I am just under the wire for the Colour INKspiration #60 challenge! It often catches me because the deadlines are in Australian Eastern Standard Time Zone, and that means it’s a day ahead because of the International Dateline. I should know better – my daughter lives north of Sydney – but even when I do the math correctly I’m often under the wire. But here’s my contribution:
- Stamps: Vibrant Vases, Crackle Paint, Beautiful Bouquet
- Colour Palette: CI#60 Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Blueberry Bushel; also Gold and Whisper White
- Accessories: Stampin’ Write markers, Aqua painter, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stitched Rectangle dies, Metallic Pearls, Gold thread (retired)
This is the inspiration image for CI#60. I’ll tell you, these colours are a bit of a challenge to put together! Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink are made for one another, but those other two, well, it was a stretch. This project sat on my craft desk for a few days in pieces.
When I got the idea for the classic Blue-And-White for the vases, things started to come together. I used both Stampin’ Write markers and the Aqua Painter to get shading on the blooms, and used the Aqua Painter for the vases. I intended for it to have that slightly uneven, outside-the-lines look that old china pottery has.
If you’ve never tried a Colour Inkspiration challenge, I highly recommend it! You’ll love the projects that have been submitted for CI#60.
