Colous Inkspiration #45 2017-2019 in Color

Hi all! Greetings from North Carolina! We have had a beautiful sunny weekend. North Carolina's version of Indian Summer. After a fun weekend camping in our RV, I wanted to put together my card for the current Colour Inkspiration Challenge.

I wanted to post the group description of this fun Facebook Group:

"This group is for Stampin' Up! ® enthusiasts who love to share their paper craft projects using the Pinterest inspired colour combinations provided.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT) a new colour swatch is uploaded to this Facebook Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew (consisting of 25 Aussie and NZ demos) will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop."
Challenge #45 uses the following colors from the 2017-2019 In Color set:
I watercolored the background with all five of the colors. The picture below shows how I tape the watercolor paper to an acrylic sheet. I knew I wanted a base and also paper colored to use with die cuts. A drop or two of the reinker color was dropped into the corresponding ink pad. I also create a test strip on watercolor paper before beginning to see how the colors work when wet.
Once the paper dried, I cut out the paper shown on the right into various bits and pieces with the Flourish Thinlits and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. Wasn't clear yet which pieces I would use.

Played with the layout and decided I like the 3 florals die cuts on the card. Embossed the sentiment with gold embossing power and added some gold glimmer paper touches. Hope you enjoy!

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop November 2018

Hi all! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Nov. 2018 Blog Hop for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This is an international Facebook group led by vivacious Kylie Bertucci from Australia. This particular hop has no theme so there should be an amazing variety of projects!

The cards I made were based on the Facebook Group,Colour Inkspiration challenge #44.
A Colour Inkspiration design team member chooses a Pinterest picture and the related colors for the challenge. For #44 - five colors were allowed: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz.
Before I started the card, I painted a test strip to see how the colors would work on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper. I knew Birthday Posies would be prefect for these colors.

Next, I stamped with Versamark the main designs and the small coordinating stamps. After sprinkling with white embossing powder, I heat-set the designs. Finally, I used Stampin' Up! re-inkers as watercolor paint and colored in the designs with a small Silver watercolor brush. I always seem to end up with lots of bits and pieces from trial and error!

Thanks for visiting my blog and please continue along with the hop to see all the amazing work from demonstrators all over the world!
