I got a little carried away.....

Evening Everyone,
I told you that I got a little bit carried away with the lovely colour combo at Inkspirational Challenges, so here we are with more vibrant pink, green and black.
Once again I have used one of Jane Gill's solid floral images Ferns JGS274 stamped and embossed using Black Versafine  and clear Embossing powder.
The colours have been added by sponging Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the stamped image, and the ghosting is the result of stamping with a wet but clean stamp onto the background.
The sentiment is also from a Woodware Clear stamp set Mixed Greetings FRCL080.
I have used more of the lovely Magenta MEMOR-212 Spring Tapestry background paper with a little additional stamping on it.
This year we are going to try something a little different in class at Davina's.
How many times do you take a class and then when you get home you can't remember how you achieved the results on your card?
Well now, inspired by the Tag class that I did at SirStampalot last year, which was in turn inspired by a Tim Holtz class that they did at CHA, I will be creating an Information Tag to accompany every class. so over the year they should build up quite a library of techniques.
I have made my tag and written the instructions for everyone so all that's left is to pack bag for class, I'm bound to forget something.

As you can see I have also incorporated the Sketch from the latest challenge at Woodware. I'm hoping that it might inspire them to enter themselves.
I'm too late to enter this card into the Inkspirational Colour Challenge as the deadline has passed so I will just have to wait and see what they come up with for Week 2 which I believe is a Photo Inspired challenge.
I can't wait.

  1. This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, Kim! Thanks for using our colors again--I can't wait to see what you do with our Photo Inkspiration tomorrow! ;)

  2. Ooooh, I love this one too!!! Too bad that you were unable to enter it to our colorchallenge, but as you say; a new challenge is right around the corner :)

  3. This is lovely Kim, those colours look great and work so well with the black embossing. I will have to give this technique a try.

  4. Fabulous card Kim and great use of our colour challenge at Inkspirational. Love how you have stamped and clear embossed the lovely image. Hope to see you at our next challenge. Regards Meighan

  5. I am looking forward to making my Information Tags. Super idea. The colours in these cards are stunning Kim. x

  6. Wow, Kim, this is great! It's lovely to see such bright colours at this time of the year! And what a brilliant idea the 'ghost stamping' technique is, it looks magical!

    love Mags B x

  7. Wow, that is real zingy! The black works really well against the vibrant colours :)

  8. Lovely colour combination, so vibrant. Just one question for you, how did you do the scalloped border around your central image, is it a stamp?

  9. The scalloped border is a Nestie S4-127 Classic Scalloped Squares LG cut out of black glossy card stock.
    Hope this helps.
