Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop - Colour Challenge

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am taking part in the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop and it's a Colour Challenge this time. We could use a minimum of three colours but I went for all five, I hope you like it. You may have joined me from Sue's blog or you may have just found me, whichever, welcome and thank you for popping in.  Let me show you how I made  my card.


1 piece of thick whisper white 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
3 pieces of whisper white 1 5/8" x 3 1/4", 1 piece 1/2" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of gorgeous grape card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Beautiful Friendship stamp set
Monogram Messages stamp set
Pretty peacock ink
Just jade ink
Gorgeous grape ink
Merry merlot ink
Melon mambo ink
Old World Paper 3D embossing folder
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


I wanted to try and use all of the colours so I chose a stamp set with several small elements and Beautiful Friendship is one of my favourites.  I stamped the largest flower first in gorgeous grape and then in melon mambo. Then I used a mask to cover these flowers while I stamped some of the buds in merry merlot and the leaves in just jade.  I then filled in the gaps with some melon mambo wisteria like sprays of tint flowers and stamped off the large hydrangea using pretty peacock just to fill in bits around the edges.  

I ran the piece of gorgeous grape card through the Cut and Emboss machine in the Old World Paper embossing folder and then adhered it to the card front.

Arrange the three strips of stamped images on the embossed layer using dimensionals.

I stamped on the strip with a sentiment from Monogram messages and used the tiny flower stamp in 4 of the 5 colours along the strip.
