CI#27 - Pretty Posy

Welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge, taking a beautiful image and using the colours within it in our projects.

I love this image, so many beautiful soft and bold colours together in one flower.  We are taking the following colours from this image to work with this week:
  • Powder Pink
  • Pool Party
  • Melon Mambo
  • Island Indigo

I was initially a bit stumped with these colours, and when that happens I get out the relative ink pads and move them around on my desk!  What I quickly realised was that there were two pinks and two blue/greens. Once this revelation had struck me (and now I wonder why that took so long!) I knew I wanted to use them with my Lots of Lavender stamp set. While not really a lavender colour I do think it works well on this card. Sentiment is from Lots of Happy Card Kit. 

I hope you are inspired to join us in the challenge with this lovely colour combo, just use the colours and add a picture of your project to the CI Facebook Page. Don't forget to visit to see the other entries and be inspired by everyone's creativity.

Time to hop on over and see what Rachel has created for this challenge.

Happy Stamping
