KW Colour Inspiration #31

More fab colours this week for Kristina's challenge, however I did find myself struggling a bit. I think this was largely because I kept getting ideas for Summer Mini stamp sets that I have recieved in pre-order... and I'm not ready to show you those yet! This card was also based on Beate's latest sketch.

The stamping on this card is pretty straight forward, although for the Pumpkin and Sffron flowers I have used a cotton bud to remove the ink from the flower centers before colouring them with Elegant Egglplant. I also used the Pumpkin marker on the Saffron flower, simply colouring over the top with it since Saffron is a paler colour and wouldn't distort the Pumpkin too much.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Spring Solitude
Inks: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads, Elegant Eggplant marker, Pumpkin Pie marker, District Ribbon Originals, Theater Ribbon Originals, dimensionals
Show watched while creating: Aus v NZ test cricket
