Just Add Ink #290 - Colour Combo

It's challenge day at Just Add Ink and Jan has suggested a great colour combo for us to try!

The colours are Watermelon Wonder, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and
Sahara Sand.  I'd never think to use these colours together but they really do work in nicely together.

I thought they worked well as a little twist on the traditional Christmas colours :)
The Watermelon Wonder looks really red in these photos but in really life they are a bit pinker!

Would you believe I don't have any Garden Green ink! Luckily I had some cardstock and dsp I could use for this challenge.

The Design Team have really created so many different looks with these colours! You really must check out their work here.

Don't forget to link up your creation too :)

Happy Friday.

Just Add Ink #288 - Sketch

It's sketch time at Just Add Ink this week!

There are so many things in this world to be grateful for but how often do you take the time to thank someone for something they've done and show them you've appreciated their help?
I know for me that I often verbalise my appreciation but I think it's nice to also put some action (like a little card or flowers) with those words.
This sketch was the perfect opportunity to create a card for one of these occasions.

I've embossed a piece of black core'dination paper and then gently sanded off the top so the white peeped through.
I put this behind my starburst cutout (although from this picture it's hard to tell it's sitting behind) and for the final touch I put on a big 'Thanks'.

I really hope you get to make time for yourself to play along with the Just Add Ink sketch this week.

The Design Team have created some beautiful samples so don't forget to pop over to the JAI blog and have a look.

Can't wait to see what you create :)
