Pumpkin Wisteria Case

Hi there!

I had fun playing around with a few challenges this afternoon: I combined the Freshly Made Sketch with the Color Throwdown combo, and used this week's CASE Study for my inspiration.

I was inspired by the gorgeous colouring of the flower on the inspiration card, so I pulled out Secret Garden and had a bit of 'colouring therapy'!

I stamped the flowers on watercolour card and coloured with a blender pen and Pumpkin Pie ink, die-cutting with the matching framelits. The leaves are from the hostess set Simply Sketched, stamped on watercolour card and coloured with Pistachio Pudding and Wisteria Wonder ink, then I cut out with my paper snips. The other elements of this that were inspired by the inspiration pic are the embossed dotty panel and the white background stamping.

Here's the card I was inspired by at CASE Study:

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Secret Garden, Simply Sketched
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Pistachio Pudding, Wisteria Wonder, Baked Brown Sugar, White craft, Stazon
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White, watercolour
Accessories: Neutrals candy dots
Tools: Secret Garden framelits

Thanks for stopping by!
