Colour INKspiration #11 Vintage colours



Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration blog hop!

This week we are using some gorgeous colours that to me say vintage!!
They are:  Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Soft Suede.


So, I was super keen to explore some 'new' goodies from our NEW Annual Catalogue, and I've incorporated them into my card.  They are:  Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks; Very Vanilla thick bakers twine; Glitter Enamel Dots; and this lovely new stamp set - Floral Sentiments.


I coloured the embossing paste with a drop of Soft Suede reinker, and used the lovely lattice mask for my background.  The stamped image is stamped with Early Espresso, and I watercoloured the flowers using Marina Mist.  Because the ink is water based, I have some lovely bleeding from the Espresso ink into my Marina Mist flowers which I think is just gorgeous!!  I've finished off the flowers with a coordinating glitter enamel dot.  These dots are ombre shades so there are so many possibilities for colours - how great is that!!


Now it's time for you to hop along to the fabulous Bronwyn to see her gorgeous project!!


And to add your fabulousness to our challenge, head to our facebook page and join in the fun!!

Happy Stamping!
Love Julia.  x

  3. So beautiful. You have made that stamp more appealing than the catty shows it with your beautiful soft watercolouting- and yes I love how the brown bleeds a little into the blue. Awesome work with not getting the paste too close to your stamped image!
