SIP #170 Color Challenge - Gina K Designs Tropical Blooms

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  It's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge and this week we have a color challenge for you.

I cheated a little but don't tell anyone.  I loved the deep purple and wanted to use it in flowers but you have to have some contrast so I used a lighter shade of purple as well!

I finally had a chance to play with the Gina K Designs Tropical Blooms Stamp Set... so many pretty images.  I started out with a stitched panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I did a little light ink smooshing on the background with SU Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I added a few splshes of SU Emerald Envy Ink..  I used those same colors to stamp the leaves from Tropical Blooms.  I added some Concord & 9th greenery die cuts to fill the bouquet in more of ... you guessed it, those same colors.  Since I didn't have cardstock in Soft Sea Foam, I swiped my ink pad across a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and dried it with my heat tool and then die cut my light greenery.  The Tropical Blooms are stamped in Hero Arts purples.... I seriously have no idea what the name of the purple inks are.  I think I got them in one of the My Monthly Hero Kits but the light purple was perfect with the deep purple I thought.  I stamped my "Happy" in the darker ink and used the coordinating Happy Shadow Die to cut it out.  I stamped "Birthday" directly on my card base.  I layered the panel onto a Scalloped Layer of SU Emerald Envy Cardstock and then mounted it all on a 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Top Folding Card Base.  I finished it off with some PPP Sparking Clear Confetti!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
