I have a very exciting post today. I've been invited to join a colour challenge blog hop and I'm so excited! The We Fall In...Colours team are an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who share their creative makes following a colour theme each month. If you've come from Samira's awesome make you're on the right track.
The colour challenge for this month is Granny Apple Green, Blueberry Bushel and Rococo Rose which are some of my favourites.
This colour palette lends itself to floral projects but I wanted to push myself so I've made a home decor project using ink blending through a mask. I also put my Cricut electric cutting machine to work with some adhesive vinyl for the sentiment.
It was pretty hard to capture this project in a photograph due to either too much light or not enough. I hope you can see how the sentiment sits on the glass raised above the inked image within the shadow box.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 6.5" square. I attached the mandala stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks pack using low tack tape. I applied the three inks - Granny Apple Green, Blueberry Bushel and Rococo Rose with Stampin' Sponges making sure to overlap the colours. I trimmed the cardstock so that it would fit inside the shadow box and layered a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock behind for some added rigidity.
I took inspiration from the Crafting Forever stamp set for the sentiment and made my own version in Cricut Design Space. I cut it out with silver adhesive vinyl which shows up much better in real life.
