Colour INKspiration 26 #CI26

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.

Colour INKspiration 26

Another set of beautiful colours

I went back to the annual catalogue to see what hasn't been touched for a while and found my Watercolour Wings stampset. I did mix a little new product in with this card.

Firstly I took the Bermuda bay and a sponge brayer and coloured the top of the shimmery white paper, then the Emerald Envy and Tranquil Tide at the Bottom of the Card.

I cracked out the new Stamparatus to 3 step stamp the Butterfly in the same 3 colours.
The floral diecut is from the new Petals and More Thinlits along with the sentiment from Perennial Birthday. I have even popped some of the Bermuda bay shimmery ribbon from Sale-a-bration behind the butterfly.

  • Stamps: Watercolour Wings & sentiment from Perennial Birthday
  • Ink: Bermuda Bay, Emerald Envy, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand
  • Card: Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand, Shimmery White & Bermuda Bay
  • Tools: Petals and More Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits with the Bigshot 
  • Embelishments:  Dimensionals, wink of stella & Shimmery Bermuda Bay Ribbon from Sale-a-bration
