Colour INKspiration #6: Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and a touch of Gold meets Stampin’ Up!’s mini egg cartons




What an amazing colour palette we have for ColourInkspiration Challenge #5!

Such a striking combo, it actually made me want to run to the craft room to create something.

Colour Inkspiration #6

I pulled out my inks and papers, but in the end my eyes kept returning to the fabulous mini egg cartons that were sitting on my desk. I think they were calling my name. Check them out here.

They come in a pack of 8 neutral, uncoloured egg cartons, and you can dress them up any way you like! Very clever actually.


Colouring Stampin’ Up! Mini Egg Cartons


I added a few drops of ink refill to a spritzer, along with some Isocol rubbing alcohol, and sprayed the colour on to my box. The rubbing alcohol works great, because it evaporates really quickly and doesn’t seem to ‘wet’ the carton as much as spritzing with water. You could spritz with pure ink refill, I suppose, but the colour would be very intense, so I like to add a carrier like the rubbing alcohol.

I went for a mottled build up of colour as shown below…

And inside is a lovely box of treats for my ‘sweetheart’!

Get it? Sweet {heart}   <3

I played with lots of dies and embellishments and basically just had fun putting this little project together. Don’t forget to create matching “fill” for inside your box. The easiest way is to cut up coordinating cardstock with the fringe scissors.

Thanks for visiting today. Next stop is the fabulous Kelly Kent. You are going to LOVE her project.

    I loved seeing the transition of colour in your egg box Simone and how beautifully you dressed it up. All the gold makes it extra luscious!

    The layers of colours on your egg carton are really cool. gives the project an antique look.
