Quiet Meadow for CI 97


Welcome to a new challenge at Colour INKspiration! This pretty combination is the pick of crew member, Denita Wright-Smee. The photo was taken in New South Wales by a friend of her husband. Gorgeous photography!

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.

As it happens, this is the second card I made for this challenge. The first one is fine - and I might even post it later in the challenge - but yesterday my box of pre-orders from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue arrived and I just HAD to play!

Out of the box came the Quiet Meadow bundle. The cling stamp set is fabulously eclectic: sentiments, flowers in different styles, splatter and a wonderful partially obscured text stamp. Some of them you can see in the over-stamping of the ink-smooshed background.

The Meadow dies are absolute showstoppers: outlines of various flowers, just perfect as silhouettes or coloured to make realistic images, some butterflies and lovely labels that fit the sentiments. I couldn't wait to get cutting and stamping!

We'd love to see what you make of these sunset colours.
