Howdy, this week at Just Add Ink, we have a colour challenge. Such pretty colours, look
So, here's the first (and my favourite)
For this card, I have used the pennant from Party This Way, stamped in Basic Grey - well, they were originally stamped in the coordinating ink colour but I decided that they needed to be done in a darker colour, so I went over them all. Thank goodness for the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig :) I then punched them out with the Petite Pennant punch and used my teeny, tiny hole punch to pop holes in the top and threaded some linen thread though to string them up. The sentiment is from a set called Love Birds by Annabelle Stamps. I bought this set just for this sentiment but the rest of the set is pretty nice too, *wink* The frame I hand drew, originally with my Basic Grey marker but it looked too light against the sentiment, which is also in Basic Grey, so I traced over it with my black marker. Nerve wracking I tell you since I did it after I had put the whole card together.
This is my second card, and my original idea for this colour combo
I thought these colours were perfect for a teenage girl, so I used my PTI Faux Ribbon set and stamped alternating bands of colour. I used some of the Big Shot adhesive to adhere the glitter paper to some cardboard that came with one of my new dies, just to give the numbers a little bit of extra strength. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Well, that's all from me. Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with too.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting
