Colour INKspiration #05

What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which has over 1000 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.

Well I think I might be a little different this week and post my special swaps that I am making for Onstage as they are these exact colours!
(I wasn't going to post the pic till after Onstage but they are the colours and I am pretty proud how they are working out!!)

So no stamping for me this week but paper bead rolling! I have been a super super busy woman making these, they are quite time consuming...

What do you think? If you are going to Perth be sure to come on over and swap with me!
(I have a feeling they will go fast!)

  • Card: Falling in Love DSP, Blushing Bride & Soft Sky cardstock
  • Tools: Handmade Bead roller, paper sealer and waterbased polyurethane varnish
  • Embelishments: Key ring, wire and assorted beads (non SU)

                1. I'm hoping to catch up with you in Perth Nicole, save me one please! Only trouble is, I haven't even thought about swaps yet....ha,ha. This is a super sweet example of the colours, well done.

                2. They will go fast for sure. Shame you aren't heading to Sydney ;) What a gorgeous swap using the colour palette. Love your paper beads.

                8. I am kicking myself I am going to Sydney now, I just love these beads & wish I was swapping with you. Nicole! I bet they were quite time consuming, but so worth the effort!

                9. Gorgeous! I so wish l was l was heading to Perth now..:0) Such a lovely project Nicole, these will be so, so popular. xx

                10. I LOVE your swap. Won't be there to swap with you. Darn it! My granddaughter would make me some if you'd tell me your directions? I just want one bead on each one to attach to my scissors. TFS

                11. What an amazing idea to use the DSP and this colour combination, I too am travelling from the Adelaide Hills to Perth for Onstage so hopefully we can catch up in person.
