Growing for You – Inkspirations #68


This week on the Inkspirations Challenge Blog – you are being challenged to use some awesome spring colours:

I was nervous that I’d be drawn to do a baby card and I wanted to try something else so I used a new Summer Mini set, On the Grow. I just love the imagery of this set.

The base is Certainly Celery and I used a Bashful Blue card layer and stamped the tall grass from Inspired by Nature on this piece. Next, I layered down the centre a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock with a tie of Pretty In Pink satin ribbon with a big pink button and some linen thread.

I stamped the image with Jet Black StazOn and watercoloured with coordinating colours on some watercolour paper. I cut the paper out with the Ovals #2 Sizzix Die and then I backed the whole piece with some Certainly Celery designer series paper. I punched it out with the Eyelet border punch and then ran it through the Crimping Tool.

For the sentiment, I thought it’d be fun to make a little diagonal strip so I again used On the Grow and StazOn ink and I added Very Vanilla brads to either end.

So thats it! I really love this card and I hope you enjoy it too. Check out what the rest of the design team came up with this week at Inkspirations:
