Inspire.Create.Challenge 049 | Thank You Free as a Bird

Hey folks! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge project today, and this time we had a colour combination to work with. Now, for all I set the challenges for Inspire.Create I never seem to be organised enough to set a challenge that I can actually see a project for, and I have to admit that when this challenge appeared in my diary I did do a bit of a double take at the colours! But, it is a challenge for a reason…

Thank you card using Free as a Bird from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

So, the colour combination at work here is; Basic Gray, Mango Melody, and Pool Party… sorry girls!

I am still loving the Free as a Bird stamp set, but I realised that I hadn’t actually made a card with the single bird stamp! So, here we are. I’ve stamped it in Smoky Slate rather than Basic Gray because I’m a very bad demonstrator and my Basic Gray ink is retired Archival and so doesn’t work with Blends. But all the classic inks do.

Free as a Bird coloured with Stampin' Blends by StampinByHannah

I’m not very good with my Stampin’ Blends, but I am trying to practice, and so I’ve used Pool Party Light and Dark to attempt some colour blending on this bird. I’m happy with it, although it is pretty subtle. The beak is actually light Pumpkin Pie (because I don’t have the Mango Melody Blends… again, bad Demo!)

The Free as a Bird stamp set also comes bundled with these fabulous Nested Stitched Labels dies. They add a little extra something to every card with their unusual shape and fun stitched edge, I can’t get enough of them!
