Welcome to our next Colour INKspiration Challenge! Your entries have amazed us so far! So much talent and creativity out there – it’s a joy to see, but makes it very difficult to vote! Keep up the great work! You can join the fun on our Facebook Group HERE.
We have a beautiful colour swatch for you all this week. These colours work so well together. We have Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Gold to work with. Even though the image says gold foil, it can be any gold you like.
There are some beautiful projects by the crew this week, so make sure you hop around to see them all, including from our guest designer – Kim Oliver. Welcome Kim!
I found these colours compliment each other so very nicely and had a bit of fun creating.
I thought today I would try my hand at water colouring my own background. There was a similar navy striped paper in our Floral Boutique DSP, but the lines were fine and quite dark. I really like the more subtle water coloured lines. They are super simple to create too – just pop some ink on your aqua painter and run it straight across your cardstock. It’s really that simple. I used our Shimmery White for this, because it holds the water so well and the subtle shimmer is just gorgeous!
I even splattered on some extra sparkle with gold glitter, by mixing a small amount of tombow with water, then flicking it across my card using an aqua painter. I have a specific aqua painter for this job, because it does get glue in the brush. Sprinkle your card with gold glitter and tap of the excess and leave to dry. It creates a beautiful effect on cards.
Well I do hope you have enjoyed my creation this week. Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Monique to see what she has created this week!
