Colour Inkspiration 45

It's hard to believe that it was a week ago I left for OnStage Auckland, complete with a baggage of butterflies that didn't leave me until my presentation was over! I came home with a parcel of new goodies, from the prize patrols and gifts at On Stage, but I didn't get to play with any of them until today.

I wanted to use the beautiful new set, Incredible Like You and I found inspiration at the colour challenge at Colour INKspiration. This is a fortnightly Facebook Challenge and the challenge this time is to use any or all of the 2017-19 In Colours. If you've never played with this crew, jump over and ask to join. You'll be inspired!

This set has some encouraging sayings and a bunch of floral doodads that you can play around with and combine. It will be available with the Occasions catalogue in January. The lovely poppy is a two step stamp and is almost like a lithograph in the way it's crosshatched. It's hard to pick a favourite, but the stripy lines look like they're going to be endlessly useful.

Another inspiration for this card was a personal challenge to not use the Big Shot to make it. It's so easy to go to the Big Shot for some wow factor but it's good to go back to basics from time to time and see what you can do.

This set of In-Colours is a favourite of mine and I've managed to get the whole five into this card, one way or another.

Update: Delighted to be a Top 5 Pick in Challenge 45.
