Inkspirations colour challenge #70

Do you notice anything different, anything LOVELY? ...
Yes! My blog has had a make-over! While the dotty blogger template did the job & all, well.. it was sadly lacking in creativity, and that's what we're all about here on a papercraft blog.
I've also changed my blog name. So if you are looking for Lulla's L-Ink, you're at the right place.
I'm joining in Makeesha's colour challenge this week, and as luck would have it, her colour palette matches my new blog. So in order to celebrate everything LOVELY, one lucky commenter on this post shall be picked by to receive this card. Excited? Well you should be because it took me hours to make ;)

And here is the gorgeous colour line-up..

I've used stamps from the retired Asian Artistry set and Medallion by SU, and sentiment by PTI. The ribbon was some white satin from my stash that I've coloured with my Blushing Bride Stampin' Write marker. Clever, huh. I've stamped my main image in Early Espresso ink & coloured the dragonfly & blossoms in my Perfect Plum watercolour crayon, and spritzed a little blushing bride over the image too. The Medallion was then stamped in Versa Mark, heat embossed with clear powder, and brayered over in Sahara Sand ink.

I hope you love it, and the new blog too, I'd love to hear your feedback.

Oh Wow! Lee, this is gorgeous, a really stunning design. I love the white embossed background, it sets the image off perfectly. And the ribbon is so, so pretty. I wouldn't have known you had coloured it, it looks like it always was that colour. Very pretty, gorgeous inspiration.
Have a wonderful weekend.
PS Love the new look blog as well, beautiful colours.
