Colour INKspiration 65 #CI65

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 Cathy's page

I really like the richness of these colours.

I was using the stars in a class a couple of weeks ago so I decided to keep using them as they are so pretty.

The strips of paper in the background are 1.2cm wide (great for using up scraps) and the black background has a splash of Champagne Shimmery Paint sprayed on it to add some sparkle.

Lastly the flowers were stamped on the shimmery white cardstock in Merry Merlot and I used an aqua painter to move the colour around.

  • Stamps: Free as a Bird
  • Ink: Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot
  • Card: Whisper White, Shimmery White, Basic Black, Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot
  • Tools: Aqua Painter, Stitched Stars Dies and Stitched Rectangle Dies with a Die Cutting Machine
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals and Champagne Shimmer Paint

        Now lets go over to my lovely friend Elizabeth who I am sure she will wow you with her project.


        1. Nicole this is amazing. Love, love , love it. The soft watercolour flowers are perfect against the striking stripes!

        2. The shimmery Champagne spray is fabulous! It's subtle yet effective.

        3. Love this bold design! Nice take on an otherwise subtle colour combo!

        4. I love the sparkle on the black background. I love everything about this card from the stripes to the flowers!
