A big hello to you all!
Welcome back to another Colour INKspiration! You may be popping over from the lovely Rebecca Scurr, or starting right here! So have a hop around and then come back and create your own masterpiece! We are loving seeing your fabulous creations on our Facebook page – so keep them rolling in!
I am glad to be back this week after missing the last one. Going to Picture to Page in Pakenham and then having a Biggest Morning Tea Event really kept me very busy! And as Colour Challenges are my favourite kinds of challenges, I was a bit sad to have missed it!!!
But this week’s Challenge I found just a little bit tougher than usual!
Our colour palette this week are gorgeous Autumn / Wintery Hues with Cajun Craze (yes, dust it off!), Island Indigo, Smokey Slate and Delightful Dijon (retiring colour).
So I set to work creating some Autumn / Wintery cards to set these colours off. My first card I had a bit of fun playing around with the Shaving Foam Technique again. It’s a great way to mix a few co-ordinating colours and make those stunning backgrounds. You can watch my video over at my You Tube Channel HERE to learn how to create your own.
I mixed Island Indigo, Cajun Craze and Smokey Slate re inkers into my shaving foam for the background. I love all the leaves falling from trees in Autumn. The bright reds and soft yellows! So I stamped the leaves in Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon. I lightly sponged the tips of the Delightful Dijon leaves in Cajun Craze to give them an Autumn feel. I also used the matching framelits to cut a leaf in Delightful Dijon, and then sponged the edges in Cajun Craze, and I then topped this one off with some our fine tip glue pen to really make it stand out!
The sentiments from the Colourful Seasons Stamp set are just stunning!
I then went on to have a bit more of a play, with a card type I don’t normally do, but I thought I would show you the ned result anyway…because sometimes its all about the learning as we play!
I would love to know what you think, so feel free to leave a comment to let me know!
I do hope you are going to make some time to be inspired and play along too 🙂
Now it’s time to hop on over to Nicole Wilson and see what she has created to inspire you all!
Happy Creating everyone!
