CI #21 - Rainbow Birthday

Welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge, and what a bright and fun colour combo we have for you this week.

Aren't those flowers beautiful?  The colours we have chosen from this image are:
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • So Saffron
  • Rose Red
  • Pear Pizzaz
  • Soft Sky

When it comes to create for these challenges I often lay out pieces of cardstock in the challenge colours, and shuffle them around to help inspire me.  This week as I was doing this I realised that they were almost a full rainbow!  From that discovery I decided to use one of the stamps from Work of Art to make a rainbow background, for each colour I stamped in full strength, then stamped off twice to get three shades of each one.  

Once that was done I thought they looked a bit like streamers and so the addition of matching balloons seemed like the perfect accompaniment. Balloons on their own were a bit plain so I added gold embossing using Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  While I had that stamp set out I used the Happy stamped onto the banner, then added a gold Birthday using Happy Birthday Thinlits cutting off the Happy.

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the challenge colours to create your project and add a picture to the CI Facebook Page.

Time to hop on over and see what the lovely Rachel has created this week.

Happy Stamping
