Today’s projects are what I have done for the Colour INKspiration Facebook group challenge. These colours were so easy to use that I have done two projects for this challenge.
The colours for challenge #32 are: Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, and Gold Foil.
As I said before, it was really easy to come up with some projects for this challenge. This colour combination is beautiful and makes for lovely feminine projects. In both projects, I’ve incorporated the soon-to-be retired Eastern Gold stickers.
My first project is a card. I took a piece of retired Floral Boutique DSP and mounted it with a matt of Night of Navy card stock. This is mounted on to a Pink Pirouette card base. I used a stamp from the Flourishing Phases stamp set and stamped on Night of Navy card stock with VersaMark ink which I then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I stamped the image several times without overlapping the images to get good coverage over the card stock. The Night of Navy card stock is bordered by thin strips of gold foil on two sides. The sentiment comes from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The sentiment is cut out using the Petals & More thinlets. I placed one of the Eastern gold stickers on Night of Navy card stock and then used the Eastern Medallion thinlits to cut out the flower. The last thing was to add more of the smaller Eastern gold stickers randomly on the card.
Hint: Place the Eastern Gold stickers on the card stock and then cut out your desired shape. Especially when the stickers require precise placement. Once these stickers touch card stock, there’s no lifting them to reposition.
My next project is a box. There is no stamping in this box but the Eastern gold stickers and the gold faceted gems give an opulent look. I used the Window Box thinlets to cut out the box out of Pink Pirouette card stock. The top of the box is lined with Night of Navy card stock. Another Eastern gold flower sticker is placed on Whisper White card stock and the cut out. More Easter gold sticker and a gold faceted gem are used to finish the box.
