The last fortnight has gone by so fast! Here it is, the shortest day has been and gone and it's time for a new challenge at Colour INKspiration.
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. Don't forget to answer the two easy questions you'll be asked when you ask to join the group.
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.
If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.
The palette is soft and romantic: Rococo Rose, Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White and Crumb Cake. I've been working with the suite of late, so decided to try out the flowers in these pastel colours.
I've built up the bouquet from Jar of Flowers by fussing cutting some flowers and popping them up on dimensionals and also by adding some in as extensions to the bouquet. I also used some of the die-cuts from the Sunflowers dies in the mix.
I love the clear gems from the Flowers for Every Season gems pack, because they look a little like dew drops or rain.
The white background is embossed with the fabulous new Tasteful Textile folder. The card base is stamped in Crumb Cake ink using the bouquet stamp.
We'd love to see what you make of these pastel colours. You can add your project, see the other entries and look at the Design Team inspiration by clicking here.
