Just Add Ink #565 | Colour Challenge

  Hello there stamping friends! Happy Friday! Welcome and thanks for joining me on my blog today. It's so good to have you here.  I hope you're having a fabulous day and that you have all been safe and well. I've had a bit of a break from creating and blogging but I'm so happy to be back here with you today!

Today we over at Just Add Ink have another creative challenge for you. This week its a fantstic colour challenge chosen by Just Add Ink Design Team member Lou - Just Add Ink #565 | Colour Challenge.

We've got two of the gorgeous Stampin' Up! 2021 - 2023 In Colours - Polished Pink and Pale Papaya, and then teamed those two colours with Basic Black from the Basics Collection.

I've gone for a Shimmery White card for you today and then added small pops of colour using the challenge colours. The beauty of these challenges is that you can use as much or as little of the challenge colours for your creation. I've gone for a less is more look today.

The base of my card is Shimmery White. I've created a 5" x 5" square card and then using my Brother Scan 'N' Cut, I cut a 4" square out of the front panel. This then created a frame on the front panel to then lay the floral die cut pieces, from the Artistic Dies, for a pretty front panel. Behind the die cut pieces I added a piece of the Expressions in Ink 12" x 12" DSP incorporates the gorgeous Pale Papaya colour with a beautful Watercolour/Alcohol Ink wash look.

 Because the base layers of the card are so busy and so pretty too I didn't want much to layer over it. I've used some of the gold metallic pieces from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and some Linen thread. Over that is some of the classic black and white stripe DSP from the hostess Pattern Party 12" x 12" pack.

Layered over the DSP is a small strip of Polished Pink cardstock and then overlaid with the Happy Birthday Senitment from the Artisitcally Inked stamp set. I've then finished the card of with some another piece from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and some of the super pretty 2021 - 2023 In Colour Jewels in Polished Pink.

I do hope that I've given you some inspiration with this weeks challenge colours. Come and check out the rest of the amazing creations from the Just Add Ink Design Team using these gorgeous colours at the JAI Blog. We hope that you will join in this weeks challenge. I can't wait to see you join in and to see your fantastic projects for this weeks challenge.

  1. That is an absolutely WOW card.

  2. Such a pretty card. I would never think to use my S'n'C to create the window. I will have to remember that trick!

  3. This is just so pretty and feminine Rochelle and I love the little bit of 'edge' the black and white stripes gives it! Hope you enjoyed your break - welcome back to Blogland! Vicky x
