Welcome to another Colour INKspiration Blog Hop and Challenge – where every second and fourth Wednesday of the month a new Pinterest Inspired colour swatch will be uploaded to the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group, and the Colour INKspiration Design Team will get the ball rolling with a blog hop.

You may be starting here – or you might have hopped on over from Lou Kitzelman at With a Bow on Top. What a great project!  

Our Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch for Colour INKspiration number 4 is:

What a beautiful, rich palette to work with! I know we are gong to get some stunning projects in this Colour INKspiration Challenge!

I mentioned in my post on Sunday for CASEing the Catty (CTC116) that I participated in a couple of swaps at a team Stamp Camp last weekend even though I unfortunately couldn’t attend at the last moment. I said I’d share the other swap today – some here it is:

I really wanted the colours to be the feature of the card so brayered Elegant Eggplant and Crushed Curry onto the amazing Irresistibly Floral Speciality DSP with the sponge brayers. It’s such a quick and easy way of creating a colour-rich background as the pre-embossed images on the DSP resist the ink you brayer on – and then the image stands out! 

As I was making swaps,I many of these cards and used three of the patterns in the DSP.

You can see how different each of the papers looks.

I tied a bow in Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine on the Floral patterns – but just knotted the twine on the diamond for a more masculine look.

If you are wondering which stamp set that sentiment comes from – it’s one of two stamps in the just released “Reverse Words” set.The other sentiment is Hooray.

Reverse Words

Reverse Words is a new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) reward stamp set – one of three new items you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order until the end of Sale-A-Bration – 31st March. You can see all three new items HERE.

Remember all the other SAB products are still available while stocks last – check them out HERE

I used my re-inkers, in Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon and Elegant Eggplant, and put a few drops of each onto a baby-wipe to make a multi-coloured ‘ink pad’ to stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White.

After cutting the Sentiments out with one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I popped it up on dimensionals and added an Enamel Shape from the Regals pack – either Elegant Eggplant or Crushed Curry.

It was another fun colour combo to play with – I hope you play along too!
