Inspired By Colors

So I took a stab at Kristina's Color Inspiration again. This week was soft sky, close to cocoa, chocolate chip, and very vanilla. Such an elegant combo! I have stacks of chipboard and now that I know you can use copics on them, I will be grabbing for them regularly! Copics cover them so quickly and NO mess! Love it! The sentiment is from H&M Stamps Sea Life. This particular chipboard is from BasicGrey. I love the adhesive back! The flower is actually 2 layers of chipboard. The top flower is covered with vanilla and then colored with a copic. A bit of glitter was added using a spica pen. You can't tell from the picture but I added an embossed line above and below the designer paper. It sort of frames it in and adds a little extra.
Recipe:
Stamps: sea life (H&M Stamps)
Paper: chocolate chip, spring break dp, close to cocoa textured, very vanilla
Ink: close to cocoa
Accessories: chipboard (basicgrey), corner punch, bone, copper brad (american crafts), copics, spica pen
