Colour INKspiration #60 blog hop

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

The colours for this challenge are: Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock and Blueberry Bushel. You may add Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and metallics to your project. We also allow ‘Ivory’ in the Stampin’ Blends. If you don’t have all the colour palette, feel free to use the closest SU substitute.
My project for this project was partly inspired by fellow Colour INKspiration crew member, Bronwyn Eastley and her project a couple of colour challenges ago, and another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who unfortunately I am not able to give credit for idea.
Like the other Stampin’Up! demonstrator, I decided to use the protective foam packaging that comes with the blends markers Storage by Stamping Up! for my project. I decided to make a shaker-style shadow box from the packaging.  The entire interior of the packaging has been covered by card stock that has been coloured with a sponge brayer, sponging and a few stamps from the Sea of Textures and High Tide stamp sets, and the Birch background stamp.   The clouds in the scene is made with the Birch background stamp.  All the inks in challenge colours where used to create the scene.
I used card stock in all the challenge colours and the Under the Sea dies, the Smooth Sailing dies to create more features for the shadow box.  Some of these have been embellished with a white paint pen.  I’ve used iridenscent sequins and some random beads from my bead stash for some octopus treasure inside. The exterior of the shadow box has been cover in some retired DSP (designer series paper)

Used in this project:

Paper: Whisper White, Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Blueberry Bushel, Tranquil Textures DSP (retired)

Ink: Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Blueberry Bushel

Stamps: High Tide, Sea of Textures, Birch

Die cutting and embossing tools: Under the Sea dies, Smooth Sailing dies

Accessories: iridescent sequin assortment, window sheet
