colour INKspiration #99 Quiet Meadow & Turtle Friends

Hello and Welcome to another gorgeous colour combination with Colour INKspiration challenges.

We have a fortnightly challenge focusing on colours inspired by Pinterest.

This time the colours are:  Mint Macaron, Just Jade, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede.  

I ended up creating two cards for this challenge - any excuse to try new stamp sets!!  My first card is a diorama and features Turtle Friends and the Layering Diorama Dies.  

I've coloured the little turtle using Mint Macaron and Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.  

The coordinating Turtle Punch works a treat with this super cute little guy. 

My second card is really my favourite style of shabby vintage and features the gorgeous Quiet Meadow stamp set and coordinating Meadow dies.  

I've sponged over the collage stamping with Soft Suede using a blending brush.  My card also features ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon pack, linen thread, and some Mint Macaron Genial Gems.

The inside of the card is very similar to the front with an offcentre Mint Macaron card behind the collage stamping.  

My projects are very different - it's really amazing the inspiration that comes from using different colours together!!  

You can see lots of amazing projects featuring these colours at our Facebook challenge page.

  1. Two great projects Julia ... I must admit I LOVE the vintage foliage card. But that turtle shell is amazing, and good to see the diorama dies in action. xxx
