Just Add Ink #474 | Colour Challenge

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome! It's Friday again so that means it's new challenge day over at Just Add Ink. We have a super pretty colour challenge that just screams leaves and flowers to me.

I've pulled out the hostess stamp set Believe You Can that I've had for a little while now and thought it needed some ink love. I had originally wanted to use my aqua painters to water colour the images but I wasn't happy with the way the card was tuning out so I opted for the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers instead.

I stamped the image in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Thick cardstock and then coloured the flowers and leaves with the Stampin' Blends markers. Once coloured in I die cut the image with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Before adhering the 'thank you' image to the card, I first covered the card front with a Gold Stampin' Emboss splatter and then over that a Blackberry Bliss splatter. Over the 'splatters' I layered some of the Sahara Sand Woven Threads Trim, a piece of Rococo Rose In Colour 6" x 6" DSP embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack. I just love layering different ribbon and trims that aren't 'meant' to go together.

I've finished the card off with some of the pink sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. I'm just loving the contrast of the challenge colours against the crisp, fresh Whisper White.

What comes to mind when you see the challenge colours? Can't wait to see what you create with them.
