Blackberry Mambo Flower

It's time for another color challenge.  This week over at Just Add Ink, the challenge is to use Melon Mambo, Blackberry Bliss, and Smoky Slate.  I don't think I'd have thought to put these together, but I think the combination is striking.

I love combining the chevron embossing folder with the chevron paper (from the Backgrounds DSP stacks).  I stamped a flower from the Petal Potpourri stamp set and then added a center by stamping a new pencil eraser with Melon Mambo ink.  I punched some Smoky Slate leaves with the Bird Builder Punch and punched the flower with the Flower Medallion punch.  I stamped the "thank you" from the Hey You stamp set.  This is a pretty simple card to put together, hope you enjoy!

  1. Lovely use of the challenge colours, and of patterns, Shauna. I agree - I wouldn't have thought to use these colours together, but we're seeing such amazing creations. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. I wouldn't have put these colours together either but everyone's cards look amazing. Your big flower looks amazing with the grey leaves (very modern) and loving all the pink chevron stripes. So very glad you joined us at Just Add Ink this week!
