Colour INKspiration Creative Challenge #06

Welcome back crafters

#Thatsthetag #Loveyourmum #motherslove #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbylove #Thankyou #ColourINKspiration #CI06 #Butterflies

I am loving life right now :)...
I was chosen to be a guest designer for Colour INKspiration... 

A wonderful Facebook group that get together once a fortnight and work on a new colour swatch for us. 
They then blog their creativity in a hop to inspire our creativity with.
And I am part of the hop!! Whoot Whoot :D
Such an honour to be part of this.
Thank you Bronwyn x

Here is the colour swatch for this fortnight.
Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil
How fabulous are those colours, right!

My Mum does a fair bit for me, as Mums tend to do. She is my number one fan!
My Mum supports my creative habit, attends all of my classes that I teach and helps me with the kids when needed too.
So, to let her know how much she is appreciated, I have made her a little gift using the colours above...I am going to fill the bag with chocolates :) she loves choccies.
It doesn't have to be mothers day to let your Mum know how much you love her, does it? 

This was the perfect opportunity for me to try out the 'That's the Tag' bundle and the 'Gift Bag' Punch Board.

Here are my projects.

Timeless Tags

For my Mum

I used 1 sheet of  'By The Shore' DSP. The Calypso Coral dots in lines was my chosen pattern. 
This was just perfect to make my Gift Bag from and then try to build up the other colours with my tag and corresponding layers.

For the tags on both projects, I used Gold Foil for the backing. 
I used Night of Navy for the front of the tag, with the butterfly cut out. This enabled the gold foil to peep though nicely.
I tied both both the gold and night of navy tags together with metallic gold thread, so they could swing loosley and apart from each other too.

I added a gold embossed calypso coral flower with a gold metallic shape to carry those colours through a little more.

To add the Pool Party colour in the mix I added a banner behind the tags with a bow, just below the gold binder clips which hold everything in place..

 Did you notice the little butterflies on the card???
They were the waste from the cut out on the tag!...I hate to throw things away and I feel it adds a bit of depth to the card as well as adding another interest point :)
