Colour Challenge#9

When I joined in on a Facebook Group called Colour INKspiration I thought it would help stretch my creativity a little. I am pleased to say I am enjoying each challenge and this one I particularly loved. The colours are Cherry Cobbler, Dapper Denim and Pool Party, all colours that I love and actually use quite a bit. However it was the photo that they put up for inspiration that had me hooked. I just loved the collage of images and colours so I decided to just recreate it with my Stampin' Up! products. I enjoyed making a collage in a frame last week for my great niece's first birthday, so decided  another frame was just the ticket. Oh and if you are looking back at past posts to find the other frame, no, I have not put it up yet as I wanted it to be a surprise. So stay tuned it is coming.

So what do you recon, isn't this the most inspiring  piece of art?
I was going to draw the lady myself but then decided to use the Beautuiful You lady and dress her in the challenge colours. Her dress was striped Dapper Denim and I coloured the white in with a Cherry Cobbler Write Marker. Her had is Cherry Cobbler with a fringe of Dapper Denim ribbon.

The top and bottom panel she is in has an old retired Build a Blossom stamp set stamped and punched out and then sponged.

The other panel I used the retired blossom punch for the red flower and the Fun Flower punch for the Pool Party one. The centre image was stamped  with Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim.

The big side panel was sponged, the trees were inked up on the woodland embossing folder and then fussy cut to go over the sponged base.

The whole lot was layered on to some very old retired DSP that I had wiped my Cherry Cobbler ink pad over and then wet a very wide paint brush and wiped it across the paper.

So there you have it my version for Colour INKspiration #9.

It is now in a black frame and my husband has taken it and put it on our TV display cabinet and wants it to stay. Isn't he the sweetest?
