Colour INKspiration #30

Good Day Crafty Friends

Hope you are having a fantastic day. Welcome to the Colour INKspiration Blog Hop #30. You are visiting Jackie Aitken in Western Australia.  You may have arrived here from the super talented Elizabeth Goss. Be sure to hop all the way through for some amazing inspiration created using this fortnight's colour combination.

When I first saw this combination I was stumped, mainly because I don't use red or orange tones often. I put the challenge sheet away for a week and revisited it when I was feeling creative.

The following day I ended up making eight pocket cards, and decided to decorate one with the challenge colours for this fortnights challenge.

The card base, inserts and belly bands are all super easy components to create. The Envelope Punch Board allows me to whip these up in no time.

To decorate the Front, Pool Party Card has been die cut using the largest circle in the Layering Circle Framelits, and the largest rectangular

The small flower stamp in the Petal Palette stamp set has been inked Cherry Cobbler (stamped off) Pumpkin Pie (stamped off), Island Indigo and Fresh Fig (stamped off)

A strip of Black card was attached to the Belly Band and a smaller strip of Pool Party and Island Indigo. The bird image was inked Archival black and die cut.

To finish the card, I added a Pool Party tab to the card insert, made using the Circle Tab Punch.
