Colour INKspiration – CI42


Colour INKspiration have a great colour combination for you this time. I’m so exciting to be hopping along and hope you enjoy my inspiration using these colours. Welcome, if you have hopped over from Bronwyn Eastley or if you are joining me here.

This challenge features Mint Macaron, Copper, Basic Black and Whisper White.


I just loved this combination and tossed up a couple of options before deciding on this…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Foliage Frames framelits, Copper Shimmer, Embossing paste

I stared with some Shimmery White cardstock and water-coloured some Mint Macaron ink over the base with my aqua painter and allowed to dry.

For my copper, I decided to go in a different direction… here I have added some Copper Shimmer paint to some Shimmery White Embossing paste – you can never have too much bling right?! I added quite a few drops of paint to the paste to achieve the right intensity of colour. I love how the shimmery effect highlights the green fleck.

I went with a brick stencil as this card will be a house warming card for my sister. Which is funny, as it coordinates with the inspirational image for this challenge too!

To coordinate with this theme, I positioned the die cut flowers in a climbing arrangement. These are from the Foliage Frames framelits, here I have used four and overlapped them to make them appear as one.

I finished off with a strip of the black organdy ribbon and punch circle shapes in Copper foil and mint Macaron. On top is my sentiment, a punched sentiment from the Sunshine Wishes stamp set. For some extra gloss and shine, I punched it from some Black Foil sheets, which are featured in the Halloween section of the Holiday Catalogue. I love little gems of accessories in there!

Next up in the hop is the amazing Jacque Williams.
