Mediterranean Moments Meets Eastern Palace - #GDP085

Welcome back to my blog crafty ones 😊

Today's blog is all about the retiring incolours as they are the challenge for #GDP085 
The Global Design Team have decided to say a last goodbye to these gorgeous colours.
The In-Colours are only around for 2 years, I am going to miss these ones so much!! I have a couple of BIG  favourites in this In-colour set....
They are Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder.

Here are my projects for this colour challenge

Mediterranean Moments Meets Eastern Beauty

A Note For You

#2015incolours2017 #Mediterraneanmoments #Easternbeauty #KOCreationscards #Retiredproduct #watercolourscenes #Rubberstamping #Easternpalacebundle

For this card above I have used ribbon from the retired Carousels and Cupcakes embellishments kit.. The little flower buds were made using the Cool Treats Sprinkles Embellishments..
All water colouring and stamping has been done on Shimmer White card stock.

For the stamped image accents I used Pearl Basic Jewels, this helped tie in the flower buds a little more.

The repeat stamping for the background images are from the Easter Beauty Stamp set...
Stampin' Up! have released a gorgeous deal for all customers to take advantage of and it's only available for a short time! More info at the end of the blog.

To add a little interest inside I added a strip of retired Washi Tape from the Cool Treats range.

Ok a few more card deets.
The base colours for the cards are Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.
I have stamped the repeat images in Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron for the above card, and Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron for the one above this.

For the focals I have used all 5 of the retiring in-colours and added a small sentiment along the edges from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.
