Inspire. Create. Challenge. First Ever Challenge!!! #001

I am so pleased and proud to have been chosen to join the DT on this new challenge blog - Inspire. Create. Challenge. This is a new, fortnightly (Yes! Lots of fun inspiration and ideas, regularly) challenge blog with clever and talented DT members so there's sure to be a lot of great inspiration each fortnight :-)
I don't know about you but I love a good challenge, it's great for when you have a little creative block to work to a challenge- be it a colour, sketch or theme challenge you're sure to be inspired to create something!
Today is the very first challenge (#001) on the BLOG and the challenge this week is to use Basic Grey, Calypso Coral and White for your cards/projects.
So lets see what I came up with shall we. And as it's the very first challenge I decided to make two cards using this colour combo...
 This first card uses the Wood Words stamp set. I stamped in Basic Grey and coloured using an aqua painter with Calypso Coral, then after it dried I used a blender pen to go back in and add more coral to accent to the watercoloured flowers. I did also add a few (sneaky) Garden Green leaves too ;-)
 This sentiment from Better Together, I do love this font.
TIP: Carefully roll your die cut shape in an ink pad to make it pop on a card.
 Finish with a few sequins for some subtle bling.
 Now, this second card uses the spotlight technique with the little wreath from At Home With You.
 I stamped the wreath repeatedly across the card front and then die cut a heart using the Sweet and Sassy framelits before colouring the images in the heart shape using my blender pens.
TIP: Blender pens are great for colouring really little images like this.
 Wrap a little ribbon around the edge before glueing it down onto a coral card base. Finish by adding the heart, slightly off set, with dimensionals so you can see a little pop of coral and you're done!
And once more together to finish today :-)
Well, it's been a picture heavy post today so if you are still reading, I congratulate you! And many thanks for stopping by today. Please do stop by the challenge blog to see what the other DT members have made and I'm sure you'll be inspired to create something so I'll look forward to seeing what you make using these colours!
