Colour INKspiration #164

Hello and welcome to Colour INKspiration #164.

We are bidding farewell to these amazing In Colours with our Challenge today. I really have enjoyed the vibrance and depth of these In Colours. It was so lovely to have them during the lifting of Covid restrictions as we were navigating our way with masks and limitations on our lifestyle. These colours were just cheery and a delight to have as part of our colour palette. My favourites are Sweet Sorbet and Starry Sky equally, I cannot decide which I liked more. What did you like about these colours and which was your favourite?

I wanted to use a Bundle that was also retiring at the end of the current catalogue. I have not used the Colour and Contour stamp set as much as I would have liked. The dies were used a lot and will remain in my collection. The simple images in the stamp set are so lovely and I set about creating a bunch of blooms for the central focus of my card.

The card base is Starry Sky with a mat layer on top. I also used the scallop die to create a rectangle to adhere the blooms to. You can just see it peeking out the bottom of the blooms. After stamping the leaves I used a small blending brush to colour each leaf before fussy cutting them.

The sentiment was stamped on Starry Sky card stock and I die cut it with one of the rectangle die cuts and turned on its side and cut in half as it fit the sentiment better. I stamped the sentiment in Verssamark™ink, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool. I adhered it with Dimensionals to the bottom right of the blooms. I then tied a length of the Starry Sky Bakers Twine in a double bow and adhered it to the left hand side under the blooms using a Glue Dot™.

I enjoyed using these colours again much more than I anticipated. They are beautiful and bold. I have ordered some more card stock in Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet so I don't run short as I can see myself using it again and again.

Hope I have inspired you today to create uaing the In Colours or pull something out that you have hardly used and get creative! Thanks for stopping by today.
