Colour INKspiration 43 #CI43

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 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.

Thanks for hopping on by from Rose, I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far.

Well it was use 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5...…. I used 4 of them which wasn't bad.

I tend not to use a lot of yellow in my cards as the main colour so I challenged myself to do this for this challenge.

This stampset was actually available for demonstrators before it went live in the annual catalogue and for some reason I wasn't all that drawn to it.
I purchased it before I went on holidays and I do not regret that decision one bit!

The vellum butterflies are adhered to the card with glue dots and I bent up their wings slightly to give some dimension to the card.

  • Ink: Stayz On, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch
