Inspired By:

Evening folks x
I finally managed to tackle my piece this evening for the PaperArtsy challenge.
As soon as I saw the colour choice of Michelle's first piece this week I knew I wanted to give it a try, It is a selection I would never of thought to put together but it works beautifully.
Although I didn't have 'butternut' I mixed a bit of 'haystack' and 'zesty zing' together and put it over 'south pacific'.


I embossed a bit of metal card and alcohol inked it, I then added a Wendy Vecchi 'blossom bucket' embellies that I coloured with pitt pens to match the flower I had stamped and coloured on the other side.


I used the words from the JOFY09, and the flower from HotPicks1109.
To finish I used a bit of black enamel accents round the metal piece to frame it.
Hope you like my offering, I'll be back again Monday with more crafty offerings x
Till Then...
Stay Inky
