Just Add Ink - Just add Colouring!

I was super excited to see the challenge set this week by the Just Add Ink team........

Just add Colouring!

I haven't used my Copics in a while and I had just brought this new stamp and was dying to colour it up!!! So this challenge was perfect timing.

I've paper pieced the umbrella and it's the first time I've tried this technique and I really like it. I might have to use it more often.

LinkI've used:
-Whisper White, Basic Black, Ridinghood Red and Love Letter DSP

Ink -
Copics and Tuxedo Black memento
Stamp Set - Rain and Shine by Unity Stamps
Other: Black grosgrain ribbon, Nestabilities and flowers

So whip out your blender pens, aqua painters, markers, chalks or copics and get colouring!
Link up your creation with the JAI blog so we can all see what you've coloured :)


  1. This is such a lovely and very sweet card. Well done.
