Colour INKspration #162

Hello and welcome to Colour INKspiration #162.

This challenge has some amazing colours to work with. Chosen by crew member Rose Packer.

The colours were giving me vintage vibes and I set about to make a Toile like background layer that would look good alongside the stamped images.

The card base is Very Vanilla and the mat layer is Boho Blue. The Toile layer is Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock, so easy to create. I stamped the bird and flower in Early espresso in Very Vanilla card stock.  I coloured the bird in with Boho Blue and Crumb Cake Blends and the Bloom in Azure Afternoon and Crumb Cake Blends before die cutting both. I added some sparkle to the wings and back of the bird by using Wink Of Stella on these areas. I let this dry completely.

I tied the Boho Blue ribbon in a large bow and adhered to the top of the Toile layer. I cut two of the round labels from the Thoughtful Expressions dies. One in Boho Blue card stock and a smaller one in Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on the Very Vanilla piece. Glued both together before adhering to the card front using Dimensionals. 

I then adhered the bird and bloom using Dimensionals. The final touch was three ot the Boho Blue In Colour Dots adhereed to the Toile layer.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you feel inspired to join in a colour challenge or use the colours for a card of your own.

Aound the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - March Blues

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for March.

This month we are celebrating the colour blue with March Blues Monochrome Colour Challenge.

Below is an image of where the crew are from around the globe. Such a wonderful group of creatives wanting to inspire you with our March Blues Monochrome Colour Challenge.

The beautiful blues chosen for this months hop are

Pool Party
Balmy Blue 
Boho Blue
Misty Moonlight
Night of Navy

I love all the colours for this challenge and wanted to make a blue floral card. The Stippled Roses Bundle was perfect for this colour challenge. I have teamed it with the Perrenial Postage Dies.

I have kept the card fairly simple with a white card base and mat layer. I cut out a Perennial Postage rectangle in Basic White and blended some Pool Party ink on it lightly with a blending brush. I then adheres to the centre of the card using Dimensionals.

I stamped the roses and leaves in Night of Navy before cutting them out using the coordinating dies. I then coloured  the roses image only in Balmy Blue, Boho Blue and Mist Moonlight Stampin' Blends.

I also cut two of the smaller leves in Basic White card stock. I arranged all pieces and adhered to the front of the Perrenial Postage rectangle using Dimensionals and glue.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Basic White card stock before Die cutting it with the small Perrenial Postage rectangle. I cut a length of Night of Navy bordereed ribbon 1cm larger on either side of the sentiment label. Bannered the ends and adhere to the bottom right of the larger Perrenial Postage rectangle.
