It’s time for another awesome Colour INKspiration challenge. We had some great entries for CI#35 with the Neutrals Collections. You can find all the action on our Facebook page.
We’d love to see you join in challenge #36 which is this stunning colour palette of Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Basic Gray & Silver.
You can also add any Basic – Whisper White, Very Vanilla & Basic Black and any metallic.
Yellow, gray, black & white together is one of my all-time favourite colour combinations. The addition of a brown tone certainly made it interesting!!!
I played up the yellow & gray tones and added just a touch of Soft Suede.
Both of these cards using the same techniques & layout – I’ve just switched the colours, orientation & centrepiece to get two unique designs with minimal extra design effort.
This card features the butterfly from Springtime Impressions Thinlits, Tea Room & Nature’s Poem DSP and a wreath made from one of the little stamps in the Love What You Do stamp set.
I have left both cards without a sentiment for two reasons – one, it didn’t really fit the design and second is because I love sentiment-free cards!
I’ve used the Subtle Embossing Folder for both card bases – it just lifts a blank space without being overpowering. Everyone needs to order this embossing folder!!
I love having DSP stacks back in the catalogue. They are perfect for colour challenges because you always have the colour you need!!! And the patterns this year are awesome – plain stripes and dots plus creative stripes & dots.
The centrepiece of each card features a perfect wreath. I’d seen these shared on others projects, but had the chance to try out this technique recently when it was part of a class run by Mandy Depiazzi.
It uses a template and your stamparatus. I’m not sure who came up with this idea first, but this youtube tutorial by Barb Stamps is a great explanation on how to make your template & create your wreath.
This is a close-up of the Crushed Curry wreath. I’ve just stamped in all 8 positions using a 2-3/4″ square of Whisper White cardstock.
Thanks for joining me today. Can’t wait to see your creation on our Facebook page.
