Just Add Ink #444 | Colour Challenge

Hello there stamping friends! Ready for another Just Add Ink Challenge? This week at Just Add Ink #444 | Colour Challenge, we have a colour challenge with a twist. We've given you two of the colours and then (insert audience participation) you choose the third. Fun right! You are only limited by your imagination as how you want to add to the colour combination.

I thought the Poppy Parade and Powder Pink would be great for a two-stepped floral image so I added Garden Green to finish off the colour combination.

I've used the Stampin' Up! Stamp Set, Incredible Like You, for my colour challenge card today! This set actually goes with the Incredible Like You Project kit from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. I like to the look of some of the images for my card today and used the stamp set on it's own without the kit.

I started with my all time favourite card stock, Shimmery White, as the base for today's card. Shimmery White just gives every creation that something extra special, with its subtle shimmer. It's very hard to photograph here but the shimmer that it gives is just beautiful. And then under all my layers, I've used the striped image from the stamp set to White heat emboss some lines for some added texture. I went a bit crazy with all my layers and elements so the lines are not as prominent as when I first started creating this card but trust me there are there. One final thing I added to the base layer is a bit of splattering using the Powder Pink Ink. I just picked up a bit of the Powder Pink Ink from the lid of the ink pad using an aqua painter and then just flicked the brush tip end for that fun ink splatter.

The flower and the leaf images use the two step stamping technique for a fun layered look. The flower I started with the Powder Pink and the layered the Poppy Parade over top. For the leaf the lighter layer is Garden Green stamp off once first on scrap paper and then stamped onto the cardstock for the lighter ink colour. The top layer is the Garden Green stamped in full strength ink.  I love the stamping off technique, or as some people call it 2nd generation stamping, as it really give you another whole range of colour and gives so much more versatility to the Stampin' Up! Ink Pads.

It's all about the layers on this card today and there is a lot of them. Oops. The ribbon and trim I used Whisper White Flax Ribbon, Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle, Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim and Braided Linen Thread. On top of all that ribbon and trim I also layered the longer die from the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies. To make that die cut piece look longer that it actually is, I just cut it in half and then added it under the Stitched Circle to make it look like one long piece.

All finished off with a frame from the wooden Frames Elements, some Gold Metallic Thread, Powder Pink Sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment and the sentiment from the Incredible Like You stamp set embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
