Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks Colour INKspiration 39 – Subtles.

For this challenge we are using the subtle colour palette, where you can choose 3 subtle colours plus any basics to create your project.  Remember, once you have created it jump on over to the Colour INKspiration facebook group to upload your pic for the challenge right HERE.

Since our colour shake up in June,  the Subtles collection has by far been my stand out favourite colour group.  There is such a range of pretty, coordinating hues to play with, and Soft Sea Foam is by far one of my stand out colours!

However, today I decided to create my card in hues of blue using my current favourite stamp set – Healing Hugs!

I used a tutorial by the very talented Jennifer McGuire called Stamped see through cards to create tonights card.  I thought Healing hugs and the leaves would work perfectly to create a similar look to the one she creates on her video HERE.

These cards work by layering all the individual pieces together so they slightly overlap, then adhering them, so the card front is see through in the gaps.  It’s quite a clever and effective card and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

My flowers are coloured using Pool Party ink, the gently using a sponge dauber around the edges to add some Balmy Blue for extra depth. Add a bit of Pear Pizzaz for the leaves and my challenge was complete!

I hope you enjoyed my creation this week.  Don’t forget to upload yours by Monday 20th of August.

Now its time to hop on over to Jackie’s blog to see what she has created!

Happy Crafting everyone!
