Creative Inking Blog Hop: Color Challenge

Welcome to the April Creative Inking Blog Hop!

 This month we were challenged to use the colors: Peek-a-boo Peach, Pear Pizzaz, & Flirty Flamingo together. Of course with this bright challenge my mind when straight to spring flowers. So I pulled out my Flourishing Phrases Bundle and got to work. Here is what I came up with! (And here is where I ask you to pardon the slightly 'off' white pictures- I prefer to use natural light but it has been raining HARD here the last couple days!!)

I'm not really a pink person, so my stash of Flirty Flamingo has up until now remained fairly untouched... but I do really like how this turned out! Such a pretty combo all together.

And- if you follow my blog- you know I'm not much of a fussy cutter. But I really really wanted to get the 3-D flower effect... so look what I did!!

After I had it all assembled out of it's 'paper parts' it just seemed dull still. Like it was missing something. It was at that point I added a little baker's twine (which helped) and bling-d it up with some sprinkles (which totally finished it for me). I especially like the pearls in the middle of the flower- although if you want to mail a card I can't suggest such an effect. :)

No hop along and see the amazing samples the other hoppers have put together for you!

And remember, flutterby again soon!

Pin It!
