Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #8, A Colour Challenge, Baroque Background


I'm not a truly pink/lilac person and I really struggled with this one, but it wouldn't be a challenge then, would it if we were in our comfort zone. I hadn't even broken the seal on the Orchid Opulence packet and I've had it since I signed up to be a Demonstrator last July! Gosh, has it been a year already?
On to the challenge - the colour combo was to use Kraft, Orchid Opulence, Taken with Teal and Regal Rose and using punches somewhere on the card.

I'd just received a free background stamp from SU - "Baroque" so it had to have it's first airing! I inked it with versamark and stamped on Orchid Opulence card stock, sprinkled with heat and stick powder, zapped it with the heat tool, sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds and set with heat tool again. I then outlined the motif with Orchid Opulence marker and cut out motif, layered and adhered to Regal Rose which was also cut around motif which was then matted on to Taken with Teal. I tucked a piece of Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon before all layers were matted onto a Kraft base card (closest as I could get to Kraft - SU Eu don't stock it) and finished off with a sentiment from Ovals All stamped on Whisper White in Taken with Teal, matted on to Taken with Teal punched large oval and Kraft scalloped oval, raised on dimensionals and adhered to left of card.

Dead simple really - just took a bit of time to cut. I hope you like it.
