It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of June! Where is the year going? I have to say that I am really enjoying doing the Colour Challenges with Colour Inkspiration. I am “challenged” nearly every time but I love pushing myself and stepping outside the traditional boundaries that I set for myself.
Speaking of challenges, here is another one! You can choose at least 4 of these colours – Whisper White, Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Smoky Slate and Peekaboo Peach.
I had a couple of attempts with my card for this challenge. I didn’t like them so you don’t get to see them! I wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set so I went back to the drawing board and started with a white base. I then stamped the jars in Smoky Slate. I actually wanted to use the flowers in the stamp set but I discovered that there isn’t a green in our colours so I couldn’t work out how to do the stems! Then I realised that there is a fish stamp with a matching framelit so hello fishies!!
I’m not sure what sort of fish they are, but mine are Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach!
There’s a cute sentiment in the stamp set, Best Fishes, so this will be my brother-in-law’s birthday card as he is a wanna-be fisherman. I wasn’t sure what to do with the sentiment but felt the card needed something at the top as well. I decided to stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate then stamp it another two more times before inking up again.
Now all I have to do is remember that I have made his card by the time his birthday comes around in September!!
Next up is the amazing Denita Wright-Smee.
Don’t forget that you can share your projects using this combo on our Facebook group.
