Happy for You – Colour INKspiration 11

Hello it’s Fi from the Magenta Tiger,

If I asked you to make a card using the following colours what would you do?

Happy for You! – Colour INKspiration 11

It has taken me the full two weeks of the Colour INKspiration Challenge to come up with my card. So much thinking, my head hurts!

Here is my card:

The ‘In the City’ Hostess Stamp Set has been very cleverly designed.  Each building/object has an outline stamp and a matching filling stamp. You can stamp colour into each object instead colouring. I have watercolored the sky in Marina Mist and the road in Sahara Sand to add a little more depth to the picture.

Eastern Palace – Note Cards

Hello from Fiona at the Magenta Tiger,

I was recently asked to make a couple of Note cards for a friend to be used for any occasions. I was inspired by a cute little square card on page 18 of the new Stamping’ Up! Annual Catalogue from the Eastern Palace Suite. 

  I created three gorgeous little note cards using one sheet of Shimmery White card stock. The colours I chose for these cards are three of the new In Colors.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these cute little note cards.
