Autumn for Colour INKspiration #36

Hello and Welcome to a brilliant blog hop for colour INKspiration.

Our colour challenge this week is to use Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Basic Gray and Silver Foil.

I think these colours totally match our weather at the moment here in Queensland!  They are quite Autumnal, and the photos really have a lovely rustic feeling about them.  

This is my husband's birthday card which is coincidentally today!  

I've used the lovely Rooted In Nature suite which includes a couple of really awesome embossing leaves that you can see I've used on the Silver Foil.

My background panel was created using the super sparkly Shimmery White Embossing Paste and the brick wall Pattern Party Decorative Mask.  I then threw some yellow Brusho over the paste while it was still wet, and spritzed a bit of water to add more intensity of colour.  I've tried to capture the super sparkliness but it's a bit tricky to try and photograph!!

You will to be totally blown away by the amazing projects from the whole design team with these colours, so make sure you keep hopping all the way around!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

  3. WOW Julia I totally adore your card this week, all those elements and textures! I struggle sometimes to get the right balance with this sort of thing and you have nailed it perfectly.

  4. Gorjusssssss! I adore texture Julia and this card has loads of it. Akll the lovely details ... the falling autumn leaves, the pearls.... everything! I love it!

  5. Wow!! Julia, I love all the textured bricks and the cluster of elements. What a beautiful card. You made that colour palette look easy.
