Colour Inspiration - Elegant

Here at Green Tara we are surrounded by lots of colour. Every day we see great combinations and would like to share them to help inspire your creativity. No matter if you are a cake decorator, a florist, scrapbooker or maker of invitations, wouldn't it be nice to have a "go-to" file for some inspiration. Each week we will bring another gorgeous combination to you.

This week, we are keeping it simple yet elegant with the timeless combination of gold, black and white. Suitable for any formal occasion, but also making a splash in the world of scrapbooking lately.

Embossed Petals

Sometimes a layout needs a pop of something to finish it off. 
We like what Peta did with the petals to make them stand out.


Brian and Dawn

"I was using these beautiful vintage tones on the layout of my in-laws wedding, but they were too muted. I swiped some versamark ink over them, then dipped them in gold embossing powder and heated. This made them stand out a little more and when combined with the gold stamens, Damask flower and gorgeous ribbons, the whole layout felt complete. Vintage doesn't have to be dull."

Colouring In

The acrylic embellishments have been flying off the shelf and while white and ivory are classy, we have been playing around with them to see what we could create:

White pearl cluster coloured with black alcohol ink (Copic, Sharpie etc) and combined with black pearl stamens, 6cm white petals and 15cm black satin ribbon.
