Jar of Love Colour Challenge for Inspire.Create.Challenge. And its a Colour Challenge again!! I love these. And what a bright and zingy (there’s that word again) combination it is.
I wanted to pull an older stamp set out for this project. I know there are lots of lovely new goodies around,a nd more coming very soon, bt I wanted to show so love to some friends. With the colour such a fantastic colour scheme to work with, I decided to keep it simple and not introduce any other colours, not even black! Now this could have been a problem as I had decided to use vellum for the actual jar, but not so. Because Classic Ink takes a long time to dry on vellum, it meant I had time to throw some clear embossing powder over the ink while it was wet. Tick jar and tick sentiment!
I coloured the reverse of the vellum jar with the light Bermuda Bay Stampin Blends. This gave just the right look of water that I was after. I attached the sentiment to the jar with some linen thread (and a sneaky mini glue dot!), stamped some foliage and a couple of flowers and I was done. So often you can throw too much at one project, when all we need is some simplicity.
I know I am not alone in hoping that you will join the Challenge and see what YOU can make with this colour scheme. Just click on the link below for some more inspiration and to add your project. You have about two weeks to see what you can come up with, so why not give it a try?
