JAI #135 - Just Add Colour Combo

Hello

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)

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Flower by Magenta, Sentiment from Savvy Stamps
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Baby Pink, Crimson and Pear Green Pro-Markers from Letraset

Jo you may not think this week's DT submission is very imaginative but I think it is divine. I love how you have used the colours and the simplicity of the design. I often forget the effect of a white panel on a white card, I should try this more myself. Love your card.

Jo this is really sweet! The little drops of colours on the petals and leaves just pop against all the white. xxx

I love this! The perfect CAS card and such a fun image. I agree...I don't know if I could pay that much for one stamp. But it is so cute. I just might have to give in like you did:)

Great stamp! Love it inked in these pretty colours. I do love lots of white space and your card is right up my alley. x
