It’s the second Wednesday of the month, so that means it’s time for another Colour INKspiration Challenge.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month the design team create projects using Colour Schemes inspired by Pinterest. You can take the hop, see everyone’s projects and then play along by uploading your work of art on our Facebook Page HERE.
This week we have a very cool colour palette to play along to. Our colour selection is Whisper White; Dapper Denim; Sahara Sand and Basic Grey!
These are great masculine colours to play with to create cards just in time for Father’s Day here in Australia, but you might say I went in completely the opposite direction 🙂
As I mulled over the colours in my head, I thought about how pretty the blue and white would be to create the look of Wedgewood China pieces. Then I had a lightbulb moment where I realised that our new Just Add Colour Speciality Designer Series Paper had some images of Teapots and cups, so I knew that is what I would use. When thinking about incorporating the rest of the colours an image just evolved in my head about the look i wanted to achieve. I have seen some stunning U-Fold cards and more recently a ‘Bench Fold Card’ by The Craft Spa – take a look at her work HERE. Here work is lovely, so I wanted to have a try at my own.
My card doesn’t fold flat for posting, but I thought it would be lovely as a gift to welcome someone to their new home, or for Mother’s Day. And it was truly such a fun card to make once I had played around with some measurements!
I would have loved to have added a vase with flowers, but alas – I couldn’t make it work with the selected colours for this challenge.
I hope you enjoyed my project today.
Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Jacque Williams and see her stunning project!
Totally gorgeous and adorable and wonderful. I love the tea setting. It shows off the u fold to perfection. Just brilliant.
Thanks so much Julia xx
