A trio of Colours and Creations.

When I was just signing in to do this post, I read that this is post #301. Wow, how cool!

Every week, I get the Splitcoast Weekly Inkling in my email Inbox. It's a newletter full of inspiration - tutorials, colours challenges, sketch challenges etc. I always look over to the colour challenges to see what colours they have come up with. This weeks looked very interesting: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron. These are colours I would never think to put together, I thought I would see what I could come up with.

First up I've made a card using Friends 24/7 stamp set. As you know, I'm really loving this set at the moment. I've used the wheel on the piece of scallop edges blue cardstock. Then I've inked up the flourish image in So Saffron and rolled into the blue ink. Then with my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I've lined up the image and stamped over the top in Versamark, then clear embossed. I think the photo just picks up a little bit of the shine. I've finished off the card with some blue striped ribbon and three half pearls.
Just when I was photographing this card to blog, I noticed a mistake. But it was a bit late for me to fix up - can you see what it is??

Next up I've made this very cute 3x3 note card tote, which is the tutorial on this weeks Inkling. You can find this tutorial here. It's super cute and super easy. I've also made three small note cards to go along with this little tote.

The three cards are all very similar in design, just using the three colours. I've used watercolour paper, inked up the image and gently sprayed with water, then stamped onto the watercolour paper. In the photo below, you can see the watercolour effect!

And last but certainly not least, I've made up this 8x8 scrapbook page of Caden at the beach. This was his first time having a play in the sand. I just love that expression on his face.
It's a very simple layout. On the piece of blue cardstock, I've used the Sanded background stamp. And for the title, Enjoy Every Moment stamp set.

I had so much fun creating this trio - hope you enjoy them to.
