Colour INKspiration - #02 - Builder Birdcage


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 7 pm (AEDT) or 6pm (Queensland summer time), 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!

And this week, the colours are:  Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, and Garden Green.  Aren't they gorgeous!!!




I've pulled out one of my favourite new stamps for this lovely soft colour palette - Builder Birdcage and stamped those gorgeous cages with Garden Green, Wisteria Wonder, and Soft Sky.  I then used a little more ink to gently watercolour them to give a little more depth.


The large greeting is in Mint Macaron and cut using the Hello You thinlits, and this is embellished with some more birds which have been fussy cut.  If you don't mind a slightly skinnier bird, you can use the Tree Builder punch too for these little guys.


It's a bit tricky to see in the photo, but I've also added a little dazzling diamonds to these wisteria birds, so they are very sparkly!!



Now it's time for you to hop on along to see Mel's gorgeous jar of flowers.
