Paint Palettes Inspiration

I pulled a muscle in my back (oh ouch) and was laying in bed looking at my wall color and my drapes...they really look a lot like Baja Breeze...hmm maybe I like this color more than I thought, maybe that would make a good color pallette someday....So, with a sore back you can never stay in one position too long, and later I looked at the Inspiration Challenge and look at's a paint inspired pallette for rooms. How fun!

Here's the inspiration room I chose.

And I put together a quick card with the new set Eastern Blooms that hadn't seen ink yet.

I stamped the main branch of flowers with Chocolate Chip to mimic the photo on the wall. I added extra flowers in Sahara Sand and Baja Breeze and pierced some of the chocolate chip flowers. I wanted to get the feel of the geometric bedspread so I added the DP in Urban Garden and also stamped the flowers on the Sahara Sand layer in a geometric pattern. Some pretty ribbon, a felt flower and piercing. To give the feel of another layer on the sentiment (from Fresh Cuts), I ran the Sahara oval through the CC ink pad. At night it's so much harder for me to get a good picture so I took one from each side.

Here's a closeup:

Alright...sore back again, time for a new position not sitting at the computer!
