Howdy, this week we have a colour challenge at Just Add Ink
Felicity welcomed her much anticipated bundle of joy to the world a week ago today, or something floral. I decided on the floral and started off using my 'Just Because' set. After faffing around watercolouring it, sprizting it with shimmer mist and cutting it out, I decided to do something completely different after getting sidetracked by something I found on the floor! This is what I ended up making
And I totally love it. The card base is Sahara Sand textured cardstock, as is the top panel. I have stamped that panel with Sahara Sand ink by inking up one of my clear blocks and stamping directly onto the cardstock. I really love the effect this technique gives. I then coloured the inside of the Flower Garden embossing folder using Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Not Quite Navy markers. I shoved the stamped piece into the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot and this is the result. Then I just used dimensionals to attach it to the card base. I did try adding a sentiment, but didn't like the way it looked so I trashed it and started again. Not so much of a big deal because I had already accidently used my Early Espress marker instead of the Chocolate Chip one - oops. To clean the inside of my embossing folder, I just spritzed it with a little Stampin' Mist and then popped a baby wipe inside and ran it through the Big Shot and it came out as clean as a whistle :)
Make sure you check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, lots of beautiful ideas to inspire you I'm sure.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend
