Timeless Arrangements for CI154

Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration. This bright palette was chosen for us by Crew Member, Rose Packer. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our last challenge. We hope you enjoy this one too. 😀 

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 Yvon Doensen 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 Real Red for Poppy Parade. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

With that gorgeous bush climbing up the wall in the graphic, I couldn't quite get past florals. Or walls. So I ended up reaching for the Timeless Arrangements bundle along with the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder. 

After embossing the square of Crumb Cake with the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder, I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. 

I cut some of the foliage bars from the dies in Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Berry Burst and one in gold, plus some extra single stems of leaves in gold. Then I layered them up into two clusters and attached them to the centre of the card with one rotated 180 degrees to the other.


The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake and cut with one of the set's label dies. These little labels are so adorable that it worth the expense just to get them... and that great all-purpose happy sentiment. 😀

I've popped it up on dimensionals and added a swooshy gold bow made from the gold half of the Simply Elegant Trim combo. After that, I decided it didn't need any extra bling but of course, if you choose to CASE this project you're free to add some. 

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!
