COLOUR INKSPIRATIONS #CI25

The Colour Inkspirations Challenges are back for 2018.  I am excited about that.  I really enjoyed taking part last year so I am ready again.

This week’s Challenge #CI25 is with the colours Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.  I do like blue and lime together.  I have to say I was a little intimidated.  I have been watching the cards entered for the challenge over on the Facebook group HERE and thought, should I really bother??  There are some AMAZING creations! But it’s about challenging yourself so I did have a go.  SO … here is my card.

I have used the Epic Celebrations set from Sale-A-Bration.  I was inspired to colour the sneakers a bit like this from a card on Pinterest but then I couldn’t go back and find the card when I went to check it.  Maybe it was on a Facebook group I am on??? The layout for the card was from the Freshly Made Sketches #311.  As you can see from the sketch below I flipped the sketch on it’s side.  You can do that with sketches.  It doesn’t have to be exactly the same.

The Designer Series paper is from the Bubbles and Fizz pack from Sale-A-Bration.

The sneakers are coloured with the inkpads and Aquapainter on Thick Whisper White.  When it was dry I went over it with the Night of Navy marker.

The sentiment is stamped on Lemon Lime Twist and cut with the 1 1/4″ circle Punch.  This was layered on a Silver Foil circle punched with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.  This was then layered on to a scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circle Thinlits.  I added some Silver Thread under the sentiment pice.

What’s that zig-zag edge from?  The card needed something in Night of Navy under the piece but I wasn’t sure what to use.  I had just used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and saw the Zig-Zag edge on the bag Framelit.  So I took a small strip of Night of Navy and cut a piece out with that.  The star is from one of the other die pieces in that Thinlits set.  I raised that up off the card and added an adhesive Rhinestone to the centre.

I was happy with the end result but certainly not as amazing as many of the other projects.

I hope you like it anyway and it might inspire you. 🙂
