Well I have to say this colour palette is beautiful but it was certainly a challenge- quite apart from finding the time to create which is a challenge all of its own.
I normally sway quite easily to blues and greens, and my first impression of the new In Colours was that Terracotta Tile would be my least favourite. How wrong I was. It's still not my fave but I surprise myself with how much I am using it.
I think working with a colour that is not your favourite is a good way to drive some creative thinking.
I was very keen to use the stamp set from the Fro the Love of Felt kit - the leaves and the stitching and the flower are all gorgeous elements. The kit is really gorgeous. So this is what I came up with.
welcome back to another round of Colour INKspiration. It seems like an age since I was involved and I didn't want another challenge to race past me. This one runs for 3 weeks so hopefully you will get a chance to join in with us.
I used both the pink and terracotta to watercolour a panel of shimmery white, stamped the leaves and the blu sprigs, but stamped the flowers on a scrap and fussy cut them. As well as the tiniest edge of the scalloped trim on each side I added a little bit of cream lace and some stitched embossing along one edge. When I cut the scalloped trim apart the fibres from the middle frayed off quite easily and they are tucked behind the sentiment. They have a lovely weight to them.
However, I will admit I was tired when I stole a few moments in my craft room to make this because I managed to stamp the inside of the card thinking it was portrait instead of landscape!! OH well, I have included the photo so you can see what a lovely group of elements they are.
So after me you are back to the beginning of the hop with Bronwyn and her gorgeous creation - if you have followed Bronwyn for a while you'll recognise owls as a recurring theme for her- so sweet.
Don't forget we love to see what you can create too. Send us a photo on our Facebook group.
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
