My colour combo challenge for you over at In Love With Stamping

Well it's a new month and so a new set of challenges over at In Love With Stamping. It was my turn to propose two of the challenges and this was the colour combo I set:

Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Chocolate Chip with optional Whisper White or Very Vanilla

And this is how I've used them:

Stamp set: Oval All
Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst
Ink: Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, Chocolate Chip
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Taffeta Ribbon: Chocolate Chip
Rub-ons: Hidden Garden Blossoms
Other: Pretties Kit, Rhinestone Brad (Circle Ice)
Non-SU: Scallop and Circle die cuts

Two large scallop circles were die cut from Lovely Lilac and the back layer was scored in a straight line with seven scallops on one side of the scoreline. This seven scallop portion was adhered to the front layer with sticky strip, creating a stand for the card. The large Chocolate Chip rub-on from the Hidden Garden Blossoms was applied to a large circle, die cut from Almost Amethyst. Using the Lilac and Amethyst markers I coloured a small flower from the Pretties Kit and secured it to the centre of the rub-on with a rhinestone brad. Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon was wrapped around the lower portion of the circle. This layer was popped up on dimensionals on the front of the card. Fabulous Friend was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Almost Amethyst and punched with the Large Oval. The flowers were coloured using the blender pen and Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment was popped up on dimensionals on a Scallop Oval punched from Lovely Lilac. Both layers were then popped up on dimensionals on top of the ribbon.

Hope to see your creations with these colours in the gallery soon.

Hi Sara,
This is beautiful! Thanks for the tip on making the round card, your way of making it is so much better than the way I have been making mine!
Have a lovely day.

Very nice colours. You chose very well this combo, and the shape of the card is also very unusual (I mean it in a good way) and elegant. The more I see the Oval all sentiments, the more I like them. They are so versatile.
