Colour Inspiration 16 – Night in Bethlehem

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to Colour Inspiration Challenge #16!  This go around we have a more muted, possibly masculine colour combination, which was perfect for a “to do” project I’ve had on my desk for months.



So my daughter asked me to make a “day planner cover” for her boyfriend some time ago . . . .

I wanted to make something a bit inspirational for him, and I felt the Night in Bethlehem set was pretty great to make something that is quite flat and easy to go in and out of a bag.

I used one of the samples right out of the catalogue as inspiration:


I added a bit of gold to the colour combination for the words. It also adds just a little bit of texture here, too.

Of course, make this into a card easy enough!  This is a great one if you have many Christmas cards to make, too.   You could add some glitter to the star (I used Wink of Stella) and add some pearls or rhinestones.   (Because this would be going to a teenaged boy, I opted for no rhinestones!)

And not in keeping with the colour challenge, here are the other day planner covers my daughter made for him:




Thanks for stopping by! And I hope you’ll join in the colour challenge on the Colour Inspiration Facebook Page!  Your next stop is the talented Lou Kitzelman!
