Colour INKspiration 57 #CI57

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 2000 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 Kim's page

I did take a bit of the inspiration picture and carried it over to my card.

The flowers were coloured by stamping them into the Daffodil Delight and then sponge daubering the Lovely Lipstick around the edges.

The leaves were punched out with the Leaf Punch and the flowers and sentiment both fussy cut.
To finish it off there was a generous amount of Wink of Stella added to the flowers although you can't see it all that well in the picture.

  • Stamps: Ittty Bitty Birthdays and Floral Essence
  • Ink: Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight
  • Card: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black
  • Tools: Stitched Shapes Framelits with the Bigshot and Leaf Punch
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals & Wink of Stella

      Now off  to my gorgeous friend Liz to see her project


      1. Oh this is so pretty. I love the flowers stamped in the background. And your colouring is glorious.

      2. I love how you have used the Floral Essence stamp set with the Challenge Colours, Nicole. Beautiful! D x
