Colour INKspiration 34 #CI34

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 nearly 1900 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 immediately had an idea for this card and out came the new set Sea of Textures!

This I have previously called a window box card which is fitting but I have since found out it is called a Diorama card.

I have just realised I didn't put a sentiment on it... oh well looks like if I use it for something I can add it later... I think I was too excited with my idea to even worry about it.

The Just Add Colour DSP panel at the back just finished this card off and it matched in with the underwater theme perfectly. 

  • Stamps: Sea of Textures
  • Ink: Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight
  • Card: Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Basic Grey, Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Just Add Colour DSP.
  • Tools: Under the Sea & Layering Ovals Framelits Dies & Seaside Embossing Folder with the bigshot, Daffodil Delight light and dark, Calypso Coral Light and Dark, Pool Party Light and dark and Smokey Slate Stampin' Write markers.

Next up is the amazing Jacque who I would just like to say a massive congratulations on reaching the first 1 Million dollar sales award in the South Pacific.
Well done!! x
