Just Add Ink 239

This week at Just Add Ink, there was a colour challenge. Incorporating four colours turned out to be a challenge too!

Here's the result of time spent in my craft room this morning, while avoiding cleaning the oven!

The card base is Early Espresso, then a gold piece and then Very Vanilla, where all the action is. A blossom from the retired SU Eastern Blooms set, stamped in Lost Lagoon, is on a Very Vanilla circle raised up on a larger circle cut from either Early Espresso or gold. Initially, all the circles were Early Espresso but it looked more interesting to have the centre one gold. I played with offsetting the Vanilla circle on the darker bases but the Asian influenced blooms looked better in a symmetrical setting.

I finished the by carefully gluing a small gold bead into the centre of each blossom. Tweezers definitely required.

The sentiment is stamped in Lost Lagoon.
