Say It In.... Purple and Blue!


It's time for another weekly challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps and this week the colours to use are purple and blue with cream. Now I made mine with white as my neutral and it was too late when I realised it should have been cream instead. I used a new set from AnnaBelle Stamps called Mothers Day Bouquet and I LOVE this set!! Its great for mixing and matching images and for those who love to colour, this set will be perfect! * I have to apologise for my terrible photos - I was rushing to get out the door for work, so I had no time to get my photos clearer - frustrating!*
I used Plum Pudding cardstock for my base and then matted some new blue cardstock (soon to be release at AnnaBelle Stamps)on some white. On the bottom half of my card I also added some Baja Breeze Designer Paper to add some more interest. The vase and roses were stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and then I used my copics to colour them in. The image was die cut into an oval with my nesties and I matted the image on a scallop oval in Plum Pudding card.  I used my slot punch to punch a hole to feed the ribbon through and then distressed all the edges . The sentiment is also from the Mothers Day Bouquet set and it was stamped in Plum Pudding ink. Before assembling, I added some Waterfall Sprinkles and tied a blue button onto my bow.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Plum Pudding ink and then matted this onto some more Baja Breeze designer paper. In either corner, I stamped the rose image, finishing it off with copics.
