Joie de Vivre


Greetings! It is July and time for another Color Challenge over at Inskpirational.  This time we are working with the colors below.  


For my own take on the challenge, the flower image and sentiment, both by Paper Artsy were stamped with Purple StazOn Ink.  The flower was colored in with a Milled Lavender Distress Marker.  The flower stem was inked with Forest Moss Distress Ink. Some lavender lace, a smattering of buttons including two in a periwinkle color were added to the bottom corner.  The seam binding appears quite vivid in the summer sun but in my art room seemed closer to the plum color above.  I hope you will pop over and see the absolutely gorgeous creations submitted by the Design Team and then consider sharing one of your own with us.  Our sponsor for the month of July is A Day for Daisies. One lucky winner will receive either a Gift Card valued at $12 or three Digis.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

Reading your post, I feel there are two parts to a colour challenge - first, get the colours right, second, photograph the colours right!
Even if the photo doesn't quite reflect what you see, your fabulous embellishments look beautiful with the sun on them. Lovely card. Marina
