Colour INKspiration 36 #CI36

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 was a little stumped on this colour challenge, then I pulled out some of my new DSP as a couple of the colours are in it!

So Lucky as I needed something simple this week as I am still feeling a bit average!

This is going to an amazing friend of mine as a massive thankyou for something she did for me last week and I am forever grateful! 

Did you know that the thinlits from Animal Friends match the DSP in Animal Expedition?
That is what I used for the already pre-coloured Rhino!!

  • Stamps: Best Birds, Animal Outing
  • Ink: Crushed Curry
  • Card: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Silver Foil and Animal Expedition
  • Tools: Animal Friends & Apron of Love with the bigshot, 2 1/2" circle, Leaf & triple banner punches, Crushed Curry & Basic Grey Stampin' Write markers.
  • Embellishments: Rhinestones and Dimensionals

Next up is Kim's take on this colour combo


  1. Totally love everything about this card - you nailed it! Kelly x

  2. Nicole, I didn't realize the framelits coordinate with the DSP - you're an enabler now! The use of that grid/linen stamp from Best Birds to texturize the card base is the best use I've seen of that image. Thanks for lots of great inspiration.

  3. I love your card this week Nicole, and understand about not being 100%! I knew these colours would be great with Animal Outing!

  4. This is gorgeous Nicole. This little rhino is perfect for the use of these colours. Super cute <3

  5. This is such a cool card and a perfect use of the colours. I adore Mr Rhino and I was also thrilled to discover the framelits fit the DSP.

  6. LOVE how you have used that stamp from Best Birds - too clever, not to mention that you ACED the colour combo.
