Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to the colour challenge of the INKspired Artist’s, our leader Teneale Williams called for colour suggestions to create challenges and I gave her Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, Merry Merlot and Basic Gray.

When this challenge rolled around I turned my nose up at the colours until I realised I gave these colours! 

They are very festive so I went with for a Christmas card.

I am loving the layering of Best Plaid Builder Dies

Now head over to Katrina Healy



Jar of Love

Welcome, happy to see you visit my site for this fortnights BlogHop with the InkSpired Artists.

This is the sketch below, that we have to use.


I choose to use the Jar of Love Bundle, had held two workshops with my partner in crime at the weekend and so whilst i was inking up the stamp i stamped an extra for myself.

Used a couple of embossing folders and brought out the old blends to color.

Popped an extra hand cut flower on the bunch, adds a bit of dimensional to the card.

Tasteful Touches

By Barabara Williams | Tasteful Touches Stampin' Up!


Welcome to our InkSpired Blog Hop, not sure if your starting here or have come from on of my team mates.

Colours are Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron and/or Soft Suede and the stamp set I choose was Tasteful Touches.

By Barabara Williams | Tasteful Touches Stampin' Up!

I stamped two of the flowers in Pretty Peacock, then coloured them in with the Mint Macaroon, the other one I just stamped in the Mint Macaroon, then my dear sweet little die cutting person used her scissors and expert cutting skills to cut them out……………I am just so lucky to have such a talented cutter…

I used the beautiful feather out of the set for the back ground and i also used the brick for some of the background.

InkSpired BlogHop 115

Hello and Welcome to the 115 BlogHop of the InkSpired Artists.  We have been given the Timeless Tulips to use, cannot wait to see what they all come up with.

I also used the Comfort and Hope stamp set for the greeting on the front and the inside.  I have been sending lots of cards of late.  Thought this was a handy one to have.

I stamped in black the tulips then took my alcohol markers to color the images.  This stamp is great to get good coloring as Stampin’ Up! have some distinctive stamps, of which the Tulip is one.

I used the punch that is available to punch out the flower and the leaves, after I had colored them.

I mixed some Shimmer Paint – Frost White with Isocol rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and just gave a slight stray over the cardbase.

You will that the black mat has texture on it, its a new embossing folder that your just going need to have.  Its called Tasteful Textiles 3D

Now your off to see what the fabulous Teneale has done for you.
