Colour INKspiration #3 – CI03

Welcome to our third Colour INKspiration Challenge! And WOW do we have a colour challenge for you this week!

You may have come from Elizabeth Gross and here stunning project, or you may be starting here. So hop around to get some inspiration and ideas for this unusual colour combo, and then pop in to our Facebook page and play along with your very own creation!

We are using 5 colours for this INKspiration challenge – Marina Mist; Peekaboo Peach; Soft Suede; Whisper White and Soft Sky.

A gorgeous, but I’m not going to lie, a bit of a tricky challenge.  I really enjoy colour challenges to stretch me out of my comfort colour zone, but I had to play with this one in my head for a few days before I decided what products I wanted to use for this combination. I was quite happy with the end result.

A simple watercolored background was the base for this card.  I used the Stamp Off technique to soften the colours of soft suede and peekaboo peach, with a full coloured flower behind the stamped off one.

I love removing the white background on the White Perfect Accents and then using them on watercolour backgrounds.  I also added the little ‘leaf’ shape pieces that I cut in vellum from the long border framelit to create a bit more interest on the background.

Don’t forget to keep hopping around to see what everyone else has created with this challenge! Next on the hop is Paula Dobson with her amazing project!

Watercolour Wishes Card Kit

It seems I have been going mad for kit projects lately – and I HAVE!

I have kits super refreshing after such a busy year, to allow mw to create, without having to ‘think’ too much!

I took my Watercolour Wishes card kit away on a short trip with me as I knew i wouldn’t have to take anything else other than adhesive.  This kit truly has absolutely EVERYTHING you need to create 20 beautiful cards, in a number of different sizes.  It would be a great gift for the crafter who is just beginning or has very little supplies, as well as the experienced crafter.

The kit includes everything to decorate the 20 cards, including an exclusive stamp set, a mini clear block, two coordinating ink spots, dimensionals, embellishments, card bases and envelopes.  EVERYTHING! All packaged in a beautiful presentation box.

I have used sentiments specific to my needs – for my wonderful customers who place online orders through me – but the stamp set that comes with the kit has a great variety of sentiments – 10 in all!

There was also lots of embellishments left over – so I added more bling to my cards!

I HIGHLY recommend this kit. And remember – any $90 spent until March 31st will earn you Saleabration Freebies!
