HAPPY CELEBRATIONS FOR COLOUR INKSPIRATIONS CHALLENGE #30!

I had some time over Easter to have a go at the Colour Inkspirations challenge for this week.  Let me say these colours were hard!!!!

These are the colours for Colour Inkspirations #30.

What do you think of them?? What a combination!!

I will share the card I made.  I will say this is Take Two.  The first card was not good.  Can a card be ugly?  Yes … :/

I was happier with this one.

When I attempt a challenge like this I pull out all the ink pads to see how the colours look together and then go through my stamp sets to see what might work with the colours.  I had a few stamps out.  I made the first card and I wasn’t happy with it – at all! And no it won’t see the light of day.  Just let it be said that we can all do dud cards.

Any of the sets I had out didn’t appeal to me to try another one so I went through my stamps again and came across this set, Happy Celebrations.  I had forgotten about this set.  It was in my drawer with the “sentiment” stamps.  I have had this set for over a year I think and used one sentiment out of it.  I thought this might just work and it had 5 letters in “HAPPY” for the 5 colours. 🙂

The letters were coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers.  I even added a little sparkle with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.

The layout was based on Freshly Made Sketches #326.

If you get stuck how to put a card together following a card sketch is a great idea.  I have a board for Card Sketches on Pinterest -> HERE if you want to follow it.  If you missed yesterday’s post I gave some tips on following a sketch to make a card so head back to the previous post.

So how would you work these colours in a card??

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
