Ooh, I think I've found a new favourite colour combo!!  This week's challenge at The Color Throwdown is to use these colours together:

I've been for a walk, with the dog and my little man, in the beautiful sunshine, and now have time to sit down and play again!

It is a loooooong time since I've used my Eastern Blooms set; time to give it some love.  I randomly stamped the small flowers, on Whisper White card, using ink in all four of the challenge colours.  They look beautiful together, which I must say came as a pleasant surprise!  I especially love how River Rock and Melon Mambo complement one another.

Here is the finished result, which looks so much better (really crisp) in real life!

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Afterthoughts
Card: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, River Rock textured, Soft Suede
Ink: Melon Mambo, River Rock, Rose Red and Soft Suede stampin' pads, white gel pen
Other: Wide Oval punch, sponge dauber, Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool, Sweet Stitches Designer Button, mini glue dots
