Purple Birthday Flower


This card is for the Just Add Ink (photo inspiration) and Inkspirational (Angle It) challenges.  Unfortunately I don't seem to have any ink that matches the gorgeous blue from the JAI inspiration photo (but I really need to find some to add to my collection!) so I went with purple shades when stamping this Altenew flower.  I knew I wanted to position it diagonally across the card front but it seemed a little plain so I added the striped paper for a bit of fun and to make a clear diagonal line.

Supplies Used:

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Perfect Plum) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Black & White Stripes 6x6) My Favourite Things
Stamps:  (Flowers from Handpicked Bouquet) Altenew, (Sentiment from Sentimental: Birthday) Winnie & Walter
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Midnight Violet) Altenew
Dies:  (Flag) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic

This is stunning Jen, I love the diagonal effect you’ve created with the lines and your flower posy is so beautifully coloured as always. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

Lovely take on the inspiration Jen, it's such a beautiful flower! (ps sounds like a great 'excuse' to go shopping for more ink lol)
