Colour INKspiration Challenge #30 Blog Hop



I'm not sure what it happening but somehow the weeks just seem to be rolling around too quickly! It is time for another Colour INKspiration challenge. We love seeing all of your creative entries. As usual we are kicking the challenge off with a blog hop. You'll see so many ideas using these 5 colours.

I was doing some serious multi-tasking with this card and I was a bit chuffed with how it turned out.


I wanted to use some of my Sale-a-bration products - you have until the end of March to take advantage of  this great promotion - to make a card for my nephew.


I have used Bronwyn Eastley's tutorial called A Little Wild, Double Pop-up, Gate Fold, Box Card to make this. Bronwyn's is made using the A Little Wild bundle. All I did was change the colours and and theme. It is a fabulous 3D fold that has a lot of depth. I haven't added a lot of elements as the Foil Frenzy DSP is quite LOUD and out there. I've added images from the Epic Celebrations stamp set and the Celebrate You thinlits (both free with qualifying orders until the end of March). I love the headphones hanging off the 'e' and the streamers behind. 


The back has room to write a message on and because this Foil Frenzy DSP is double sided you get to see the other pattern on the back. This card folds flat to fit into an envelope but unfortunately I sealed and sent this card before I realised that I hadn't taken a pic to show you. Oops!


I have stamped the images onto Crumb Cake cardstock and used white watercolour pencil and markers to colour in. I didn't add any water to the white to keep the depth of colour.

Just Add Ink #401 - Just Add a sketch



I love sketch challenges. They are perfect for sparking your creative juices when you need a bit of inspiration. Check out the sketch we have for our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.
Sale-a-bration has only one week left so I thought it only fitting to showcase a few of the fabulous things you can earn for free - Tutti Frutti Cards and envelopes and Epic Celebrations stamp set.


I have used the Upright Z fold card - perfect for showing off the fabulous pattern on the card base. You can see some others I have made and find out how to make your own here. It's a great fold because it easily stands up for display.


Inside has room for a message. I love the images in the Epic Celebrations stamp set. Perfect for the cool teenager!


I love this free card and envelope pack too. The matching envelope deserved some love too.


To add a bit of interest to the card front I have added some skewwiff embossing. I simply embossed one corner using the Simple Stripes embossing folder, then embossed the next corner. Adds a bit of fun don't you think?


Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members used this sketch. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!
