I think this entry is the favourite of the ones I've done so far (and given I've only done three, it's not hard for me to choose!). The layout & design is very simple, and quite different to what I had set out to do (you wouldn't believe how much "stuff" I wanted to put on here originally!). Since we don't have Soft Sky markers, to ink up the focal image I first inked the whole thing with my Soft Sky ink pad, and then used a cotton bud (a Q-tip I think my US readers would call it?) to remove the ink from some of the flowers, which I then coloured with my So Saffron marker. I coloured the branches with a Close to Cocoa marker, then huffed on the stamp to bring back the ink and stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
I used Chocolate Chip to mat the focal stamped piece and used Stampin' Dimensionals to layer it over Close to Cocoa DSP on a Soft Sky base card. Add a simple sentiment punched out with the oval punches and some beautiful wide chocolate chip grosgrain and I was done!
I really love this colour combination together, I wouldn't have thought to use Soft Sky and So Saffron together so I might have to use that combination again sometime. Thanks Kristina for another fabulous colour challenge!
