… just sitting here – in monochrome – thinking of you!
Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 29and this week we have a gorgeous Pinterest inspired colour palette to work with courtesy of Bronwyn
Colour Palette: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Garden Green and Very Vanilla
The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Shirley Jones join us as a guest designer.
If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from my very talented friend – Jacque Williams. What a beautiful project – and a gorgeous wee subject!
Colour INKspiration Project CI29
It’s quite amazing how different a project can be – even when we have the same palette. My project is a monochromatic card – well almost!
I’ve made Very Vanilla the featured colour and done the stamping and most of the colouring in Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip.
Here are the steps:
Card Base – Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock – A4 cut in half lengthwise then scored and folded in half to make a landscape card with the fold on the left hand side.
Before stamping the image, wipe cardstock with your Embossing Buddy, ink the stamp first in Versamark, then in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. THEN stamp onto the Very Vanilla thick cardstock, sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder and heat emboss with the Heat Tool.
On the Big Shot, cut out the image Shot with the largest Layering Oval die.
Attach the image to the card front with dimensionals.
Inside of card – Colour only the part of the image you wish to stamp on the inside of the card using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker. Stamp onto card inside.
I chose the background stamp from By the Tide which was happily sitting in my stamp cupboard, and it wasn’t until writing up my post that I realised this set has retired.
I try not to use retired stamps in my posts – not because I don’t love them and use them in my own projects – but because if you don’t have it and you fall in love with that retired set, you may not be easily able to lay your hands on it! Somehow I’d missed this set in my last reshuffle and it hadn’t been transferred to my retired-but-love-it-so-much-I-can’t-part-with-it cupboard!
Here’s a redone version using the background stamp from Best Birds.
As in the original card- the background image is stamped in Crumb Cake. You can’t see too much of the stamp in this card – it’s just to add an e=lent of “texture”
If you’d like to see what that background stamp looks like copper embossed – check out this post – Copper Embossed Love & Sympathy Card – which I did for CASEing the Catty (CTC84) almost two years ago!
