Inkspirations Colour Challenge #13 - Gorjuss Bumble Bee


This week Makeesha has a colour challenge, and here are the scrumptious colours:
As well as my creation below, I also made a boy's birthday card - these colours are great to work with! Here is my card:
I am a big fan of Suzanne Woolcott's Gorjuss Girls stamps, and I received my first bunch in the mail last week - this one is Bumble Bee. I have stamped her in Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and paper-pieced her skirt onto Very Vanilla DSP (from the Candy Lane pack). I coloured her clothes and hair with my markers (Not Quite Navy, Old Olive and Choc Chip) and used my inkpads and blender pens to colour her face and arms in Creamy Caramel and Pink Pirouette. The rest of the recipe is below:

Stamps: Bumble Bee (Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie) (I purchased the EZ-Mount foam online from Paper Forest Designs), Best Wishes & More
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Choc Chip, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock: Old Olive, Choc Chip, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane DSP, Urban Garden DSP
Accessories: Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too felt flowers, olive rhinestone (circle ice pack), Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Choc Chip 5/16" Jumbo brads, paper piercer, mat pack, dimensionals.

I love checking out everyone's gorgeous creations online (sometimes I spend too much time doing that when I should be getting some work done, lol) but due to my browser being outdated, I am unable to leave comments on many people's blogs - thank you to those who leave comments here and I hope to have my computer issues fixed as soon as possible! :)

Have a great day,
