Colour INKspiration #07

What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which has over 1000 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.

These colours are gorgeous.
I went simple this week and used project life on a card.
This is how it worked out

I tried every which way to place everything on this card and found it a little bit of a challenge.
This was the best layout for it.

  • Stamps: Special Reason
  • Card: Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe, Pink Pirouette, Mint Macaron, Silver Foil
  • Ink: Pink Pirouette
  • Tools: Stitched Oval & Layering Oval Framelits, Stylish Stems, and petal burst embossing folder with the bigshot
  • Embelishments: Dimensionals, Gold faceted Gems and Celebrate Everyday Project Life card

Now pop on over to visit Narelle and her amazing project.
