Bright Floral Colour INKspiration #66

Hello and Welcome to our stunning colour challenge and Blog Hop!!

Our challenges are inspired by some amazing pictures from Pinterest and the colours from our Stampin' Up! collections.

This week, our colours are:  Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, Poppy Parade, Pineapple Punch, Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick - and we are challenged to use 3 or more colours!!

I've managed to use all these colours to make a bunch of thank you cards - whenever I need one, there isn't enough in my stash - so this week was the time to build up the collection!! 

I recently had a class using the gorgeous Lots of Happy card making kit, and so I was then inspired to use the kit in other ways!  

I've coloured the floral images in two ways - some with Stampin' Blends, and some with ink and the aquapainter - I wonder if you can discern the difference??

The backgrounds of all the cards were created using a smoosh of water and ink spread with the aquapainter onto Shimmery white card stock so that I could be quite liberal with the water. 

All of the greeting panels were stamped using the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and Lovely Lipstick ink.  

I have also coloured some of the vellum leaves using the Mint Macaron Stampin' Blend and left some  leaves white.  

Up next on our fabulous colour challenge this time is the lovely Rose who is always inspirational!!

We would really love you to join in this fun challenge with us too!  It runs for 3 weeks this time so you have plenty of time to add your amazing creations!!!  


  1. My first reaction. So Pretty

  2. The watercoloured backgrounds really lift the kit to a new level. Collectively, they look amazing!

  3. Honestly Julia these are stunning I can not pick a favourite - you have made me want to pull out my neglected kit and colour it the same way! Love it!
