I’m featuring the Lovely Layer Pansy today. Color Inspiration could mean a couple things in this project.

It could mean inspiring you to try these colors AND/OR it could mean where I get my color inspiration. Today’s inspiration came from googling pansies.

I had found a picture of pansies with the center was a dark purple and the edges were this deep, bright pink. I hoping I achieved that look today.

For colors I used the following from Simon Says Stap:

I used a large blending brush for the leaves and mini blending brushes for the flower and edges.

I paired my flowers with a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzword set. I stamped it in Intense Black ink and cut out with the coordinating die.

I also heat embossing a smaller sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock by stamping in white pigment ink and embossing with Alabaster embossing powder.

I used the Gold Glitter Enamel Stickers to add sparkle to my card.

My panel is then added to a card front created from Fog cardstock.

Love the vibrancy of this flower! Hope you like it!

  2. I love honey bee! Nature is good for inspiration and I think your card did turn out by beautiful. I understand why you trimmed it down but I hated to see you cut that gorgeous flower lol. I wonder if matting it with black would have given it that umpf you were looking for.

  3. Love how you ink blend. Great card!
