What a fab site for today's Inspiration Challenge! I chose Salon Bleu and Schliersee. They are both so similar. But I loved the peach/gray combo.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. The two backgrounds were stamped with the pigment ink and the edges sponged w/ the same ink and a little of the darker fluid chalk ink on the very edge.
On the sentiment/label, I placed a mask where the sentiment would be and inked the rest DTP (direct to paper) with the pixie dust ink at the top, papaya cream ink in the middle and rose coral ink at the bottom. After it dried, I removed the mask and stamped the label and sentiment with black ink. I really wanted to use gray ink, but it just looked too washed out. I used a white gel pen to add the tiny white dots around the flowers. It was die cut w/ the coordinating Spellbinders Labels 18 die. I die cut a flourish out of some left over DTP c/s and added the two little punched birds and a double bow. The finished card is 6.25 x 4.50 (A6).

Now this is a color combo I would never think of..but I need to try it as your card is so beautiful! The flourishes, the bird are all fabulous and the little plants,etc with the hand applied white dots all add up to one stunning card!!
This is stunning! I love the peach on the black. Just Beautiful!! How did you get such vibrant color on black? I've never had any luck with that. The birds and the bow really top it off. Such a great card!
