Dainty Delight for Colour INKspiration 151

Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration. This bright and pretty palette was chosen for us by Crew Member, Cathy Pinchbeck. Thank you to everyone who pulled out the stops and joined in with our 150th challenge - we hope you find this pretty combination as inspirational. 😀 

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 Heather Noble 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 Misty Moonlight for Boho Blue. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

These colours were slow to speak to me, despite the pretty graphic, but in the end they seemed to whisper 'floral' to me. So I got out the Dainty Delight bundle to play around with.

I added a sentiment from Timeless Arrangements and also had a play with the new Deckled Circle dies too. 

I used a spot of water colouring to help create my mini-garden scene. You can see how I did it in the tutorial below.

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!

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. 

You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking here, or on any of the products below.

Product List


  1. I love the soft watercolouring on those diecuts Jan - it adds a lovely ethereal feel to the pretty florals for sure.

  2. Oh this is so pretty Jan. Pecan Pie is such an amazing colour, especially when softened with watercolouring like this. xxx
