Well hello! And welcome to the 4th Colour INKspiration challenge. Each fortnight the crew inspires you with a blog hop as we unveil the new challenge colours, and you can join in on our challenge page! Come and join us. For a little bit of extra fun, each week the crew will pick a winner, and there’ll be a people’s choice winner too.
This time we have some big, bold, strong colours. Wow – aren’t they powerful?
Delightful Dijon, Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry and white.
And this is what I came up with…
Definitely a softer version of the same colours.
It uses the Basket Bunch stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue.
The greeting is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Any Occasion (#143348).
I did a touch of water colouring on Shimmery White cardstock for the daffodils.
For the tinted embossing, there were a few steps.
- Ink the stamp with Versamark ink
- Immediately after that ink the stamp in Crushed Curry
- Stamp the image onto the cardstock
- Poured the clear embossing powder on top of the stamped image, shake off the excess and let the heat tool work its magic.
The embossing created a nice raised edge, which makes the watercolouring even easier.
Thanks for visiting today. Next on the hop is the lovely Julia Quinn.
