CK #148

Jul 27, 2023


Another CK challenge and this time I had a REAL challenge on my hands!!

This CK #148 combined my least favorite colour -Cajun Craze.

Do you like this colour?

I don’t -BUT I wasn’t going to let my dislike of the colour stop me from the challenge.

So, I took 3 attempts at various different looks to get the card looking right.

And I eventually settled on this design.

And the technique behind the success was using daubers.

I love how using daubers just softens really “harsh” colours.

Well -I find Cajun Craze a little harsh.

It’s not pink or purple -so it will feel harsh.

So, how did I create this CK#148 challenge?

Well, let’s first look at the inspiration from the Crew.

CK #148

As you can see -the colours were found in this beautiful bird image.

So, I figured I needed a nature scene.

I used the Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight on the leaf design.

The stampset and dieset is Nature’s Prints.


I figured this was the best leaf design that I had in my stash that would create the look I wanted.

Then I stamped the background using the dottage in Pebbled Path onto Pebbled Path.

I used the Basic Black to matte the stamped leaf, as well as to make the sentiment.

I love being part of the Color Inkspiration Team –here’s another card design that may inspire you.

Why not consider joining us in the fun?

This CK #148 runs from now and runs for about 2 weeks.

I hope you’ll take up the challenge and consider joining us!

Happy crafting!
