ILWS colour challenge - take 2

Today is my take 2 of the colour challenge over at In Love With Stamping. Still sticking with the challenge colours of course of: Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Basic Black with optional Whisper White or Very Vanilla.

This time though, I inked up A Beautiful Thing. Can you believe that I've had this stamp set since I started as a demo and I think this may be the first time I've used it. I don't why I've overlooked it for so long but when I started making this card I realised that the 2-step flower matches one of the flower shapes in the Flower Fusion felt flower set so I just had to use those too.

Stamp set: A Beautiful Thing
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
Ink: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Craft Whisper White
Punches: Eyelet Border, Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Satin Ribbon: Old Olive
Taffeta Ribbon: Very Vanilla
Other: Flower Fusion, Black Brads (Vintage collection)

I started with a Very Vanilla A6 card blank and stamped the solid flower randomly in Certainly Celery. Using my stamp-a-ma-jig I then went back over and stamped the flower detail in Old Olive. With Craft Whisper White ink I also stamped the flower detail onto the Flower Fusion pieces and left to dry. I stamped the smaller spiral circle in between the large flowers using Certainly Celery. I punched strips of Old Olive and Certainly Celery with the Eyelet Border punch and wrapped the satin and taffeta ribbons around the layers. The Flower Fusion pieces were secured to the strips with Black Brads and the strips adhered to the card front using sticky strip. Finally the sentiment was stamped in Old Olive, matted and layered using the oval punches and popped up on dimensionals in the centre.

A little break from the ILWS challenges for the next few days. I have my Tart and Tangy class tomorrow (I'll let you know how that goes) and then on Sunday we have the latest Stamp With Us Challenge and *drum roll* the New Product Blog Hop at 10am.

Have a great weekend.
