Just Add Ink #352 | Just Add a Colour Combo

Here's to another Friday and another Just Add Ink card challenge - Just Add Ink #352 - Just Add  Colour Combo. Its fun and bright with a little hint of neutrals.

I've incorporated this fun colour combo with the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and some other fun products from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I made three attempts at this card all with a different base layer until I was happy with the result. It all wasn't working for a bit there and was doing my head in!

I usually like to have a white base layer on my cards and I did start with that but I felt with the white, Shimmery White of course, that it was too stark as a base layer as compared to the Smoky Slate. Loving that grey embossed base.

Even though the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is in the Urban Underground Suite in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue, which is very much geared towards the males, you don't have to use it just on masculine cards. I love it here mixed with the prettiness of the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and the Flirty Flamingo and Tempting Turquoise colours which are very pretty.

It may be hard to see but I've used the 'dots' image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set for a bit of white on white colouring. The Stitched Shapes Square is cut out of Shimmery White cardstock and then I've used White Stampin' Embossing powder to heat emboss the dots. Give it a soft and subtle look.

The dragonfly has been stamped with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss powder. You still get that bright Tempting Turquoise colour and with the Clear Stampin' Embossing it give is a shiny look as well.

All finished off with some ribbon, trim, sequins and thread. Some of my favourite embellishments. So pretty!
