What an amazing colour combination the Colour INKspiration crew have in store for you this challenge hop. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Julia, I know you will enjoy this hop.
Here is our inspirational image and colour combination is made up of many colours and we decided to focus on a minimum of three from this collection…
I was inspired by this image of flowers and decided to go with a stamp set I haven’t used a lot of lately – Vibrant Vases. This stamp set was kind of part II to the Vase Builder stamp set, that was new to the collection in the last Annual catalogue. It gave us more reason to play with the Vase punch, after we thought we may have used it enough… is there really such a thing in the crafting space… as enough!
The colours I focussed on are Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron. Here are my creations…
I needed some little note cards this week, so here I have pulled out my Gallery Grunge stamp set, for a lovely textural background. I love the image of the parquetry style boards. Here I stamped it in Mint Macaron for a background effect. Then I set about creating my feature elements… the vases and flowers. I alternated colours to keep things interesting.
The Vibrant Vases stamp set, is a two-step stamp set, meaning there are two part to the one image. You can just choose to use the outline stamp on it’s own and leave it as is or even colour it in other ways, like pencils. But for a quick and easy stamping fix using the filler stamp makes creating a breeze. Plus being a disINKtive style stamp set means you get a tonal range stamped with the ink, making your projects look like you’ve spent hours watercolouring them! In my creations, I did stamp off the background images, so that it stamped a lighter shade again.
I punched the vases and the tuplip stamped images using the punch, and fussy cut the larger flowers. I set my flowers on different types of Purple ribbons.
I love a simple design, it makes for interchanging colours and elements really easy for fast creations that a slightly different too.
Next up in the hop is the amazing Lou Kitzelman.
