Inkspirations sketch challenge #11

It's been a long while since I participated in an inkspiration challenge, but I've finally found some time to sit down and try it! This is the sketch we were given to work with.

Stamp sets: Echoes of Kindness, Best Yet, Short & Sweet.
CS/paper: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, watercolour paper, Sangria patterned paper (Sei).
Ink: Summer Sun, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke, Versacolour 82 Black.
Other: Clear rhinestone brads, clear embossing powder, aquapainter, 3.5cm circle punch, 3.2cm circle punch, 6cm circle punch, dimensionals.

I love the Sei's Mimosa collection of patterned papers, and I really wanted to use the Sangria print in a card. It's so bright and pretty! You can't really tell from the photo, but it has a bit of glitter on it. However, I think the paper is really busy and doesn't really work for this card. The rhinestone brads didn't really stand out on their own, so I placed pieces of Kiwi Kiss cardstock underneath to make them stand out. The Kiwi Kiss circle ended up looking a bit bare, so I stamped a little heart with Versamark to make a background. Perhaps I should've used a flower instead. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. A very eye catching card!! love how you coloured your main stamped image!

  2. This is a lovely card Pam. The SEI paper is gorgeous, it almost looks handpainted. Your watercolouring is fabulous and is a perfect finish to a beautiful card.
