Welcome to the last Colour Inkspiration challenge for 2020. Can you believe that we are almost at the end of the year!

We have a stunning image for inspiration this week. I just love the bright colours and it’s still Christmassy.

Isn’t it gorgeous!! I would love to have a fireplace just so I could have a mantle to display pretties on!

So the colours for this challenge are Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, Magenta Madness, Gorgeous Grape and Glitter. So pretty!! Now you need to choose at least 3 and of course you can include neutrals like white, black, crumb cake etc.

I decided to use them all! I created a watercolour piece using watercolour paper and reinkers. Have to admit that it was a bit scary and I was worried it wasn’t going to look pretty but you’ll see I was wrong. I then cut out a couple of butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty thinlits. I also cut them out in silver foil to layer over each other.

I then created the base of the card using Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grape. The sentiment is from the new Enjoy the Moment stamp set which is coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue. I cut it out using the new Messages die. Now this die is just one big piece where you can cut out all the shapes at once. If you don’t want them all at once, just stamp your sentiment on a bigger piece of cardstock than you need then cut out that one piece in the shape that you want. I used a piece of washi tape to hold the paper in place.

Didn’t my watercolouring look pretty! I’m so happy with how it turned out. And I didn’t end up with it all over my hands (which usually happens!!)
