colour INKspiration #42, Mint and Copper Kitchen inspiration

Welcome back for another round of Colour INKspiration. And what a stunning colour palette we have this week for CI#42.
It's no secret that Mint Macaron is one of my favourite greens - and green is probably my favourite colour, so I loved this combination.
I love the copper bowls and the farmhouse feel in the Inspo pic so it was an easy jump to the Country Home stamp set and the copper jug and milk urn. I often have ginger flowers in my kitchen and they are very tall so I love the idea of a very tall arrangement in a big jug.
I heat embossed the images using copper powder on the copper foil and fussy cut them. It was easiest to cut through the bottom join of the jug handle to cut the excess away, and then just glue it back in place.
I stamped a row of kitchen tiles and sponged champagne shimmer paint on the black embossed strip.
The greenery is just stamped in place - very easy. The distINKtive design on the Wishing You Well set is wonderful.

Since I ended up with lots of bits I made a few alternatives.
Champagne shimmer paint on white embossed card. Leaves from Petal Palette suite and Jar of Love. The Milk can is embossed with black on copper, think I like the copper on copper better.
The rest of the Shimmer on Black embossed panel. And a few leaves and things that were lying in "The Useful Box" 
and a simple inside treatment
The easiest way to get the handle cut out on the jug. A few other bits and pieces seemed to work together too!

I'm sandwiched between two Nics this week. 
Before me on the hop this week is fabulous Nicki Spencer, wasn't her sweet bicycle just so cute. Next  this week is the talented Nicole in WA. You're going to love her project. 

And don't forget we love to see what you post. Upload a photo of your project to our Facebook page. It's so fun to see how everyone interperets the same colours and the huge variety of projects.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
