Clearsnap ColorBox Blends for Eileen Hull

Hello Friends

During the month of February, Eileen Hull's Inspiration team are sharing projects made with Eileen's range of inks- ColorBox Blends by Clearsnap.  I need to say up front that, at the moment, these inks are not available in the UK, but hopefully they will be soon.

ColorBox Blends come in a range of 16 colours, they are produced in sponge top dispensers that are so easy to use.  They can be used for paper, card, fabric, wood, clay and more!  The dispensers hold 10 times the amount of ink of a normal ink pad. You just need to heat set them for permanence. 

I used three colours of ColorBox Blends - Bay, which is a soft teal colour, Nutmeg and Stop, which is a pretty amazing red!  I used the inks in four different ways.
I die cut the elements I wanted to use - Eileen Hull's Bag, Caddy die (Sizzix 657123) and Eileen Hull's Flower, Pansy die (Sizzix 661109).  I cut the flower three times, to give a nice big flower.
I decanted some of the ink (Bay) into a spritzer bottle and added water in a ratio of 50:50 and spritzed the caddy all over (coverage is excellent) and heat dried the pieces.
I used a third colour of ColourBox Blend (Nutmeg) to stamp here and there using a script stamp by IndigoBlu.  I didn't use a stamp block, as I wanted a more random look.
I coloured the flower direct to card, colouring both sides.  Once dry, I scrunched them up and fastened the petals with a pearl brad.

To colour the ribbon, I dabbed the ink on my glass mat, added some water and dragged the ribbon through and then heat set the colour.

To finish off I stamped the words Bloom and Grow with Nutmeg and added them to the caddy.
Another look at the finished caddy.

If you would like to see how my Teamie, Tracy used the inks you can see her post here.

Thanks for your visit today, I really appreciate that and any comments you leave.

Take care and hope to see you again soon!

Hugs, Anne xx

  21. Looks like you had a great time using the new inks and that red flower looks amazing. I hate red inks that vere towards pink rather than bright pillar box (if you know what I mean) and that looks a really good red!! Elaine x

  22. Gorgeous! Love your amazing red flower Anne. It puts me in mind of something a flamenco dancer would wear, and teams beautifully with the rich bay colour used for the caddy. Your splattering technique is perfect too for something that is so random, my splatters never look the way I want them to lol. Hope you are keeping well. Hugs Lottie xx

  23. Love the soft bay shade with the bright flame pop of the lush flower. And how perfectly you've matched the ribbon too. Haven't seen this colorbox product yet, but I have some of the ink pads. What an amazing project you've created with these dies...TFS & Hugs.

  30. Hi, Anne!
    Oh my gosh! I love, love, love your project. I have these dies and have NEVER used them but am so inspired now that I can't wait to dust them off and create something. The color palette is so beautiful, and that flower really makes a statement.

    Hugs,
