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.

Happy Stamping
