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??
