Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #25 - A Colour Challenge

This fortnight's challenge on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges to use 3 colours all from the same colour family. If you haven't used Stampin' Up colour before there are currently 48 colours divided into 4 colour families, each with their own name - Bold Brights, Soft Subtles, Rich Regals and Earth Elements. The colours in each family are designed to coordinate and complement with each other.

I chose 3 colours from the Rich Regals family - Regal Rose, Rose Red and Bravo Burgundy. Now I'm not a great lover of Bravo Burgundy on its own, but when teamed up with a pink, it's a lovely dark complimentary colour.

The side twist was to use checks or gingham which I completely forgot about and only remembered once I'd finished the entire card, so apologies for that, but nevermind huh?

I also used the sketch from the Stamp With Us challenge as well.


I made faux brads for the corners using my Crop-a-dile to punch out some small circles, glued them on and then added a layer of Crystal Effects to give them a glazed, raised look. I might go back and add some more to the centre of the flowers too.

Recipe:

Stamps: A Beautiful Thing, It's Beautiful wheel

Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla

Inks: Bravo Burgundy, Rose Red, Regal Rose

Accessories: Bravo Burgundy grosgrain ribbon, Crop-a-dile (to punch the little circles as SU don't have Bravo Burgundy brads), Crystal Effects

So why not give the challenge a go and don't forget to leave us a link in the inlinkz box. Which colour family will you choose?
