Flowers for the Colour challenge

Good morning friends,
Tuesdays are always colourful, especially at The Outlawz, with our  Colour challenge and this week is no exception. The colour pallette and inspirational picture was chosen by my Teamie Teresa with the twist being to use an inking or painting technique.

Our sponsor for the month of May has been Dearie Dolls Digi stamps and the prize is the set of images used by the DT during the month.

For my card this week I decided to go with flowers.


For my inking technique, I inked up an embossing folder with Distress inkpads, inserted the paper and ran it through the cuttlebug. The folder is one I bought while in The Netherlands last year, and has no name to it.
I cut 3 sets of daisies with a Joycrafts die, attached them with a brad.  Added some bling centres to the embossed flowers and coloured the little hearts.
The sentiment is from my stash, cut with a label die and attached with ribbon.

There are some lovely cards made my the members of the Design Team, so pop on over and see what inspires you, then join us with your creation.
I will enter this in a few challenges:
Made Especially For You ...Use 3 of something...3 brads

Will be back soon, in the meantime have fun and take care

Wonderful embossing folder and that was a great idea to use the distress ink to color the folder that really highlights all the beautiful flowers. Love how you added the gems and the 3-D flowers your card turned out just stunning.

Ursula, this is a splendid design. I love your inking technique, especially that you used more than one color ink on your folder. I've done that with one color, but not more. You have inspired me to try something new.
Blessings & hugs,
Teresa
