Inkspiration Colour Challenge #16

Happy Friday!!!! WOW is it just me or did this week absolutely FLY by... well ok... they all seem to be melding into ONE... well for me!!!!

This week Keesh has set us a Colour Challenge to work with... FUN!!! Now the colours that she has chosen are not generally colours I use... you know I tend to sway towards, PINK, Green and Choc Chip, oh and lets not forget KRAFT!! Well I can assure you there are absolutely NONE of those colours in this here card. I definately had fun with it though and am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Here is the colour combo for you to play along with:-

Everytime I see a colour challenge with Taken with Teal, I almost die... why?... well because I don't actually own any ink, markers etc in that colour, I actually think I only have ONE sheet of Taken with Teal cardstock.. hmmm perhaps I should get myself a little marker!!! What do you think?

I started out with a base of Pumpkin Pie then used the other colours in the layers... Taken with Teal for the scallop, Real Red and Whisper White. Now keeping in mind I DON'T have any Taken with Teal ink in my possession, I did have a minor panic attack as to how I was going to keep the whole thing balanced, but never fear that's where my handy VERSAMARK ink comes in... see I just need to use that and stamp it onto the coloured card... Voila... instant Taken with Teal pressie!!!! hahaha. I know, it's not really rocket science is it!!! hahaha

Oh the stamp set I used is Big Bold Birthday, and the card is going to be for my gorgeous Godson for his 6th Birthday next week... It's pretty safe to assume he wont be visiting this here blog!!! Oh and given I'm the GodMa... it's ok that I added some ribbon.. he won't mind... Right!!!
With the pressies, I added a little definition by using my White Gel pen then used some linen thread to "pressify" them!!! (hmmm not actually sure that, that is a word!!!)

Don't forget to pop on over and see what the other DT gals have come up with, I'm sure they are AMAZING!!!:-

Sarah-Jane, your card turned out beautiful! I really like the cute gifts with the linen thread bow and white accents! So cute!!!

You did a great job working around the fact you didn't have the Teal ink.

Have a great weekend!

This is just TOO cute, Sarah-Jane! You should be very proud of yourself, and yes, you should buy a Taken with Teal marker, at the very least!!
