Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2023 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational image and colour challenge, you can use either part to create your project. Either
INK – use the colour challenge to create a project unrelated to the image -{There will generally be 6 colours for the colour challenge you may use some or all colours plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or
INSPIRATION – use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. This is the beautiful image for this month:

We all love new stuff. I HAD to have a play with my new Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks. I managed to use five of the six colours – I couldn’t find a place for Garden Green.

I added some of the flowers to the insert to have the inside and outside matching.

The Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks are available in the upcoming September – December mini catalogue. You can order them on the 6th September.

You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the other participants to see how they were inspired by the gorgeous picture.
