This inspirational piece is from The Playdate Cafe and the challenge is to use the noted colors.

It just so happens that Clearsnap has some amazing inks in these colors, so I was able to create this card.

Using the Crackle Rollagraph Wheel, I created my own background paper by rolling with Sky Ink, then rolling on top with Artichoke Ink, then rolling on top of that with Tangerine Ink. I love making my own backgrounds with these tools because the possibilities are endless!

Using the Tulip stamp, I inked it with Artichoke and Tangerine and lightly spritzed with water for a water color effect. Then I heat set with Pearl Embossing Powder. I then added some Lime Fizz Smooch Glitz to the leaves for a little shimmer.

The sentiment was stamped with Sky Ink and then embossed with Pearl Embossing Powder. I love the effect the embossing powder has with these inks.

Using my Styllus tool with an oval tip, I gently inked around the die cut edges before assembling my card.
