Plentiful Plants for Colour INKspiration 129


Welcome to a new challenge at Colour INKspiration. Today's bright palette was chosen for us by crew member Monica Formosa.

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 three 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. We welcome Rebecca Nutley as our guest for this challenge,

If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest, for example Night of Navy for Starry Sky. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

While really liking this bright combination, I wasn't quite sure where they were going to take me. Plentiful Plants kept coming to mind whenever I was thinking about it so I got it out to see what would happen!

I've seen some unusual bright foliage in Fiji, Tahiti, Rarotonga and Samoa but I'm not quite sure that I ever saw bright blue - but it would be great if there were some because I'm really happy with this little grouping of plants.😀

We'd love to have you join in the challenge with us. Visit the Colour INKspiration site to check out the album of Crew Cards for inspiration. You can also add your entry there. We all enjoy seeing what you do with our colour palettes, so join in!

Product List


  1. This is one of those unexpected colour combos that I would never have thought to use for plants, but it totally works - I love it!

  2. Gorgeous card Jan ... the colours pack just as much a punch when used in small quantities with lots of white space. Even more so! Love it xxx
