Time for another Colour INKspiration challenge and as always we are kicking it off with a blog hop. Whether you have hopped over from Kim, or are starting with me, you are sure to get lots of INKspiration. The challenge this week has 8 colours in it and you have to use a minimum of 4.
I couldn't help myself - I just had to use all 8!
I hadn't originally intended to use all 8 colours. I started as I normally do when I am unsure what I will make for a challenge - generally phaffing about by getting all of the colours out and playing around with combinations and proportions. With a few strips of cardstock a card was born!
I always keep my offcuts in my cardstock packs. You just never know when they will come in handy! For a card like this you can use any width of strip that you like. I played around with proportion until I was happy. I can see me recreating this with other combinations. In a way it is like creating your own Designer Series Paper for the background.
Because the background was a bit busy I decided to keep the sentiment panel really simple. The Lovely Inside and Out bundle was perfect for this.
A few left over strips added a nice detail for the card inside.
I can't wait to see what you come up with. Remember to use at least 4 of the colours.
