Welcome back to another year of Colour INKspiration challenges. The design crew look forward to bringing you inspiration using select colour combinations. These will kick-off a challenge fortnight where you can create using this colour combination and load your creation to our facebook challenge group.
This year we have made changed the way we post our Crew inspiration – rather than a blog hop, we will load our creations directly into an album in the challenge group. Join the group and check out the crew’s images: #CI71.
This is our inspiration for this challenge….
Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Gray Granite. Plus you can add the basics of White, Black and Vanilla as well as metallics.
My card today features a sneak peak…
This stamp set is new Sale-a-Bration set coming in the second release on March 2. It’s called Tags in Bloom and it’s a ripper. I love that it coordinates with the new Label Me Lovely punch from the Mini catalogue!!
I kept things simple for my first play…. Water coloured the background in Pool Party ink with an aqua painter. Once dry, I adhered this to a Whisper White thick card base.
I stamped the main image on some scrap whisper white and used the punch to create a window. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to trim around it. I found the one that fitted three sides, then trimmed down the fourth edge in tight.
The stamp set comes with pieces to colour with, so I coloured the flowers in Highland Heather and leaves in Pear Pizzazz – with some I stamped off to create a lighter shade.
Stamping two separate flowers which I fussy cut out, I adhered these on the right. Trimming a small piece of the Granite ribbon, I folded this and layered it on the left. Then used dimensionals to adhere the frame down, over the water coloured background.
I finished off with a sentiment from the set, which are sized perfectly to fit in the punched shape size. I stamped this one in Gray Granite ink. I just love this sentiment, it is one I write in cards a bit, so I’m very happy to have a stamp that says this!!
I hope you have enjoyed this inspiration, for more pop over to our Facebook Challenge group and check out the crews inspiration in Album #CI71. Then load up your creation using these colours. This challenge is open until Monday 24th February. Look forward to seeing you over on the group.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
