Layers of Beauty for Colour INKspiration 168


Welcome to the 168th challenge at Colour INKspiration. We have a colourful combination for you this time around, chosen by crew member Bernie Roodt.

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 delighted to welcome Sharon Dalton as our Guest for this challenge.

This challenge is open for nearly two weeks and closes Monday July 8, 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 Crushed Curry for Daffodil Delight. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Basic Beige and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

These colours told me they were a floral mix, so I got out the Layers of Beauty bundle. After stamping the floral spray in Tuxedo Black ink, I used the five layer stencil set to colour it: First layer in Real Red, second in Cajun Craze, part of the third in Daffodil Delight and layers four and five in Lost Lagoon.

After masking the flowers off, I lightly splattered some diluted Lost Lagoon and some Wink of Stella to give a raindrop effect in the background. I like the subtle interest it adds.

I mounted the panel on a mat of Gold Foil before attaching it to a Real Red card base. The sentiment, from Cheerful Daisies, is gold embossed and cut using one of the labels from Unbounded Love die set.

The embellishments, that have a Lost Lagoon tinge to them, are from the Adhesive Backed Pearl Trio.

I'm excited to see what you do with these pretty colours!

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.
