All Around Wreath for Inspire Create Challenges. I can hardly believe another fortnight has passed already, but it has! So we have another Inspire.Create.Challenge and this time it is a Colour Challenge. To be honest, I really struggled with this challenge, the colours just didn’t seem to sit well together for me. But I am always up for a challenge, so I kept at it. The final idea came to me one night when I was trying to get to sleep.
Now you could say that it is a bit of a cheat, but the Challenge was simply to include all the colours in your project, and I have. I accept that Night of Navy and Lovely Lipstick only make a small appearance, but they are there!
I really like the effect of layering the Old Olive foil and vellum. Having the foil behind the vellum really softens it down, but equally, having that small amount of foil showing through adds to the final project.
The All Around Wreath dies are Bundled with the Tidings All Around Stamps (so saves 10% on the total price!), but I chose to use a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set, Seasonal Wreaths. Adding this set really stretches the other two items, and I love being able to use 2 stamp sets with one set of dies.
As I said, I had a real battle with this challenge, but with the aid of a few sneaky gems, I did meet the brief. Are you up for the Challenge? I am sure once you have looked at the other projects you will have lots of great inspiration and won’t have the struggle I did. Simply click on the Challenge image at the top of the post and you will go to the main Challenge Website. Take a look at the inspiration and then have a go.
