Just Us Girls #420 - Color Week

Dear Ones~

This time it's COLOR WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Angie has chosen Turquoise, Gold and Brown.  As always with color challenges, you are to use ONLY the three chosen colors, as well as any neutrals that you need.  Neutrals are white, ivory, kraft, black, brown or gray.

Here's my card:
 I just got a new stamp set by Concord and 9th called Blooms Fill-In. It's a huge background stamp, with smaller stamps to fill in the colors on the flowers. It comes with a companion die set and that's what I used for the white flower in the focal. I used Antique Linen Oxide Ink for the tan background, and then turqoise, brown and gold inks for the flowers. This is a really fun stamp set, so many possibilities. I used metallic gold card stock as a mat, and stamped the little berries in Delicata Gold Ink.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Turquoise Sea, White and Dark Chocolate Card Stock
Stash Mirror Gold Card Stock
Concord and 9th Bloom Fill-In Stamp Set/Dies
Sizzix Ornate Labels Dies
Waffle Flower Year Round Words Die for Greeting
Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink
GKD Turquoise Sea And Dark Chocolate Ink
Delicata Gold Ink
Stash Ribbon
