The Challenge 65

It was very hard to resist the inspiration photo at The Challenge this week since it included vibrant colours, flowers and books! As a librarian and English teacher, who has a lot of bibliophile friends, a challenge with a chance to include birthday books is hard to go by!

The background is softly sponged in So Saffron and Melon Mambo (VERY lightly), then embossed with gold using the flower cluster from Awesomely Artistic. I've added some colour to them using diluted Melon Mambo ink and given some background splatters in Tangelo Twist. 

So, all set to add a book voucher to or to put with a book, come the next birthday of a book-lover in my life.

Card: Basic Black, Whisper White, scraps of Melon Mambo, Tangelo Twist, Very Vanilla
Stamps: SU Awesomely Artistic, PTI Bibliophile
Inks: So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Tuxedo Black, Tangelo Twist, Versamark, Gold Versacolour.
Other: Gold embossing powder, paintbrushes, sponges, PTI Bibliophile dies
