Colour INKspiration #62

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge #62. The talented Design Team have the most delightful Inspiration Picture and Colour Combination for you to play along with this fortnight. Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry and Call Me Clover.

I recently discovered a few packs of Shimmery White Card Stock in a spot I used to keep all my Card Stock and DSP together, so I have been on a water colouring frenzy of late, creating loads of backgrounds in all sorts of different colours. I cut half a pack into card fronts and managed to splash ink on all of them. I am generally a lazy stamper so for me to have a stash of water coloured card fronts will make life easier going forward. 

For today's creation, I applied Crushed Curry ink to slightly wet Shimmery White card stock using an Aqua Painter. I am impatient and used the heat tool to dry it so I could add some splatters while I had the Crushed Curry Ink out on my crafting space.

The images have been stamped with Black Archival Ink and once dry, Crushed Curry and Call Me Clover inks were used to colour them. These were then fussy cut and added to the Crumb Cake die cut heart with dimensionals.  The die cut heart has been sponged with White Kraft ink for a softer look. Also added and possibly not visible, is a die cut piece of vellum which sits under the bottom floral cluster and sentiment.

A Linen Thread bow and Mini Library Clip were added to the left top corner and to finish the card a few Artisan Pearl Embellishments.

  1. Oh, Jackie! SO lovely. I love your style and I'm always amazed because you do things with products that I never even think of doing. Isn't it amazing how one set of colours or one set of stamps can lead so many different places.

  2. This is so lovely!! I like the yellow behind the heart and your use of the flowers. AMAZING design!
