Beauty of the Deep for Colour INKspiration 164


Welcome to the 164th challenge at Colour INKspiration. It's that time of the year when we say goodbye to one set of In Colors to make room for a new palette. So this challenge is about saying farewell to this bright, vibrant group of colours. If you'd like to join in, you can use one of them,  or all of them or any number in between.

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're very pleased to welcome Kay Mather as our Guest Designer for this challenge. This challenge is open for two weeks and closes Monday 6 May, 7pm AEST.

If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest, for example Lemon-Lime Twist for Parakeet Party. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

While the sad news is that these colours are retiring, the good news is that the Beauty of the Deep stamps and dies are carrying over. These colours make me think of a bright coral reef and pretty tropical fish so here's where that idea ended up....

Beauty of the Deep is an image-only set, so the sentiment comes from the new Country Birdhouse set. It will be available from May 1.

You can see what the rest of the Design Team have done with these colours in the Crew Inspiration Album on the Colour INKspiration Challenge Facebook page.

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.

  1. This is gorgeous Jan - those colours add a real vibrancy to your underwater scene. It looks almost fluorescent - I love it!
