Well, it's strange times indeed. New Zealand will wake up in the morning to Day 1 of a stringent, but necessary, four-week lockdown and a national State of Emergency. Tough times but if we all get on board and obey the strict rules on not mixing with anyone outside of our own household, then it might end sooner for all of us. The only bright side is that we might all have time for some more crafting, so the new challenge at Colour Inkspiration is timely.
If you haven't played with us before, we are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from the South Pacific. Challenges are shown and entered via our Facebook Group page. If you don't belong, and would like to, click here.
Each challenge, Top Picks and a winner are chosen by the crew and the winner offered a chance to Guest Design with us for a future challenge.
To me, these four colours shouted out for a masculine card. Since the many of the significant males in my family are golfers, then it was to the new Clubhouse Suite that I turned.
I used Artisan Textures to add in some splashes of colour behind the golf clubs and shield that make up the main cluster of elements in this card. The wooden trellis strip from the Clubhouse elements pack blends in nicely with the Mango Melody and adds a rustic touch. The rhinestones are coloured using a dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blend.
Over on the Colour Inkspiration Facebook Group page, you'll find a folder full of inspiration from the Design Crew to help get your ideas flowing. We'd love to see what you do with these colours so if you haven't asked to join the group, please visit us and ask to join. When you do, make sure you answer the questions or else your request won't be accepted.
