Just A Note CI#50

Colour INKspiration is a fortnightly blog initiated by Bronwyn Eastley in Tasmania. The design team is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project. Our inspiration colours for Challenge #51 are Berry Burst, Mango Melody, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz.

Surprisingly perhaps, this was a difficult colour combo for me. I spent a long time making an elaborate card for this challenge, but the fancy vase of flowers just didn't do it for me. I tossed most of it in the bin!

The two flowers on the circle were retrieved, and I found another piece of Wood Textures DSP, but that is where the similarities end.

The butterfly has been stamped on thick Whisper White and coloured using sponge daubers, before punching. This colours them beyond the stamped line, and gives a nice coverage.

The best thing is that I've been meaning to write a short note to a dear school friend of my mother's, who is in her nineties, and this is perfect!

Now you're heading across the ocean to Jan Clothier
