Colour INKspiration #50 blog hop

Welcome to another Colour INKspriation blog hop. You may have started here or you may have hopped over to my page from Rebecca Scurr’s page.


The colours for this challenge are: Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Mango Melody and Coast Cabana. You can also add any of the basic colours (Basic Black, Whisper White and Very Vanilla) and metallics to your projects.

When I saw this colour scheme, I knew I had to use the By the Bay Sale-a-bration stamp set. I used the all the challenge colours to watercolour the images. I stamped the images on watercolour paper with Stazon ink.   I applied the ink colours with an aqua painter and where necessary layered colours using different intensities to achieve the results I wanted.

The stamped images were cut our using the rectangle stitched framelits. I then matted the panel in Mango Melody and Blueberry Bushel card stock. I created the a centre stepped card base out of Sahara Sand card stock and used the Hardwood background stamp with Sahara Sand ink to stamp the front of the card base. I mounted the panels to the card base and used some retire enamel shapes to finish embellishing the card.

Used in these project:

Paper: Watercolour, Sahara Sand, Mango Melody, Blueberry Bushel

Ink: Stazon Black, Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Mango Melody,Coast Cabana

Stamps: By the Bay, Hardwood

Bigshot tools: Retangle Stitched framelits

Accessories: Silver enamel shapes (retired)

  1. Oh that’s a great card using this set. Love the painting, but the timber stamp on the base card looks so realistic with the metallic elements across the front. very nautical.

  2. Wonderful water-colouring! That set suits the colours and I think the Hardwood works perfectly with them.

  3. Wow, this is amazing and what a brilliant way to use these colours. Love your water colouring.
