Colour INKspiration #22 & #23

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Colour INKspiration Blog Hop #22 and #23. You are visiting Jackie. If you are following the blog hop you would have arrived here from fellow West Australian, the super creative, Nicole Wilson. Wasn't her framed art absolutely beautiful!  Joining us for this Blog Hop is guest designer Libby Dyson.

The Colour INKspiration Team have two stunning challenges to play along with this fortnight. Both are stunning inspiration pictures with a gorgeous collection of colours. You can choose to play along with just one or both challenges.
Here is my card for this yummy collection of colours. I adore this picture and the colours,  Christmassy with a lovely seaside theme. However, as you can see I didn't take any of those directions with creation. I wanted a CAS card with a slight Scandi feel. I adore this elongated style of card at the moment, and tend to make one in this size more frequently than not.

Card Base is Sahara Sand. Matt layers are Pear Pizzaz. The Whisper White back ground was stamped with the Post Script background stamp (stamped off as full strength was just too harsh). The deer from Merry Patterns was also stamped in Soft Suede and cut using the Stitched layers Thinlits. Marina Mist ink was used to stamp the flowers from Hello Friend stamp set and the sentiment from Colour Me Happy.

The second fabulous colour inspiration is a lovely rustic colour theme for Christmas. Such a classic and timeless colour palette for the Festive Season. I may have to adopt this for next years decorations.

Again, I didn't make a Christmas card lol I just wasn't feeling florally or santa-ish in the craft room during this creative session, so went with another simple card that would help me chew through my ever growing stash of DSP.

The card base is Crumb cake with a layer of whisper white and then Real Red card. Next, a layer of the funky black and white tartan looking check from the Merry Little Christmas DSP. A Silver Foil card banner was tucked underneath the Whisper White and Crumb Cake Stitched circle elements.
I have used the lanterns image from the Colour Me Happy stamp set and coloured with a Real Red Marker. The sentiment (one of my favourites at the moment) was inked in black Momento and adhered with mini dimensionals.
