Colour INKspiration #36

Hey Everyone

Welcome to the newest challenge at Colour INKspiration Challenges.  I am in love with the colours in these inspiration pics:

I took inspiration rom the gorgeous flower in the bottom right photo.  I thought it looked very similar to the flower I’ve used from Remarkable You.  I’ve given it a light watercolour with Crushed Curry Ink and then added some Soft Suede Ink to the bottom of the petals to add some shadows.

My leaves are also from this set and I have given the lightest of watercolour with Basic Gray Ink – there was really much more water than colour.

The sentiment I’ve used is stamped in Basic Gray  I’ve been wanting to use this sentiment from Abstract Impressions on a card and so I really designed this card around using this sentiment.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #336

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing tonight is for the latest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch has been designed by Jen Mitchell.  I am in love with Jen’s gorgeously clean lines and perfect choice of stamps and colours.

This card came together so easy! I totally love it when that happens.  I hadn’t opened up my pack of Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper yet (gasp!) and thought it would work well with Jen’s sketch.  I chose the chevron DSP from the pack and the back of another sheet to layer behind it.  I really love the kraft colour in these papers.

The stamp set I chose to use was one that I haven’t used in a while – the set is called Remarkable You.  These flowers have stems on them, but I chose to cut them off for my card as I couldn’t quite place the flowers like I wanted and work the stems in.  The leaves are also from this set.  As always, I have fussy cut them, because I like layers and also enjoy the fussy cutting time. My flower is lightly watercoloured with Peekaboo Peach Ink and my leaves are coloured with Old Olive Ink.

The sentiment I have used is from Four You.  Yes, it’s one of my favourites as I like the font and the size of the sentiment.  I’ve heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder on to Basic Black Cardstock.  Under my sentiment I have used some Black Bakers Twine and an off cut strip of the kraft cardstock punched with my Ticket Tear Border Punch.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have totally nailed this weeks sketch with their amazing cards.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and get ready to be inspired.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #319

Hey Everyone

Freshly Made Sketches is back for 2018!  I hope you’re ready for our creative weekly sketches and hope to see you all play along with our challenges this year! Our first sketch for the year has been designed by the uber talented Rita Wright.  Take a look at her great sketch (I’ve just realised my alignment on my card is a tad off from the sketch, but I hope you’ll forgive me as I’m still in holiday mode…..)

As you can see I centred my layers but if you look at my card from an angle, it might look like the sketch…..  I am in LOVE with these flowers from Stampin’ Up!s Petal Palette.  I gave my flowers a light watercolour with Brushing Bride Ink.  I then stamped the leaves from Remarkable You and watercoloured them with Old Olive Ink.  The sentiment I’ve used is from From You.  I heat embossed this with white embossing powder on Smoky Slate cardstock.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #317

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means we have a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches for you.  Not long until Christmas, so you might want to use this weeks fabulous sketch to get some of your last minute Christmas cards made!

This weeks sketch has been designed by Jen Mitchell.  Jen’s cards are super clean and perfect in detail. Head over to her blog and check out her creations!

Graceful Garden, as you probably already know, is my favourite to colour.  I’ve used my Pool Party Watercolor Pencil to colour my petals and my leaves are coloured with Old Olive. The leaves I’ve fussy cut are from Stampin’ Up!s Remarkable You.  I then added a strip of Striped Ribbon and a row of Black Sequin Trim.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #306

Hey Everyone

Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch hostess is the fabulously talented Jen Mitchell.  Jen is not only an amazing cardmaker but she also designs wonderful sketches – I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it.

Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is one of my favs at the moment.  I almost reach for it every time I go to create a card.  I couldn’t go past it this time as I knew that I wanted to use these gorgeous flowers from Graceful Garden again that I had already stamped, watercoloured with Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo Ink, fussy cut and had just found laying on my desk.  I consider using them on my card as partly cleaning up my mess of a desk. Imagine how much messier it would’ve been if I had left them on my desk…….

The leaves were also found laying on my desk.  These leaves are from a Stampin’ Up! set called Remarkable You and are watercoloured with Old Olive Ink.  I really like the size of these leaves paired with the roses.  They also look like they belong together.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Colorful Seasons and is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.

Here’s my card:

We would love it if you could join us for this weeks challenge. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the wonderful inspiration the design team have provided.

I’ve used some new Stampin’ Up! goodies for my card today.  The pretty blue DSP is from Floral Boutique DSP and the flower and leaves are from Remarkable You – a stamp set I only just ordered even though it was in a previous catalogue.  This set is perfect for watercolouring.  I’ve coloured my flower with Flirty Flamingo ink and the leaves are coloured with Pear Pizzazz.  Here’s my card:
