On the first of every month, we post an inspiration challenge here on our blog. Inspired fashion, trends, and a few inkpads, we build a collage to inspire you to create something during the month. This month’s challenge is all about a emotion and relaxation:
The soft lavendars and airy blues are contrasted by metallics and warm gold in this pretty yet powerful color inspiration collage. Let’s have a look at what our team created in response to this palette:
Sabrina Alery shares a gorgeous mixed media Valentine, with a full video tutorial over on her blog, The Honor Roll.
Vivian Keh uses Petal Points, iZinks, and SMOOCH Spritz to add an extra special touch to a handmade keepsake box.
Jennifer Priest shares how to create a foil design with a stencil on this “You’re Cool” card, fit for a guy:
Jennifer says,”You don’t need costly machines to do foiling. You can use Clearsnap’s Design Adhesives with Designer Foils for a foiled design. But I also found a way to use glue and a stencil to create a custom foiled design. You’re gonna be doing this on all of your cards once you see how easy it is!”
Steph Ackerman shares a fun number themed card, again using stencils but with ink!:
Steph says, “I needed a birthday card for my son who is turning 20 (ack!) so I instinctively grabbed ColorBox® Art Screens – Numeric and Jumbled. Art Screens are perfect for creating your own unique backgrounds. Wanting to stay within the blue family I chose ColorBox® Archival Dye Ink in Mist. Mist was the perfect color to create a truly masculine card.”
What did you think? Will you try these techniques and this fab color combo? We’d love to see what you create – just leave a link in the comments to your project, on your blog or on Pinterest for a chance to be featured on our Facebook Page!
