Welcome to our first Colour Inkspiration challenge for 2021. I hope your year has started off on a good note! I’ve had 2 weeks of holidays and my first day back was still at home due to being in lockdown for 3 days. So it’s an odd start to going back to work!!
We have a pretty challenge image for this challenge, which was taken by our very own Cheryl.
The colours are Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot, Calypso Coral, Magenta Madness and Garden Green. You can, of course, add in neutrals and bling like silver, gold and metallics.
I actually had a couple of attempts at this challenge. First time around, I added in Cajun Craze instead of Calypso Coral and I wasn’t happy with the result. So for my second go, I went outside my comfort zone and had a play with the dies from the Many Medallions Dies. I cut a set of three of the small dies in each colour and then layered them onto a sheet of paper. I then attached them to a piece of adhesive sheets and used the new Gilded leafing which I dabbed onto the sticky parts with a soft paint brush. When using the gilded leafing, make sure the WINDOW IS CLOSED and there is no breeze!!! That stuff can spread quickly!!
I then mounted it onto a piece of cardstock and trimmed it to the size I wanted. I then added another layer and attached that to the Magneta Madness cardbase.
As the background is a bit busy, I wanted to keep the sentiment simple, so I cut a stitched rectangle from the Ornate Garden dies and the sentiment is from the Bloom & Grow stamp set.
