Colour INKspiration Challenge # 2

Good evening friends ~

Surprise!  I have some exciting news to share; I'm on the Colour INKspiration Crew!  It consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.

There's also a Facebook group for Stampin' Up! enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.

Here's the deal - Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7pm (AEST), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.

Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration 'Challenge' by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to.  Make sure you click on the link below and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.

Hope to see you there!

Welcome to the second Colour INKspiration challenge.  Bron has given us a lovely 'succulent' colour combo today. Hopefully these colours will inspire you to join the challenge fun and share your projects.  Check it out.

If you're following the hop, you will have come from Chlo's Craft Closet - how fabulous is that gorgeous big bloom Chloe coloured?  If you've come straight here and wish to start at the Colour INKspiration challenge page over on FB, just click the banner above to be redirected.  Once you join the group you'll be able to load your projects there and join the fun each fortnight.

The birthday card I have created is fairly simple as I've been in holiday mode for so long I'm feeling a bit rusty.  I pulled out my Botanical Builder framelits, and used a sponge dauber to add ink to the flower and leaves - hopefully this gives them a little more depth.  The sentiment is from the new So In Love set in the Occasions Catty.  I took this photo at night so my little blingy bits aren't all sparkly as they are in real life.

Next on the hop is the lovely, Julia Quinn.  Click the 'next blog' image below to be taken to her project.

Thanks so much for taking a little time to stop by, and if you've left a comment thanks, I love reading them.

  2. So pretty Patrice. I love the shading on the petals.

  3. Lovely card. Love the flower.

  4. I love the way diagonal lines on a card always look dynamic and I never think of doing it. Your card is gorgeous.

  5. I love the simplicity of this card, so clean and fresh. Just lovely.

  6. Another CAS stunner lovely! The wisteria, mint and white are beautifully balanced. xx
