Just Add Ink # 489 – Colour Combo

Hi there,  well it’s the end of the working week for me and we are heading into a long weekend (due to Australia Day).  That means the possibility of time for crafting……sound good?  I think so!

To inspire you in your crafting this weekend – you can join the Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a fun and bright colour Challenge.

No photo description available.

I made 2 cards for this Challenge……..

For the first card I chose the Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover colours.
To be honest, I didn’t really have any Call Me Clover Ink, so I have to substitute it with another colour.  The one I have used is actually Old Olive – although with the water colour technique I have used, it looks less Olive.

For the second card, I chose Bermuda Bay (love this colour), Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight.

I used the same stamp set, ribbon and a frame on both cards.  The stamp set is called Beautiful Friendship.

So head on over to Just Add Ink and check out all the Design Team creations and then share yours with us too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 479 – Colour Combo!

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Colour Challenge.  The colours are soft and cool – I thought they were kind of beachy.  But I used them for a floral card.

I put some silver faceted gems in the centre of the flowers.  I really love how the shine.  What do you think?

Head on over to Just Add Ink and play along with this Challenge too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 469 – Colour Combo

It’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge.   Challenge # 469 is a Colour Challenge….

JAI # 469 colours

The colours a rich and bold and kinda earthy.   They were suggested by Di Barnes.

I used the new Celebrate with Cake stamp set for this Challenge.   The Stamp set is a lovely selection of solid stamps that can be used for various occasions.

JAI # 469 Chantell

I used both the Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile colours on the flowers.  I first inked the stamp up in the lighter Grapefruit Grove and then used a dauber to add a little Terracotta Tile to the tip of each flower, before I stamped it onto the card stock.

JAI # 469 c

I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers, which is hard to see in the pic of the full card.  You can see the Wink of Stella glitter in the pic above though.  This was because I was tilting it in the sun.

I also made another card with the colours and stamp set.   You can see it has similar elements – and features the Cake image, from the Celebrate with Cake Stamp set.

In this case, the cake is two toned and again there is Wink of Stella highlighting some of the sections of the card.JAI # 469 b

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.
