It must have been fate that as soon as I finally caved in a bought the last neutral for my collection - Chocolate Chip - it should show up in a scrumptious combination at Colour Inkspiration. It's hard to believe now that I've gone over three years without owning Chocolate Chip but now my neutral universe is complete. :-)
This colour palette really appealed to me and as soon as I saw it, I started thinking Petal Palette, probably because both that suite and this inspiration graphic have such dreamy and romantic feels to them. I played around with the suite but ended up with a further exploration of a card I'd made for The Paper Players earlier in the year. I also drew inspiration from the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
I stamped the outlines of the blooms and bird in Versamark and Chocolate Chip before colouring them with water and ink. I thought I'd used shimmery cardstock but somehow I'd grabbed a piece of Very Vanilla instead! Fortunately, the paper held up to the treatment it got.
