Just Add Ink #575 | Colour Challenge

Hello stamping friends! Happy Friday! Another Friday means it's time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add Ink #575 | Colour Challenge. This week its a fantstic colour challenge using two of the Stampin' Up! 2021 - 2023 In Colours - Polished Pink and Soft Succulent, and a little touch of gold. Super gorgeous and super pretty! Such a fun colour combo! Love it!

I've used the colours today for a Christmas card. While traditional Christmas colours tend to be red, green and gold, I thought why not have pink green and gold. Who says that you have to stick to traditional colours when making Christmas cards? 

Today I've used the Words of Cheer Bundle from the Stampin' Up! July - Dec 2021 Mini Catalogue. Its a fabulous bundle. The stamp set has the gorgeous floral imge which is perfect for colouring and some festive sentiments and then also in the bundle are some amazing accenting dies to bring your Christmas creations to life. 

I've embossed the large floral image with Black Embossing Powder on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper so that I could watercolour the floral image with the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent colours. So pretty! To get the leaves to look a little darker I just kept adding some of the Soft Succulent colour until I had the desired shade that I was after.

I pulled out one of my retired trims from the Stampin' Up! 2020 July - Dec Mini Catalogue to use on this card, I didn't have anything else that I thought was suitable. I love the bright gold trim on the card. The gold really adds to the festive feel. If you don't have the same trim as what I've used here you can use what you have on hand in your craft stash.

I've finished off the card with the 'Happy' and the flowers both from the Christmas Cheer Dies that are part of the Words of Cheer Bundle. Also finishing off the card is the embossed Christmas and some of the 2021 - 2023 In Colour Jewels in Polished Pink and Sof Succulent. 

I do hope that I've given you some inspiration with this weeks challenge colours.
