Just Add Ink have a colour challenge this week. I started with a standard card made from Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then adhered a piece of Kiwi Kiss cardstock that was slightly smaller than the face of the card. I trimmed a piece of Barely Banana cardstock slightly smaller than the Chocolate Chip cardstock and placed to one side. Using Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss Ink, I stamped three large flowers from the Eastern Blooms stampset, one in each colour on textured cream cardstock. I then stamped 3 smaller flowers using Chocolate Chip ink onto a scarp piece of Barely Banana cardstock. I cut the large flowers out with my paper scissors and trimmed each flower to be slightly smaller than other by cutting out a V from one of the petals. Using sticky strip I joined each flower together and rolled the outer petal over the handle of my scissors, to curl them slightly. To finish off the flower I cut out an oval shape from a piece of textured cream cardstock and trimmed as if I was peeling an apple and going around in circles, making a long trail. Starting from one end of the curly strip of cardstock, I slowly wound it up to form the centre of the flower and used sticky strip to hold it together. I then ran the centre of the flower over the Barely Banana ink pad to add texture. I joined the three flowers together using Glue dots and using a glue dot around the base of the centre placed it into the middle of the flower. I placed the flower to one side and punched out the small Chocolate Chip flowers using the Spring Bouquet Punch. I dont have my Little Leaves Die yet, so I cut out to branch leaves similar to the little leaves by hand after drawing it on to Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I adhered the branches to the Barely Banana cardstock. I trimmed one so I could place leaves in the remaining corners of the Barely Banana cardstock. I then adhered the large flower and small flowers to the cardstock and adhered the Barely Banana to the base card and stamped the birthday sentiment from the Sincere Salutation stampset using Chocolate Chip ink.
