#CI35 Colour Inkspiration Crew - Nautical Neutrals

Hello and welcome to this fortnights Colour INKspiration challenge #CI35  😊

You have reached Kim Oliver - KOCreations Cards. There is a NEXT button a little further down to keep you moving through the hop.

Stampin' Up!® has just had a major colour revamp, so to start off the new catalogue year at Colour INKspiration we've decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased then all! The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual, just to mix it up. This month we are starting off with the Neutrals Collection and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project.
We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the basics - Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as Metallic.

If have joined me from the very clever Jackie Aitken's page, welcome 😊
Did you enjoy Jackie's card? I certainly did. The Rooted In Nature set is just gorgeous! I noticed a little stitched Label peeping from behind the tree! Did you see it too?

Here is the Challenge Palette.
 The colour choices this quarter are amazing.
The NEW NEUTRALS collection! The new collection has a couple of the new colours mixed in.
Can you guess which colours I chose??

The colours I chose to create with are pictured below.

Here is my Project.

Nautical Neutrals

This card is super easy to create. Just stamp your images in your desired colours and die cut them using the co-ordinating thinlits! I didn't even stamp some of the images I just die cut them using coloured card stock.
I have added a Stitched Label behind the octopus image in Sahara Sand to help make him pop. 
I am super happy with how this little project finished.

Up next we have Kelly Kent sharing her beautiful inspirations.
