Colour INKspiration #08

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 now has over 1300 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 very Autumn to me so I couldn't resist and pulled out a new set coming out very very soon.

These cards are always the hard ones to make if they are along the sympathy lines.
It could also be given to someone who has just had surgery or not feeling the best.

I made it into a card which folded into the centre on the front and had the leaves so they overlapped the opposite panel for a point of difference..
  • Stamps: Colorful Seasons
  • Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso
  • Card: Very Vanilla, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
  • Tools: Seasonal Layers with the bigshot
  • Embelishments: Dimensionals & Burlap Ribbon

Now check out Tanya's gorgeous card.
