Hello & welcome to a Colour INKspiration challenge design team blog hop. We’re all linking together to share projects we’ve create with the challenge colours – can you believe we’re up to #56!!!
You may have hopped here from our amazing guest designer – Cazz Boylan. I just loved her beautiful card! Cazz won challenge #54 and we were delighted to have her hop with us.

All those gorgeous pink & purple tones made me want to watercolour – so I did!!! On watercolour paper, I used an Aqua Painter to marble Melon Mambo, Berry Burst & Blackberry Bliss inks together. I did it all at the same time (rather than waiting for each colour to dry) so they ran together to create a mix of those tones.
The colours were just perfect for a congratulations card for a friend who welcomed a new grandbaby girl into the world this month. With this as my plan, I added elephants in Whisper White using the Elephant Builder Punch. I love the bright white against the vibrant watercolouring.
To add a bit of texture to the stark white, I embossed the elephants – Quilt Top for the Grandma Elephant and Tufted for the baby elephant.
I’ve used the Little Elephant stamp set (coordinates with the punch) for the sentiment & hearts. The hearts are clear embossed for a cute little touch.
Both the stamp set and punch are carrying over to the new catalogue – yay!
Next on the hop is my friend Jacque Williams with a card I can’t wait to CASE! I’m not going to spoil the surprise – but I love that she’s added that DSP to this colour combination!
Thanks for joining us!
