Goodbye, Plentiful Plants for Colour INKspiration 141

Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration! This green jungle of a colour challenge was chosen by Crew Member, Bronwyn Eastley.

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 Sarine Zijderveld 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 Shaded Spruce for Evening Evergreen. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

Once the retiring list is out I find I get nostalgic about the old friends and favourites that will be put aside for the new products. Today's card farewells many retiring friends: The Plentiful Plants bundle, the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder as well as Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. Eveni those gorgeous In Colour Jewels are going! Some of these will still be available in the Last Chance Sale - or will be until the 1 May - so have a look in my online store because it really will be your last chance to get them!

This card was super easy to make. I stamped  pots and some leaves, then die cut them along with leaves and a pot from the die set. Then I had some fun playing around with arranging them.

The sentiment is part of one of the sentiments in Plentiful Plants. I used a die from Something Fancy to cut it out.

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!
