arrangement, and thank you for the tip on not embossing onto gold foil. I have noted that one with thanks! ;-) xx
