Colour INKspiration #168

Hello and welcome to Colour INKspiration #168!

This challenge's gorgeous inspiration image was chosen by crew member Bernie Roodt. A place that I would love to visit for sure.

I wanted to create a masculine card with this gorgeous colour palette. The Trucking Along stamp set was perfect and I love the truck in Cajun Craze. I imagine a fully rusted truck sitting out in a shed or at a farm gate full of sunflowers for sale by the road. 

The gorgeous Tartan Foil Designer Series Paper worked so well for this card. As did the Perennial Postage Dies. The banner from the Nested Essentials Dies was stamped, heat embossed and then die cut down to size to suit the sentiment and the size of the card. I used a piece of Cajun Craze card stock as a a mat layer between the Lost Lagoon card base and the Tartan Foil layer, to add contrast and dimension.

The truck was stamped in Cajun Craze for the outline then the for the truck body too. Wheels coloured in Basic Black Stampin' Blends. The tail light in Real Red and headlight in Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. The flowers were stamped in Memento™Tuxedo Black ink then Real Red and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends for the sunflowers and Lost Lagoon Stampin' Blends for the leaves. The ground area stamped in Crumb Cake ink for added dimension.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to be creative and perhaps join us in this colour challenge. You can join us on Facebook here or just create using the colour palette.

Have a great week!
