Colour INKspiration #64


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

The colours for this challenge are: Highland Heather, Purple Posy and Garden Green. You may add Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and metallics to your project. We also allow ‘Ivory’ and ‘Bronze’ in the Stampin’ Blends. If you don’t have all the colour palette, feel free to use the closest SU substitute.

Initial I had another design planned for this challenge but in the end these colours didn’t lend themselves toward the design. So I had to come up with another design, I decided to CASE one of the cards on page 35 of the Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue.  I started  by using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set to stamp the flowers. I used Highland Heather, Purple Posy ink to stamp the flowers by sponging Highland Heather ink over the Purple Posy ink. I darkened the centre of the flowers with the Highland Heather stampin write marker to get variation in the intensity of colour.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green.  I made additional foliage by using the In the Woods dies.  I cut out the background with the Stitched Rectangle dies out of Whisper White card stock.  I coloured this panel with a sponge brayer and Highland Heather ink and splattered the panel with water.

Once I had all these elements, I then had to decide what card base to make.  I was going to use Purple Posy but there was not enough contrast, so I decided to Crumb Cake. I feed a piece of Crumb cake through the big shot with the Subtle embossing folder then attached it to a Crumb Cake card base. Then I attached the elements to the card.  I used the dark Highland Heather blends marker to colour some white baker’s twine. The senitment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. Some glitter epoxy shapes were added to finish card.
