INKSPIRATIONS COLOUR CHALLENGE #12




Good evening!
It was lovely to take a break last week from  Makeesha's challenge, but boy I was ready to get back into this week!
I have used the stamp set "Boatloads of love" because this colour combo screamed fun! hehe
I used some small retired Real Red buttons that I had collecting dust, the DSP is from the packs "Windsor Knot" and "Walk in the Park".
I paper pieced different DSP on the boat which can be a little different than colouring, plus I sometimes reckon its a lot faster.
My husband got given some rugby tickets to go see a game tonight with a friend so I have some girls coming around tonight!! whoop whoop bring on the weekend.
Go check out Makeesha's blog here and meet our new design team member's and share some comment love, and here is the design team entries as follows.
Have a good one,
Amy

So clever Amy. Love how you have stamped on the DSP ... and I was a little apprehensive about these colours ... but you make it look so easy! xx

That is the sweetest card, best I've ever seen using that stamp set. haven't checked out the challenge yet, was on an overnight camp for friend's 40th, wild thunderstorm in the middle of the night & everything.

Ta for comment on my niece's card. I used the retired Whimsy numbers. I have the matching alphabet too, shame it was retired, I really like it. They need more number stamps really.
Have a great 'rest of the weekend'
love Fi xox

You always make this stamp set look so goog, but every time I look at it in the catalogue I'm not inspired...they really need your cards made with this stamp set in the catalogue. Very very nice, love the stamped image on the DSP, I've been doing a bit of that myself.

What an unusual interpretation - not at all what I expected from these colours, but it is a fantastic card - I love the little boat, and how you have made me think more outside the square when i look at these challenges. Thanks for this, jo
