I saw Kristina's lastest Colour Inspiration challenge this morning and though wow they are super nice and a bit of a challenge but doubted I'd be able to make a card before the deadline due to missing mojo and general pain with my condition. I had a MUCH NEEDED afternoon nap (Thank you Panadene Forte) and woke up with some ideas on what I wanted to do with the colours.
As mentioned in the previous post my partners Brother and his fiance are expecting there second child in August so I will be a (kinda) aunty again! YAY! I haven't been able to see them, due to my health, since finding out the news and have set plans to go visit next week. I've been planning to make them a card to say congrats on there news because they were reluctant to tell anyone at first because they didn't want to steal my thunder especially with everything going on. So I decided to use the inspiration colours to make the card. Here's the colours
Awwww Pwedddddy! And here's the card I made...
Stamp Set: Bundle of Joy, Congrats (SAB Set)
Cardstock: More Mustard, Old Olive, Watercolour Paper, So Saffron Prints DSP
Ink: More Mustard, Taken with Teal, Old Olive (Stampin' Write Markers)
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Hemp Twine, Mini Glue Dots, Random Button I found (Non SU!)
I'm rather happy with this card. It's a little different to what I usually do but I like it. I am a more mustard convert I must say, It's a great colour to play with and I'll be using it more often than I do at the moment! The giraffe was a bit fiddly to watercolour so make sure you have lots of time (and patience) if you ever plan to watercolour him.
