Colour INKspiration Colour Challenges

Welcome to my blog. It’s the last Colour INKspiration challenge for 2020 and I am very honoured to be participating as a Design Team Member! We are up to Challenge #91 … and what a stunning inspiration pic to be working with. We also welcome the amazing Rochelle Blok as our guest designer for this challenge!

Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, Magenta Madness, Gorgeous Grape … and Glitter.

The idea being to choose at least 3 of these fabulous colours … but Cheryll being Cheryll … I used all six … and a lot of shimmer instead of glitter!!

Dandy Wishes Dies for Colour Inkspirations

Colour, colour everywhere … created by spritzing colour onto Shimmery White Cardstock panels. To create the spritzers, I mixed up ink refills in all the above colours with Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl) in the Mini Misters.
Then I got out my big “spritzing” cardboard box and spritzed up three panels. Mango Melody, Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grape were spritzed onto one panel. Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock onto another, and then Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay were spritzed onto a third panel of cardstock.

Dandy Wishes Dies

Creating a stencil with Dandy Wishes dies …

When I spritzed the green colour panel, I started with a stencil created by die cutting the strappy looking leaves in a line from some coated cardboard (the backing card from Designer Series Paper is perfect for this). I placed the home made stencil over the Shimmery White cardstock and spritzed with Pretty Peacock to from a row of “grassy stuff” across the bottom of the panel. After removing the stencil, I then spritzed with Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay.

I then die cut the stylised dandelion dies from the Dandy Wishes Dies from different parts of the warm coloured panel so I have one flower in each of the shades (Mango Melody, Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grape). I die cut more of the strappy leaves and some of the Dandelion leaves from the Pretty Peacock/Bermuda Bay spritzed cardstock. They have been adhered to the green spritzed panel.

Apply shimmery splatter to everything on your craft table and for sure some will end up on your project …..

I mixed up some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with a little bit of rubbing alcohol and a drop of Granny Apple Green ink refill. Then I picked up a big bit of shimmer with a paint brush and splattered …. everywhere. Should have used my spritzing box!!! But WOW … I can’t explain the level of shimmer!

The sentiment is from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set, which are bundled with the Dandy Wishes Dies. This bundle will be available on 5th January, when the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalogue goes live.

I had a bit of shimmery liquid left over, so used it to colour up some of the White Crinkled Seam Binding … and once it was dried, wrapped it around my card front. Added some 2020-2022 In Colour Enamel Dots in Magenta Madness. Perfect!!

I will be creating this card live tonight on my weekly Whimsy Wednesday Creative Live in my Stampin’ Up! group – time is 8:00pm South Australia time, 8:30pm Daylight Savings Time and 7:30pm Queensland time. For a list of times around the world, head on over to the event here.
