Just Add Ink Challenge # 464 – Colour Combo

My holiday is now over and I made it back to Australia ok.   We had a fabulous time exploring Europe.  So many wonderful days full of exciting adventures.  Lots of great memories made.

We loved Venice the most – it was magical.   At Disneyland (Paris) we had “The Best Day Ever!”  And the food in Munich and the UK was fabulous.

We realised how lucky we are in Australia and New Zealand in terms of space and cleanliness as we found many of the cities we went to very crowded and dirty (particularly Rome)!

I have been back now for 6 days but find I am still feeling the effects of the Jet lag. We all came home with the flu which probably has not helped with adjusting to the time zone.

Back to work!
I chucked a sickie on Monday to recover from the Jetlag and cold/flu that I came home with.  Then returned to the office on Tuesday.

With my Rotterdam water bottle on my desk, I am getting back into the swing of things.  The office is pretty quiet at the moment, which is good but I do find myself yawning through the afternoons.

I have spent a little bit of time in my craft room and created a card for the Just Add Ink Challenge this week.
JAI 464This week we have a very pretty Colour Combo to play with that was suggested by Jackie.  Here is the card I made:

I masked a circle and the stamped some dots around it in the Soft Sea Foam.  That created a lovely frame for my sentiment.    I used a selection of Stamp sets on this card.  Rooted in Nature for the Sentiment, Perennial Birthday for the Flowers and Leaves and Daisy Delight for the Dotty frame.

I added Pool Party to my card.   To make the back ground I sponged a bit of Pool Party and then some Lovely Lipstick through a stencil.    Well…………to be honest, it was only meant to be the Pool Party, but I picked up the wrong sponge!!   LOL – oh well, I just adapted it a bit.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 418 Colour Challenge

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 # 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.
