Fun on Wheels for Colour INKspiration 148


Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration! This earthy palette was chosen for us by Crew Member Brenton Golley. 

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 Bev Evans as 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 Copper Clay for Cajun Craze. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

This colour palette got ma thinking masculine because for me, one entry point to a male-suitable card is colour choice. I'll often choose an earthy palette for my guy cards. Another entry point is set choice. While Fun on Wheels is totally suitable for a woman, it works really well for males too. So in happy combination, I ended up with this quick and easy male card....

Although quick and easy, the layering and use of background stamping and DSP give it a stylish look. The cute bike dies are pretty fun too! You can view details of the Fun on Wheels bundle right here.

If you'd like to see how I made this card, then here's a video tutorial for you. If you've never extended a die to stretch around a sentiment, be sure to check out that segment of the video. You won't believe how easy it is!

We'd love to have you join in the challenge with us. Visit the Colour INKspiration page 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!
