CI05 A Pastel Palette for a Globe

Welcome back for another week at Colour INKspiration with this gorgeous Pastel Palette.

I do love Soft Sky and Sahara Sand but I'm going to have to be honest ..... I've never really loved Blushing Bride (I'm in a minority here!) - so it was easy for me to start with the blue and brown and add the pink as an accent.

I watercoloured the background then heat embossed the leaf wreath from "Places You'll Go" in copper and coloured the leaves with the Soft Sky Marker. I stitched a short piece of Soft Sky Seam Binding in place and layered up a little love note from the Lift Me Up set, some copper metallic thread and some blushing Bride Glimmer Paper which I cut using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. The little enamel dots are from the retired subtles set but I added a little sparkle with some wink of stella on each of them. I love the depth of colour you can get using the ink neat rather than from the foam pad.


I was quite happy with the overall effect but had a few sample bits lying on the desk so I figured i may as well create them into something too. so here's version 2 - though a few of these products are now retired I still love them.

If you follow me you'll know I love an Easel card  ( and so do my customers) - they are a great feature at the Handmade Expo Markets which I do regularly here in Rockhampton.

I hope you have been inspired by something you have seen on this hop and that you find some time to be creative and join in the colour challenge fun on our Facebook page in the next 2 weeks. 
We love seeing all the amazing and different ideas that you all have using the same colour palette.

Next on the hop is Nikki- which might bring you back to the beginning of the loop.

and don't forget,

"don't just post online, post something pretty",

  8. These are both so great Elizabeth. I love all of the little details you've added. Why don't I own this set???

  9. They are both stunning Liz! The copper embossing and soft watercolour and details make for two beautiful cards...Love! xx

  10. Two beautiful cards, I really do miss that embossing folder as it makes a beautiful background. The copper really matches in the with subtle colours.
