Summer Starfruit, Basic Grey and a pop of Island Indigo

Yellow, Grey and Indigo

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a fabulous new blog through pinterest (yep…I’m addicted!) and I took some inspiration from a stunning card made by Keisha Campbell.  Her work is beautiful and I love her photography – I sooo wish I could take photos like her. Photography lessons are now on my bucket list.  Check out her card here.

Inkydayz tips:

  • I’m loving the grey and yellow trend that I’m seeing everywhere at the moment.  Add a pop of Island Indigo and you have a match made in heaven.  My colour inspiration comes from this photo I found on pinterest – I prefer more of a mustard yellow and Summer Starfruit fits the bill perfectly.

  • Vellum stamped with Black Stazon makes a lovely change for a sentiment, don’t you think?

  • If you missed the Vine Street embossing folder during Sale-a-bration, there a plenty of others you can use instead.  Check out the range here.


  • Combining patterns is all the rage right now.  The Summer Starfruit geometric pattern from the Pinwheels On Parade Simply Scrappin Kit works beautifully with the stamped Basic Grey stripes.  Ihe Island Indigo floral butterflies from Twitterpated bring it all together.
  • A vintage faceted button threaded with linen thread and tied in a bow, adds a sweet finishing touch.
