Restful colours

This week on Creative craft the challenge is to use 'restful colours' - blue, brown and cream.

I used the sketch for ICS 116:

And the colours are for ColorLab 42: soft suede, crumb cake and baja breeze.

I stamped the PM Clare Curd flowers with memento rich cocoa and coloured with copics aqua blue and frost blue, taking some of the colour out of the larger petals with a blender - this is for iCopic lover 32: translucent colouring. The sentiment stamp is from Hobbycraft.

Unfortunately, the photo makes the base card look more grey than cream - definitely cream irl (light is so poor as it's raining now - typical Bank Holiday weather!).

This is also for:

Stamp something: something sentimental
Dream valley 8: stamp something
Use it Tuesday 8: flowers - with a stamp not previously inked - I haven't used any of this PM set until now (although I bought it a while ago)
Top tip Tuesday 35: use two or more stamps
Nightshift stamping 68: clean & simple with flowers
Sukkersott 126: show us your style - I love stamping and flowers
Clear it out Tuesday: colors: any colouring medium
PaperPlay 21: blossoms and blooms
Inspire me Fridays 8: anything goes
Creative card crew: anything goes
The paper shelter 15: anything goes
Truly scrumptious 57: anything goes
