Colour INKspiration #14

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 1600 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.

I have hardly used this set so I pulled it out and thought hmmm a Baby card but for a girl who isn't too much of a girly girl

This is how it looks

The bear image was stamped off once for the background and for the two other stamps I just used the Smoky Slate first generation stamped for both images.

Great for a lady who has just had a little girl and not really into too much pinkish colouring.

I thought I was going to be a bit clever and I tried colouring the embossing paste and dabbing it over the original bear that I stamped to give  it the texture of fur....... what a disaster that turned out to be oooopss!!

  • Stamps: Baby Bear
  • Ink: Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy
  • Card: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy
  • Tools: Sweet and Sassy Framelits & Softly Falling Folder with the bigshot (I also ran the foam roller with a slight bit of Rich Razzleberry over the folder and pressed over the background)
  • Embelishments: Dimensionals and a touch of wink of stella

Jump on over to Rebecca to see her creation with these great colours!
