Welcome to a new challenge at Colour INKspiration! This time around, I've had the pleasure of picking the inspiration, so I hope you like it.
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, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.
I've used the Pretty Perennials bundle for this card because I love all the extra little bits and pieces the die set offers and I really like the water-coloured. textured look of the images. If you like this set, order it soon as it will be disappearing at the end of June.
The background has been embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder. I'm in love with this folder!
After fussy-cutting the 'happy', I added in some shadowing in Gray Granite which not only tied the sentiment to the rest of the card but added some depth to the lettering. It's a simple, but effective, trick.
We'd love to see what you make of these colours.
