Coastal Inspiration for Colour INKspiration #50

Hello and Welcome to a fun challenge from Colour INKspiration.

We are being inspired by this amazing coastal photograph this time.

What a beautiful bunch of colours we have to challenge you - they are:  Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana.

I've used these gorgeous colours with the Beauty Abounds stamp set - this was actually a class card we did recently learning about collage stamping - and this stamp set is perfect for layering!!

Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle

The Beauty Abounds stamp set coordinates with the fabulous Butterfly Beauty Thinlits and these can be bought in a bundle for a 10% discount!!  Soooo pretty.

I love these bokeh dot stamps - they make a gorgeous background, and create a great cohesive element for the central banner of the card.  

I've coloured the floral swag using Bermuda Bay and Sahara Sand markers in the Blueberry Bushel outline image.

The Coastal Cabana has been used to stamp the lovely butterflies and greeting.  

Make sure you keep hopping around the whole design team - there is some fantastic work showcasing this fun colour combination!!  Up next is the lovely Nicole and her clever lighthouse!!

And please join in the fun with us by creating your project featuring these colours and add it to our facebook challenge page.  

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia  x
