Guest Designer for Colour INKspiration Challenges

I am so excited to be a guest designer for the new Colour INKspiration Challenge (I was the winner of Challenge #103)! What a wonderful privilege! Join me for challenge #105…

So pretty!

I think the Crumb Cake card base works well with the colour inspiration. What do you think?

Heads up! The Summer Shadows Dies that coordinate with the Shaded Summer Stamp set is ONLY available as free Level 2 SALE-a-bration product (with a $180.00 order in Australia). And only while stock is available! Don’t miss out!

Painting the colour onto the stamp creates a soft watercolour effect (squeeze the barrel softly to let out only the smallest amount of water before picking up the ink from a clear block).

Tip! Wait for the Old Olive and Fresh Freesia watercolour to dry before adding the Mango Melody centre (the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool makes restamping a breeze!)

Shimmery White cardstock works well when you want to add a little watercolour. Clear heat embossing over coloured ink also adds a little extra interest…

For a colourful sentiment (with shine and texture) in five quick steps…

1 Add Versamark ink to your stamp

2 Add coloured ink of your choice to your stamp

3 Stamp

4 Add Clear embossing powder

5 Heat set

Remember to CLEAN the stamp in between cards (when you plan to make more of the same design).

After having so much fun with this beautiful colour combination I was left with a whole lot of extras. It was however, the negative die cut pieces that caught my eye! I cannot throw away watercolour leftovers!

I found the Purple floral die cut piece (from the Penned Flowers Dies) in my ‘leftovers container’ and the sentiment (also clear embossed) was cut with one of the Tasteful Labels Dies
Even altered, the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon is gorgeous!

I hope that I have been able to inspire you enough and that you will join us in the new Colour INKspiration challenge!

Thank you for stopping by!
