Colour INKspiration 46 #CI46

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.

Welcome from the lovely Kim's page

This is my colour picture pick this fortnight!
Aren't the colours amazing? They are all new this year too!

I loved this picture as it reminded me of my own wedding (my bridesmaid dresses anyway)

Here I am with my beautiful sisters Lisa, Leanne and Sonia (my step sister and friend)
"sigh" feels like forever ago!

Anyway back to the task at hand, I made another pocket card for this challenge.

I love these colours together so much!

My class ladies made this card way back in September. 
So simple and I followed Jackie Aitkens tutorial for the card base. It is super easy to use!

You can get two tones of colour from the one inkpad like I have above with the Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick Inks. 
I have stamped off first for the lighter base image then stamped the second image over the top.
The bouquet bunch framelits are so easy to use and put together inside the jar.

  • Stamps: Graceful Garden, Jar of Love & Beautiful Bouquet
  • Ink: Gorgeous Grape, Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Black Stayz on
  • Card: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Lovely Lipstick, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Blueberry Bushel and Vellum
  • Tools:  Everyday Jars, Stitched Shapes and Bouquet Bunch Framelits with the bigshot, 
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals

Now on to see what Nikki has done with these gorgeous colours...… did I tell you I love them?!
