Colour Inkspiration #2 - Masculine Window Box

Welcome to another Colour Inkspiration Blog Hop Challenge, we have a great colour combo for you based on this beautiful image:

  • Wisteria Wonder
  • Soft Sky
  • Mint Macaron
  • Whisper White
  • Garden Green 

While I absolutely love succulents, and was tempted to be inspired by them  in my creation, but I had been playing around with my new Window Box framelits and decided to use the colour combo to make the cute hexagon box in a masculine style. I used one of the box toppers and inlaid strips of Wisteria Wonder and Soft Sky into the slits to tie the colour scheme together.

I was on a roll so decided to make a matching card, if you look closely you can see how I inked up the diagonal stripe stamp alternating colours to match the top of the box.  I am really happy with how this turned out and it has opened up  a world of possibility with this cute little box die.

Time to head over to Kelly's blog and see how she has used the combo.

If you would like to join in this week, head on over to the challenge Facebook page and upload your creation to the album for this challenge.

Happy Stamping
