KW Colour Inspiration #43

Finally I've found some time to take part in Kristina's colour challenge while it's still current! And I just had to use the colours with one of my favourite sets from the retirement list, Touch Of Nature. I've combined two challenges in one for this one too, putting Kristina's colours with Beate's WSC (sketch by Lori). The only real thing of note with this card is I stamped the leaves on the left panel with StazOn before bleaching inside them (well, Exit Mould-ed them!) to remove the blue, then coloured over top with Olive.

Most supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, Confetti White
Stamp sets: Floral, Touch of Nature
Inks: Chocolate Chip, StazOn, VersaMark; Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red also used for watercolouring.
Accessories: Old Olive wide grosgrain, Aged Copper Hodgepodge, aquapainter, bleach
Show watched while creating: Sarah Connor Chronicles

This is gorgeous. I would have thought for sure that was patterned paper! Looks beautiful

Carol, this is absolutely gorgeous! And very clever of you to use the exit-mould to bleach the blue CS...I think I'll be filing that idea for future reference :) I love the butterflies stamped in the background and the single coloured one....I think I just like everything about this one :)

Cool technique. I ordered this set & & the seaside one as I had an inkling they might retire, a good guess! Was great chatting on the phone the other day.
