Colourq challenge 174

Today, I have another entry in the Colourq challenge.  If you remember, the inspiration for the colours came from this photo:




and I thought I could do a better job (than I did yesterday) of capturing both the colours and the inspiration if I tried a new card.  I clear embossed a Hero Arts wooden stamp of the heart in cocoa brown colourbox ink, and coloured all the flowers with assorted markers in raspberry, deep salmon and pale pink.  I had to cut the heart out by hand as I don't have a heart die to match this stamp, but I am relieved it seems to look OK.  With the 'dirty' vanilla background and vanilla inked heart border, I have all the colours represented here.  I die cut some small Spellbinders Ironwork Accents to 'hold' the heart and sentiment.   I feel the overall effect is more in keeping with the photo, and I am quite pleased with it.
