PTI: Color Inspiration Challenge

Hi there! It's Papertrey Ink's 6th Year Anniversary! I missed the sketch challenge yesterday and felt really bad. So I made sure to join in today. I picked color inspiration no. 5 for this challenge, and although I missed yesterday's, I still used a sketch from it anyway. 

Color-inspiration-5  Sketch-4

I loved this color combination as soon as I saw it and so decided to give it a go. Here's what I came up with. I used Fancy Folk Art stamp set. I apologize for the bad photo. I had to take this at night and the lighting was terrible. I really should invest in a good Speedlite. 

I used the coordinating dies for Fancy Folk Art. Then I stamped the individual flowers. There's a strip in the middle of the Fine Linen banner that I actually stamped and colored in. I grouped the flowers in a bunch underneath a gray ribbon and added a few punched twigs.

I stamped the sentiment straight onto the Fine Linen banner, stamped it again in light gray and hand cut it. Then I adhered it over the initial stamped image with some foam tape.

 That's all I have for today. I'll be back again this week with more cards! Thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. That was my favorite color combo as well, I love your card and how you put it all together!

  2. Jean you need to know how totally inspired I always am by your designs! This is so amazing, I look at it and I want to make the identical card. Your bow and the twigs and the colours have such a rustic feel. Gorgeous!

  3. very harmonious! bows are always very beautifully strung!

  4. Wow, you did an amazing job with that color inspiration, it looks so similar! Not only the colors, but you captured the style in your card as well, pinning this one!

  5. This card is breathtaking! The color combo was my favorite choice too and I love what you did with it!! The twigs add just the right amount of rustic charm!

  6. So beautiful! I love the cluster of stamped images/die cuts with the bow, is just gorgeous!

  7. Love how you used the colors and sketch!! Those flowers and banner are wonderful!! I think your pic looks fine...I don't have any natural lighting and use ott lights so for me this is great!!
