This week over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge we have a Colour Challenge!
And our challenge is to use some or all of the 2016 - 2018 In Colours.
You can see what the rest of the Design Team came up with and all the other entries over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge HERE. Do play along with us, you don't have to have a blog and it's great fun.
I wanted to see if I could use all of the colours together for my card and I thought the Crafting Forever stamp set would be perfect for this.
To get the "splatter"background I did just that. I used an aqua painter which is essentially a water filled brush, dipped it in the inks from the ink pads and splattered it onto the whisper white card stock.
I also added some more splats using a stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set which has lots of useful background stamps.
I have stamped the bottom half of the stamp which has the pot image onto the Dapper Denim Colour Theory Designer Series Paper. I love this crackle glaze effect on the DSP. Perfect for pots!
I"m not sure if you can see in the pic but after I had coloured the brushes in, using Stampin Write Markers in the same In Colours, I went over them with the Fine Tipped Glue Pen and let it dry. It gives gloss to the paint brushes and adds an extra dimension. My pot is cut out, slightly curved and raised with Dimensionals to make it slightly 3D.
I have used some more of the DSP to stamp the "Crafting Forever! Housework Whenever" and cut it out using one of the Stitched Shape Framelits in a square. I have embossed the sentiment using versamark and white embossing. I did try stamping it using white ink but it is much more effective when embossed. I have added some Bakers Twine in Whisper White and Dapper Denim and a few Enamel Shimmer Dots in Dapper Denim to finish it off.
I have loved these In Colours. Sadly we will be waving goodbye to these ones shortly.
Did you have a favourite? They are now on our Retiring List. Which means they are only available whilst stocks last. That also goes for the reinkers - I would encourage you to get these whilst you can. They refill your ink pads and make sure you ink pads go on for years! The card stock, ribbons and DSP are also on the list. Once they are sold out, they will not be available to purchase.
but will be welcoming in some fabulous new colours for 2018 - 2020! -Would you like a sneak peek !!!
These one's on the left are our brand new up and coming colours this summer! Aren't they gorgeous!! They will be available with the new Catalogue launch in June unless you are a demonstrator, in which case you can pre order them now!
I really hope you like my card. I think it would be great to send to a crafty friend. I might make them as my customer thank you 's this month. The splattering is fun and I know quite a few feel the same as me, that Crafting is way more fun than housework!
