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.
