Another delightful colour combination from Colour Inkspiration for challenge #04. We are a group of Aussie and NZ Stampin' Up!® demonstrators, creating samples based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches. There is a Facebook group for Stampin' Up!® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations. You don't need a blog, and you don't need to be a demonstrator. This colour swatch with the four different pictures and strong shades of purple and yellow was almost too inspiring, I had trouble deciding where to go with it, and was very tempted to use Beautiful You.
On the inside the card has been lined with Elegant Eggplant and another bloom stamped with Archival Basic Grey Ink. This ink is waterproof, easy to clean from your stamps, and the grey is softer than Basic Black. This 'friends' sentiment belongs to Garden In Bloom, while the sentiment on the outside is from Suite Sentiments. Suite Sentiments is at the very back of the Occasions Catalogue, and it contains sentiments for Easter, Graduation, birthdays and guys. What's more, they're in fonts that match sets in the Occasions Catalogue and it shows you which. Although it's not particularly supposed to be paired with this stamp set, don't you think the two sentiments fit together just like a hand in a glove?
When I coloured this card, I squeezed my closed inkpad to get a pool of ink in the lid. I was able to use it fairly concentrated to get the strong purple shade on some petals, or watered right down to put a wash of Crushed Curry onto the background. It is such a relaxing thing to do.
It would be fun to see what you decide to craft using these colours and Stampin' Up!® products,don't forget to share at our spot on Facebook.
