Inkspirational Challenge 47 - Live in the Sunshine

I only came across the Inkspirational blog recently and in order to try and keep the mojo flowing I've joined in with Challenge 47 which was a colour inspiration challenge to use any brown with any yellow. This was quite a challenge for me as they're definitely not my kind of colours!!

I stamped the stamp from the Artistic Outpost set The Outpost on to white card and then embossed it with clear embossing powder before adding distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. I then used an iron to remove the embossing powder.

I used the flower stamp from Artistic Outpost's set Old Grist Mill and stamped it using Versamark ink on to the kraft cardstock background.

Materials used: kraft cardstock, white card, Artistic outpost stamps, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, Ranger Distress inks, twine, beaded string.

This is so beautiful! I love the scene you have created here... the tree is fabulous! I like the uneven alignment of the feature panel and the use of twine and (is that beads?) is wonderful! It is great to have you join us at Inkspirational!

I think you did great stepping out of your comfort zone colorwise, as I think you made a really pretty card using these colors! The white embossed scene looks great against the yellow/brown background.

Such a dynamic use of the image yet at the same time, overall, there is such serenity and gentleness to your card.
So beautiful.
