Colour INKspiration is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the South Pacific, all through Australia and New Zealand. We love to get together for these colour challenges, to inspire each other, and you, to create. We love it when you join in with our challenges to share your work and all you need is a Facebook presence. You can link in here on Facebook.

This inspiration pic is really cool, with its painted boards on the floor, sparse decor and that fabulous map. I will need a card soon for one of my older sons. He is a builder, and his hobby is nurturing bonsai, so I gathered together a few stamp sets to make this retiform panel. I've used the tools from Guy Greetings before for a number of cards. I really do know a lot of plumbers and carpenters! I thought a brief repeat appearance wouldn't hurt.

Three stamps from In This World were included. There's a door, a portion of blue-print and a key. That key looks exactly like my mother's house keys!

For a couple of other sections, I used Lovely As A Tree. My class ladies are really keen to make a card similar to this using retiform, and a Totally Techniques class is on the books for September. There is one pencilled in for September 8th at 7pm, and another a week later on 15th September at 7pm also. We love new people joining us for class, why don't you get in touch?

I think you'll see some amazing projects made with these colours. Now you are heading to Denita

Happy crafting,
