Inkspirational #18

I am here with my 'end of week encouragement' card for challenge #18 at Inkspirational. If you haven't played along yet, you still have a few more days. We have this colour combo for you this week:


You know I love purple and mixed with green is a combo that sits well with me but then add peach and I am a bit stumped! But I did find some peach paper in my stash and used this as backing and now I think it really is a funky colour combo. Sometimes it is good when these challenges push you out of your comfort zone!


I went for a small square card and used the SU delicate doilies set. These have been heat embossed with purple ink and clear embossing powder. I have popped one up for a bit of dimension. I decided not to add a sentiment and just stamp off the right hand corners with a peach ink doily.

I have ended up with a card that I really like and know exactly who this is for!

Tammy of Creatively Me is sponsoring us this month and offering a our monthly winner all these fabulous goodies:

  6. This is truly lovely. I've been trying to play with these colours but I'm just not getting the right peach to join the rest of the fruity bunch. You've done a fabby job. Some things are best left to the experts, eh?!
