INKspired #121 Colour Challenge


Hi everyone.
Welcome to this fortnight's INKspired Blog Hop!

Before me on the hop was Barbara Williams, who I'm sure gave you inspiration with her creation using the Colour Combo Challenge below designed by Teneale Williams:

Make sure you hop all the way around to check out the wonderful and talented creations everyone has contributed this time round!

How about you have a go with this Colour Challenge?
I would love to see what you come up with!

Here's My Card - for family and friends that we cannot visit at the moment:

I started with a Pool Party card base. I decided to make my layers off centre this time for a change. My first layer was Pretty Peacock, followed by Old Olive and Mango Melody. I then added a Whisper White Layer which I stamped forming a wreath design with leaves and flowers from the Lovely You stamp set. I die cut a circle using the Stitched Circle dies in Whisper White and put in the middle of my wreath. I cut 2 strips, one from Pretty Peacock and one from Whisper White. The sentiment is from Lovely You stamp set and was stamped in Pretty Peacock and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then punched the ends of both the Pretty Peacock and Whisper White with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, layered them and attached the sentiment raised with dimensionals. I stamped some flowers again from the Lovely you stamp set in Pool Party and embossed them with Clear Embossing powder, fussy cut them out and added one to the sentiment and the others on top of where they were stamped within the wreath. Some silver pearls completed the flowers and sentiment. 

I love the way the clear embossing powder can be used over any colour ink and makes the image pop!

The inside is layered with Pretty Peacock, then Whisper White. The sentiment from Lovely You is stamped in Pretty Peacock. The flowers and leaves stamped in Pool Party, Mango Melody, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock.

A very versatile stamp set with beautiful sayings.

Thank you for stopping by, next up is Teresa Irwin,
Looking forward to seeing what she has created this time round

Have a Wonderful Day, KATRINA xx
