Welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge, where we take inspiration from the colours in a different photograph each week, and use those colours as the basis for our projects.
- Night of Navy
- Marina Mist
- Very Vanilla
- Always Artichoke
- Sahara Sand
I have to share that I initially found this colour combo to be a bit of a challenge, for starters Always Artichoke is my least favourite colour, and the combo doesn't have nice bright colours. But I decided to have a play around and surprised myself by actually made two cards for the challenge!
This first card is the one I started with, deciding that an easy way to use the colours would be by stamping them in with the various circle stamps from Eastern Beauty. However once I had done this I wasn't really sure where to go next, so I put the base piece aside and started over.
I had seen a card by Kylie Bertucci that used the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (which I think needs a longer name!), and sponged colour over the top. I had a play around with this, adding the colours from the challenge to different parts of the design until I was happy with it. Layering on the double background enhances the contrast between Night of Navy and Marina Mist and brightens the card.
I then went back and finished off my first card with a similar but reversed background and card base and added the sentiment and "flower". I was really pleased that I persisted with what was very much a challenge for me.
