Color Combos Galore #240 - Boudoir Fantasies

Week 3 of April is up at Color Combos Galore!

Gorgeous!!  I was inspired to make a card using the Stipple Hydrangea image from Stampin' Up! Even though this stamp is old (2001)...it's new to me :)  I stole it from my Sis-n-law, Cathy...and I thought it was perfect for this weeks Story Board.

Supply List:
Stampin' Up! - Cardstock (Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze, Whisper White); Ink (Basic Grey, Orchard Opulence, Mauve Mist, Luscious Lime, Baja Breeze); Stamps (Stipple Hydrangea, Painted Posies); Ribbon (Whisper White Organdy ); 1/2 inch circle punch
Tim Holtz - Embossing Folder
WeRMemoryKeepers - Hardware
Apple Barrel - White Paint
On the Surface - Fiber
Unknown - Button

I used Inspiration Photo #3/Focus on Pattern: Musical Patterns - Music Sheet Embossing Folder
Other Inspiration:
Inspiration Photo #1: hydrangea image stamp (idea: lilacs) , wooden button (idea: wooden tray) ;  Inspiration Photo #2:cardstock frame (idea: frames),  faux patina (idea: distress on frame)

For the Faux Patina on my copper hardware...I just mixed some of the Baja Breeze ink refill from Stampin' Up! with a little bit of white paint, and brushed it on.  When it was almost dry, I took a paper towel and lightly wiped some of the paint back off.
For the lightest purple color...I mixed Orchard Opulence, and Mauve Mist.  I don't have either of those stamp pads, but I do have the markers. So, I brushed some of the ink from both markers onto a little paint tray, mixed them together with a water color marker, and then colored in my hydrangea image.

That's it...I do hope you join us this week! Remember... all April deadlines are the 28th,  and upload your projects by April 21 to be considered for this week's Gallery Fave!

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!
