to the very first Colour INKspiration Blog Hop!
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.
There’s also a Facebook group for Stampin’ Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.
Here’s the deal – 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. Our first one starts on Wednesday, 11th January.
Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration ‘Challenge’ by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to.
Make sure you click on the link below and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.
Hope to see you there!
We have a fantastic colour challenge this week to get you started! Full of pretty pastels! Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise and Peekaboo Peach! Pick at least three – or up to all six! Neutrals are welcome – black, white, vanilla, crumb cake, kraft and sahara sand!
What a gorgeous colour palette to begin playing with!
I initially started by making a watercolour wash on some shimmery white to mimic the sky, using tempting turquoise, so saffron and blushing bride, which I planned to pair with our new Lift Me Up Bundle. But once I had it completed I instantly went back to my childhood – enjoying a cone with lovely gelato ice-cream flavours! You know…the kind you don’t seem to be able to find anymore! Well, lucky for me Saleabration has the perfect set for me to use! Yep, out came Tasty Trucks to create my gelato heaven!
I gave the truck a light wash of mint macaron and sweet sugarplum and then cut out the shape and windows before ‘colouring’ it with our fine tip glue pen to give it a glossy finish. I also finished off the ice creams with 2 coats of the fine tip glue pen to give them a bit of lift and shine! The sentiment was from the Suite Sentiments set and was perfect for my gelato card finished off with Copper Embossing powder!
Don’t forget – you can get your very own Tasty Trucks Set with any purchase over $90 whilst Saleabration is on! Just use my handy ‘Shop Now’ button to get your supplies.
I hoped you liked my creation! Continue on to Kathryn’s blog to see her use of the colour challenge! And don’t forget to join the challenge yourself over on our Facebook group!
