Colour INKspiration #14

 Colour INKspiration

Hey there! It's time for a brand new Colour INKspiration challenge.   

Colour INKspiration Crew consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
There’s also a Facebook group for Stampin' Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.
Here’s the deal - 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. 
Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration 'Challenge' by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to.
Make sure you click on the Colour Inkspiration banner above and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.

I had some inky fun with this group of colours and created a universe/galaxy effect for a fun birthday card.
Using Watercolour paper and the above inkpads, l used a sponge to randomly apply them. Once l was happy with those, l flicked some water over the whole thing to create some speckled light patches and also used some watered down white craft ink to splatter.
Once it was all dry l added lots of fine Dazzling detail spots to add a glittery effect.

If you are following the hop you would have arrived here from the lovely Rachel Palmieri and her super cute project.  Next on the hop is the talented and lovely Liz Gross.
