Colour INKspiration Colour Challenges

Welcome to my blog. It’s Colour INKspiration challenge CI#99 and the inspiration pic for this challenge is classicly elegant.

Very Versailles plus Mint Macaron, Just Jade, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede

Once again, I have not only used the colours from the inspiration image, but the image itself to influence my creation for this challenge.

Very Versailles for Colour Inkspiration
  • The background is created with a curved edge cut from cardstock and used as a stencil. I have sponged Smoky Slate ink over the edge of the curve to create the wonky stripes.
  • The hanging leaves are stamped with Just Jade and Mint Macaron inks. I used the Stamparatus so I could stamp over the top with Versamark and then clear emboss. This intensifies the colour somewhat.
  • I have added a touch of gold with the same leaves stamped with Heat and Stick powder and then gold leafing applied.
  • A few of the collage type elements from the stamp set in Soft Suede and Smoky Slate complete the arrangement.

  • Oh, my! The curtain fall background is just beautiful Cheryll. And the leaves both accented with the Clear embossing and Gold Leafing, are just stunning. I absolutely love your creativity and your elegant card. D x

    • Oh thank you Denita! “Curtain fall background” … I am glad it has such a lovely name now, rather than “wonky stripes”. lol

  • Now Cheryll! This is amazing. I had to look twice at your (so called) wonky stripes. That sponging is fab and really sets off this card. You slayed it yet again. x

  • Of course I LOVE this: one of my favourite sets with some of my favourite techniques in a gorgeous colour palette! As marvellous as always, Cheryll!
