Colour INKspiration #25

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 1750 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.

You have come from the amazing Rose's project

Colour INKspiration 25

Welcome to a new year and a fresh challenge from the colour INKspiration Crew!
These gorgeous colours were chosen by Tricia Raineri.

I just earned Epic Celebrations through Sale-a-bration and thought it was the perfect set to use with this colour combo!

Great card for a teenager boy or girl! I had nearly forgotten about the Foil Frenzy Paper as I have only used it on one card!

With a hint of a neutral colour (black) it pops when the guitar is embossed with white embossing powder. As usual I did do a bit of fussy cutting with the guitar and the black border around the punched sentiment.

  • Stamps: Epic Celebrations (Free on a $90 AUD spend)
  • Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist
  • Card: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Night of Navy, Basic Black, Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP, Myths & Magic Glimmer paper and Petal Passion DSP
  • Tools: Lots of Labels Framelits with the Bigshot as well as the 1 1/4 circle punch
  • Embelishments:  Dimensionals

Next up is the ever so lovely Tanya
