Pretty pretty Colour INKspiration #13


Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration challenge!!
Image may contain: plant, flower and nature

This time we are being inspired by these gorgeous colours:
Sweet Sugarplum, Wild Wasabi, Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig



And I have created two different cards using these colours.  This card has a water splash feature in ink sponged onto glossy cardstock.  I sponged with Wild Wasabi and Lemon Lime Twist, and then lightly sprayed with my Stampin' Mist (it was quick to find!!) to create the lovely splatters.  The photo has collected the shine off the paper, but it looks so sweet in real life!!


The stamp set is Sharing Sweet Thoughts which is the wonderful fundraising stamp set for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).  
I've used the Sweet Sugarplum for the butterflies, and the Fresh Fig for the jar.


My second card features the Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle of stamp set and thinlet die.  The background piece has been embossed with Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and the flowers were punched using the 1/2" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch.  These flowers have fun 2 step stamp images - I've used the Sweet Sugarplum for the base, and the Fresh Fig for the line image stamped over the top.  

Next on the hop is the talented Rose and her gorgeous project!!


Please join in the fun of our challenge - you can add your projects to our fun facebook challenge page using this link!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia    x

  3. Both are beautiful examples of contrasting ways to use the colour palette. Love the water splatter in the first and the bold graphics and lettering in the second.
