Welcome to another Colour Inspiration Colour Challenge!  You are now visiting Jacque Williams in New Zealand.  This fortnight we have #11 – a yummy mix of Soft Suede, Marina Mist, and Early Espresso.

Please join us over the next two weeks uploading your own projects in the above colours (plus black, white, vanilla or any metallics) by joining us on the Colour Inkspiration Challenge Page.  It’s also quite fun to see what others create!

I chose to use one of the new host sets, Background Bits.  I just love the versatile and vintage feel to this set:

The main image is heat embossed in Clear Embossing Powder and then inked over the top in all three of the challenge colours.  I used a circle out of scrap cardstock to mask off the moon image while sponging, too.

This is such an easy to way to create a wow background!

I also used the script stamp in the set to do a little bit more stamping onto the background.

Finish off with a bit of glitter. And just a bit in keeping with the vintage style!

 

Background Bits is a host set, meaning you can receive it free when you host a Stampin’ Up! workshop OR when you/you and some friends place an order of $300 or more.  It’s a truly gorgeous set!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know you’ll enjoy the rest of the hop.  You’ll be visiting the talented Lou Kitzelman next!

If you live in New Zealand and don’t have a demonstrator, I’d love to be yours!   I’m having a Free Open House for the new catalogue 17 June 10-1pm.   Come along and make some projects, take photos of new displays, and have a cuppa!   Feel free to bring a friend, too.   Free gift for the first five registrants.  Register HERE.
