Just Add Ink Challenge # 418 Colour Challenge

Image may contain: text

This morning as I went off to work the sun was just rising.  As it rose up over the horizon and the rays of light beamed out in channels……it was so lovely.  I tried to snap a pic of it on my phone…..but it didn’t look as good as what I was seeing.   

The colours in a sky reminded me of this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge – it’s a colour Challenge suggested by Jo.  The colours are really pretty and girly – although I must admit that the softness of the Seafoam was Challenging for me.  It’s such a lovely colour though.

Anyway – here is the card I put together.

The idea for this card came from a card I saw in a recent stamping magazine.  I’m not even sure now, which magazine it was now, but the idea stuck in my mind and here’s my take on it.

As I said before, I think this colours are really pretty.  To see some more pretty cards from the Design Team and to join our Challenge, follow this link to Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 416…….Sketch Challenge!

Image may contain: text

Here’s the Just Add Ink Challenge this week # 416 Sketch as suggested by Patrice.

Sometimes, people ask me, “Where do you get your ideas from”?

Well….. Sketches are a great start for any card, so the layout of my card this week was where I started.  For the rest of it – my inspiration came from a beautiful dress I saw an actress wearing (on TV).

It was stunning, far more sparkly and shimmery than what I have created – and it was more of an ice blue colour too.  However, it gave me the idea to colour the die cut paper like this.   The die cut paper is so delicate and pretty.  Being White on one side and Vanilla on the other, means you can team is with any colour combo.  Or even colour it, like I have here.

I really enjoyed doing the emboss resist with the water-colour wash over the top – I used 3 colours in similar tones.  Blushing Bride, Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral.  The flowers are from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set which I think is my new favourite.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 408 – Colour Combo

Image may contain: text

Hi Everyone,
It’s time to get creative for the next Just Add Ink Colour Challenge.   These colours were suggested by Rochelle and I must say, I found them quite easy to work with.   For this time of year, they are perfect for creating Mothers Day card or other girly projects.

Here is the card I put together:

This is the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp set – it’s perfect for these colours.  I used a bit of Sahara Sand Ink, which is one of my fav Neutrals.  The die cut leaves are from the Botanical Builder Dies.

At this stage, I have left the card sentiment and Bling free…..but may add those things later when I decide who I’m sending it too.

As I said before, these are great colours and we would love you to join in on the Challenge at Just Add Ink.  You can use the colours to inspire a Scrapbooking layout, 3D project or card and then share it with us.
