Just Add Ink #269 - Just Add Colour

It's the first Just Add Ink Challenge for July and its an awesome one suggested by the lovely Kim.

One of the new 2015 - 2017 In Colours and an ombre of blues.
Stunning colours, right? Right! Lots to inspire you, right? Right! A great colour combo to create a card, right? Right! So for the life of me why did I find this one so hard???? I think my Mojo has gone on holidays with the kids while they have some time off school for their winter break!!

I eventually got an idea (as I was drifting off to sleep) and went from there.

I've cut 1cm strips of all the colours to use for the challenge and then laid them diagonally across the front panel. Then I cut circles out using the Circle Collection Framelits. If anyone can tell me where my 1-3/4" circle punch is, I would have used that. Maybe its time for a craft room clean up. 

I've used the new Triple Banner Punch to create a banner. I love that thing! Makes it so quick to create a banner, that's for sure!

All finished of with some Gold Metallic Thread, Metallic Assortment Sequins and the Expressions Natural Elements.

The Just Add Ink Design Team have created so many lovely cards with this combo so go check them out and come and join the challenge. We would love to see what you come up with!

Thanks for Stopping By!
