Just Add Ink #580 | Colour Challenge

Hello stamping friends! Happy Friday! Another Friday means it's time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add Ink #580 | Colour Challenge. This weeks colour combo has been suggested by me. I saw these colours on Pinterest on a wedding/bridesmaid 'mood board' and thought they would be fabulous for a Just Add Ink colour challenge.

I just love the richness of the Evening Evergreen and then paired with the Blushing Brde and Gold makes for a stunning colour combination. Don't you think?

I've use the colours today for a Christmas Card using some never used before (by me) Stampin' Up! products - Festive Foliage Cling Stamp Set and the Bright Baubles Bundle.

I've started with the Evening Evergreen colour as my base layer and used some tone on tone stamping and ink blending to create a rich and almost regal looking base layer. I stamped the Festive Foliage stamp onto the Evening Evergreen cardstock with Evening Evergreen Classic Ink and then using a blending brush added some Evening Evergreen Classic Ink to the edges of the cardstock to create a deep and rich Evening Evergreen look. If you are recreating this at home you can make the colour as rich and intense as you like. The more ink you add the darker the look will become.

Over the base layer stamping and ink blending I splattered some droplets of water over the cardstock and then added flicks of gold embossing. The water lifts some of the ink colour so you get some lighter tones where the water lands and then the gold embossed splatters almost have the look of snow (even though we don't get snow here in Melbourne at Christmas time) to add to the Christmas look and feel of the card.

I've layered some of the dies from the Delicate Bauble Dies as the main 'centre piece' of my card. These gorgeous dies are stunning and you really don't need much else to go with them when using these on any project. They are a real statement on their own. The base layer of the bauble I've die cut using Blushing Bride and overlayed the intricate die cut, cut out of the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. 

It's all finished off with some Gold Embossed sentiments from the Bright Baubles Stamp Set, Linen Thread, Gold Metallic Thread (Retired) and Gilded Gems.

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