Color INKspiration

I have recently joined a challenge group on Facebook--Colour INKspiration Challenge. It has been so much fun to be challenged by color combinations as I am creating cards.  As I was reviewing my blog, I just noticed that I have only been submitting my cards for that group on their Facebook page and have not shared them on this blog.  Well, I am about to remedy that.  There have only been two challenges so far, so I'll put them on this post and then create individual posts in the future.

CI02 was a challenge of lots of bright colors: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaroon, So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum, Tempting Turquoise, and Peekaboo Peach.  For this, the first challenge, we could pick any thee or more of the above colors.  I chose Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, and Peekaboo Peach.  I used the sketch from the Global Design Project of the week and tried to get this card finished in time to enter #GDP070 as well, but I missed the deadline for that challenge.  I did do a blog about this card and other baby cards inspired by that challenge.

CI03 was for the colors Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaroon, Whisper White, and Garden Green.  I did not have any Mint Macaroon so I was given permission to substitute Pear Pizazz.  I really struggled with this color challenge since I kept thinking it would be best used creating a beautiful, floral picture.  But, I did not have any stamps at that time that matched the picture in my head.  And, I only had ink in Garden Green and Whisper White anyway.  So, I did what I think we all do at least once in our card making lives and I turned to Pinterest for inspiration.  With the paper I had in the challenge colors and inspiration from Pinterest, here is the card I created.

Once the card was created, I knew it needed the frog "thinking of you" stamped on the inside, but it was in a box on its was from Stampin' Up so I just had to wait somewhat patiently until it arrived and I could finish the card.  I think it needed that frog on the inside to give it just the special touch it was missing.
