Dainty Delight for Colour INKspiration 135


Welcome to our final challenge of 2022. This gorgeous palette was chosen for us by crew member Lou Kitzelman. 

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 Jane Martin as our Guest Designer 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 Granny Apple Green  for Parakeet Party. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

You might see this lovely combination as an unorthodox Christmas combo or as something else. I saw it as floral. On of the advantages of being a demonstrator is the chance to go to On Stage and being able to participate in a limited Pre-Preorder from the January 2023 Mini Catalogue. From that, I got the Dainty Delight bundle. This is a gorgeous bundle containing floral outline images and sentiments, along with dies for all the images and coordinating extra flowers and leaves.

I started by water colouring 3 small of Fluid100 Watercolour. One I coloured with Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay, one with Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral and one with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. 
From these, I cut the flowers and leaves.

For the base, I embossed a piece of Coastal Cabana with the Painted Texture embossing folder then cut out a circle where the flowers would be. From the Basic White, I cut a corresponding hole using the Stylish Shapes dies.

After stamping the sentiment, it was then a matter of assembly. It was fun arranging the flowers into a bouquet that burst from the frame. A few of the Brushed Brass Butterfly embellishments finished off the garden nicely!
