CI #06 - Succulent Birthday

 Welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge
Challenge inspiration colours this week are:
  • Night of Navy
  • Mint Macaroon
  • Calypso Coral
  • Gold (the image says foil, but gold of any type)

 I have had my Oh So Succulent bundle close to hand recently as I prepare for a class next weekend, so it was an easy choice for this week's challenge.  I loved the succulent pot that Lou made for CI #02, but wanted mine to be a bit more glamorous so used gold metallic sheet to cut the lid of the Window Box framelit, then used the large floral framelit to give the pretty pattern before cutting it in half.  The night of navy behind the foil really makes it stand out I think.  I carried through the gold theme in the succulents, using Gold Embossing Powder to do the lined stamps.  I also decided the stark white background needed a bit of bling so splattered Gold Wink of Stella across the background. 

One of the things I love about these succulents is that you can really make them any colour you like because in nature they come is such a wide range of colours - although I am not sure I have seen any navy ones before! I do think they add to the balance of the 'pot'.

Time to hop on over and see what Kim has created this week.
