Inkspirations Colour Challenge #17

Gidday, to everyone on Australia Day,
This post is for Makeesha's first Inkspiration Colour Challenge for 2010. It is a fun challenge using one  of Stampin Up's unloved colours, Cameo Coral but I think the key is to get a good balance of colour and it works well.  As you can see I have made a feature of Cameo Coral and I like it.
To colour the flower petals I spritzed the petals with water, dried them slightly and then used a paintbrush and re inkers and painted them with pure colour to obtain the depth of colour. I built my flower adding dimensionals to give it some height and placed the ribbon in between the layers for something different and finished with the crystal brad.
Stamps: Whimsical Words, Sanded BG, Butterfly Prints
Card & Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, So Saffron Stamp Pads and Re Inkers
Embellishments: Crystal Brad and Crystals, Hemp Twine, Pretties Kit
Tools: Paintbrush, Art Palette, Water Spritizing Bottle, Mat Pack & Piercing Tool, Butterfly Punch, Cutter Tool, Needle & Cotton, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug, Curved Rectangles Nestabilities. Mini Glue Dots, Glue

Baby Shower

Hi there,
Happy Australia Day!!
I have had a busy couple of days catching up after visiting family in Perth.  While I was there my youngest daughter had a baby shower and I made a similar card to these for her present.  I forgot to take a photo so I remade the card and changed a number of elements.  Thank's to Crystal Jakiko for the idea, I can't find my notes at the moment so I can link to her blog. 

I made my own template from an A5 piece of card, which is a lot smaller than Crystal's.  I used a couple of ideas from Pat Carr for the Babies head.  I used magnets to hold the card together and changed the positioning of the ribbon and only tied it to the front.
Stamps: Priceless
Card & Paper: Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom, Whisper White, Print Patterns DP, Petals & Paisley DP (R)
Ink: Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink Marker
Embellishments: Organdy Ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots EB Folder, 1 3/8" Punch, 1/2" Punch, Word Window Punch, Cropadile, Heart to Heart Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Martha Stewarts Butterfly Punch, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Martha Stewart Screw Punch, Fine Black Pen, Sponge, Magnets, Computer & Printer
