A Gorgeous Colour Combo

Good morning. I can hardly believe that a fortnight has past since our last challenge at An Oldie but a Goodie - where do the weeks go???
This fortnight the lovely Liza has given us a photo to use as your inspiration for the colours of your projects
Here's my take on it:

As always you must use a stamp (no Digi images allowed) that is at least 6 months old.
I have used a very neglected Hero Arts flower image.
I started by creating a background to stamp the image onto - using Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and some Pearl Glimmer Mist and then adding Brushed Corduroy around the edge. I stamped the flower image direct onto this piece of card using Brushed Corduroy and then again onto another piece of card to colour with the Spun Sugar & Tumbled Glass and then cut it out and layered it in top.
This was then mat & layered onto a co-ordinating piece of Kraft card and then onto the basecard.
Finishing touches - Martha Stewart punched butterflies, some scrummy sheer organza ribbon with a small Wild Orchid rosehead flower and a few flat backed pearls.
Sentiment - Whimsey Stamps from the ticket selection.

Hope you can join us this fortnight.
Please pop over and take a look at the other DT gorgoeus inspiration.
Thanks for dropping in.
Have a lovely day.

This is breathtaking Debs - I love everything about it. I'm currently thinking of trying to get into distress inks for backgrounds (I currently hardly own any but want to get more) and would appreciate any tips as your background is so smooth - lovely!
