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.
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.
Choose 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 colours!
I chose to use 1 colour.....
I pulled out a set that I recently purchased and although I have actually never cut any of my stamps apart, I did cut the sentiments off to make separate stamps as I prefer to use them differently to the way they come in the case.
I did use all the picture stamps out of this set.
The background was stamped in the smaller flower image and two small panels on top were the two fish images out of the set.
I fussy cut the bonsai tree out and because it is stamped onto whisper white it looks great against the base card.
Monochrome is so striking I think I might go and make the other colours into this card too.....
