Just Add Ink #459

Happy weekend, everyone! Just a quick share today to show you what I’ve made for this week’s Just Add Ink colour challenge, because it was such a fun and bright colour combination I just had to play along.

The card I started to make is nothing like what I ended up with – please tell me I’m not the only one that this happens to!! I was going for a lot of white with the pops of colour, but ended up with lots of colour with a pop of gold.

I’ve stuck with the colours from the challenge – a Whisper White base card with mats of Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana (which has been run through the Subtle Texture Embossing Folder for some, well, subtle texture) and the heart in Blushing Bride.

This heart die is from my stash of contraband non-Stampin’ Up! crafting supplies. Sometimes a girl just gotta have what a girl sees on the shelves in Spotlight, and this Sizzix die was one of those for me. I’ve layered the solid heart on adhesive back crafting foam so the whole thing pops up off the page, then the detailed overlay also in blushing bride, then a few of the elements cut and layered on top in the other challenge colours for some pop.

The “You” is cut from gold metallic foil and also layered on foam so that it stands up off the page. I love the little touch of gold with these colours.

I love the Just Add Ink challenge. Their design team always comes up with the most amazing creations and lots of other people join in and share their projects as well. Check them out on their blog page or Facebook.

 

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. The intricate detail is pretty stunning Siobhan so I’m not surprised it was a must have! I love how it looks tone on tone with just those tiny splashes of colour! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim

  2. This is gorgeous Siobhan! Your heart die is beautiful and I love how you’ve added contrasting colours to highlight the images – a stunning result! You’re definitely not alone having projects turn out differently to how we first think. Usually it pays off as yours did here, sometimes I end up going back to it though. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
