Colour INKspiration Challenge #32 Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Colour INKspiration challenge. I have been waiting for this one to come around. Elegant and striking colour palette for you for this challenge.

I made my project for this challenge what seems like ages ago. These were the gifts I made for team mates for our recent Stampin' Up! event called OnStage. It is always a great weekend - getting to catch up with good friends and see all the latest products and techniques - what could be better! In my mind I was making brooches using the the Apron of Love bundle and shrink plastic. Unfortunately I left it to the last minute and my brooch backs were way too large. Hmmmmm ...... what to do???? Can you work out what I attached the shrinky dink apron too?

A gold binder clip! The top loop handle thingy was perfect for the apron neck strap. Talk about meant to be!

I made a card using the same thinlits and attached the clip to the pocket.

I love how delicate the pocket detail and stamping looks once you shrink it. I coloured the pocket in the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends after it was shrunk. Despite this being all a bit last minute I was quite chuffed with my effort.
