Just Add Ink #362 | Just Add A Colour Combo

Hello and welcome! It's colour combo week over at Just Add Ink and have we got a fabulous and fun  one for you today too!

I've pulled out the Sponge Brayer again for a fun and colourful background and really wanted that to be the main focus of my card today. I've graduated the colour down the card, starting with Pool Party, for an ombre look of sorts.

To really get that depth of colour with the Sponge brayer you really have to go over the cardstock quite well and roll over a lot of ink to get the darker saturation of colour. I really had to roll a lot of ink on to blend the lines in from one colour to the next. That is why the Pool Party section at the top look a lot darker than normal Pool Party. When you use the brayer roll the ink on till you are happy with the desired look you are after.

I was going to emboss the rose onto the card front with White Stampin' Emboss powder but because I used heaps of ink the front stayed damp for a long time. It was all good and well to pour the embossing powder on where I stamped the rose image but when I went to pour the powder off the whole card front was covered. Back to the drawing board. Make another front and then now what? Die cut the rose image out of vellum! Bingo!

Accented with Linen thread, 1/8" Gold Ribbon, Gold Metallic Thread and a NEW ribbon Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.

I love the simplicity of this card and yet it still has that WOW factor.
