Inkspirations colour challenge # 5


I have had a lot of fun completing this challenge. When I make cards I like to also stamp up an envelope so that I am not suddenly looking for an envelope and realise that I have already used them all. So my first pic is of the envelope closed....


I have used a crimper for the bottom 3/4 of the envelope after I stamped on it in real red & blue bayou. The top third has been inked over gently with Soft Sky, scalloped cut edge and some real red ribbon....

The whisper white card stock was stamped in real red & blue bayou, before the card stock was crimped. I use textured soft sky card stock for the base of the card, and added blue bayou card, real red ribbon, hodge podge & gingham red ribbon.....


This pic shows the co-ordinating set together. I was so happy with how they turned out.....


Lastly a close up of the envelope open....
So until next time,

Hi Mel, I think your card and envelope look great. I have that stamp set so I might have to try something similar myself.
