Welcome to a new challenge at Colour INKspiration. This lovely image and colourway was chosen by Crew Member Cheryll Miller.
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. This time, we have the talented Karen Hadler joining us as Guest Designer.
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.
Procrastinating for this challenge turned out to be a good thing because while I was doing it, my pre-order box of goodies from the forthcoming July-December Mini Catalogue arrived. The new Harvest Meadow DSP contains both Bumblebee and Soft Succulent in its colour-way, so it was easy from there to create something to go with it.
After stamping the image from Nature's Harvest onto watercolour paper in Stazon, I water coloured the leaves in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen, the flowers in Bumblebee and Pale Papaya and die cut it out. Yes, this amazing set comes with dies!
Also in this sneak peek, you'll notice the FABULOUS embossing folder, Timeworn Type, and the equally amazing Brushed Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots. And look - the dies even come with labels to match some of the sentiments!
I'm pretty sure that this suite is going to be the latest at the top of my list of favourites.
The Colour INKspiration crew would love to see what you do with these colours, so please play along with us.
