Just Add Ink #423 | Colour Challenge

Hello there stamping friends! It' time again for another Just Add Ink Challenge. We have a great colour challenge for you suggested by Design Team Member, Kim. Some lovely neutrals, a pop of bright colour and some gorgeous metallics.

With Father's Day just round the corner here in Australia, the first Sunday in September, I thought this colour combo was perfect for a Father's Day card.

I've kept the card quite CAS (clean and simple) and really let the challenge colours speak for themselves. The contrast of the Basic Gray and the Bermuda Bay on the Whisper White, really make the colours jump off the card. I started with some 1/2cms strips of Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray and alternated them on the front of the card. Four of the Basic Gray and 5 of the Bermuda Bay. Apparently the 'designers' say that things look better in and odd number. Over the strips I then used my favourite technique at the moment splatters with embossing powder.

For the 'dad' letters I picked a piece of the Wood Textures DSP that was the closest in colour to Soft Suede and then embossed the letters with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder to give a bold outline against the Wood Textures DSP.

Even though this is a card for the Dads in our lives I reckon that you can still use ribbon and trim to accent your cards for the men. The Silver Baker's twine adds to the Silver in the challenge colours and the Burlap ribbon is a perfect addition to the neutral colours for this week.

How cute are those little stars at the bottom of the card? They actually come from the Festive Farmhouse Elements from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue. The little stars not only go with Christmas cards but cards for any other occasion.

Check out more inspiration on the Just Add Ink Blog, there is everything from baby cards, flowers, birthday's to Father's Day. It always amazes me how all the cards are so different and yet we all have the same colours. Come and play along with the design team, we'd love to see how this weeks challenge colours inspire you. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
