JAI #135 - Just Add Colour Combo


This week we have a colour challenge at Just Add Ink.  Check them out

I must say that this week's sample is not the most imaginative thing that I've ever come up with.  I don't get a lot of crafting time, and for the past two weeks I've spent nearly all of it preparing for my son's birthday party, which we had on Sunday just gone.  Hopefully I can get back into a bit more of a routine now that it is all over.

Anyway, here is my sample for this week.

When I checked to see what the challenge was for this week and I saw it was this colour combo, it immediately reminded me of flower colours.  Then I thought about what flower stamps I had and remembered that I had this little beauty.  I love this stamp, and I must because after all this time, I still can't believe that I paid $22.95 for a SINGLE stamp!  It's made by Magenta.  The sentiment is an old favourite too from Savvy Stamps, one of my first 'international' purchases.  I wasn't sure they were still around but I've seen their name mentioned recently on a couple of blogs that I follow so they must still be in business.  I really like their clean & simple designs.

I stamped both the image and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured them with my Pro-Markers, which I am using much more than I ever throught I would.  I used Baby Pink, Crimson and Pear Green which were excellent matches to the SU colours.  I think I may have to put another little order in to get some more :)

Well, that's it from me.  Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with.

Have a good weekend (I'm looking forward to this one because, apart from doing the grocery shopping, I don't have anything else planned, well, except for the cleaning)
