Just Add Ink #317 - Colour combo

Just Add Ink have a colour combo challenge this week that I think lends it's self perfectly to be used with flowers.

The colour combo is Flirty Flamingo, Rose Red, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz!

I don't have any of the new Stampin' Up! in colours yet so I've used Blushing Bride instead of Flirty Flamingo.

For this card I've used a couple of stamp sets from Altenew. Including this beautiful 'celebrate' sentiment which I've fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals.
I was really tempted to use my wink of stella on the flowers but I resisted and let the little sequins steal the bling show :)

I'd really love to see how you used these colours - with flowers or not!!

Here's the colour combo -

Happy Friday!

Just Add Ink #315 - Sketch

Yahoo it's sketch challenge time at Just Add Ink!!!

Like all challenges some are easier than others, this particular sketch challenge was a hard one for me.  I'm not entirely loving what I created as I had something else in mind that just didn't work at all!

I really wanted to use up some DSP on this card as I haven't used any DSP in weeks.

I think the flowers need to be a little bigger and that's what's been nagging at me about this card, other than that I think it's a wonderful and sweet card for the recipient I had in mind when creating it.

Can you see the wink of stella I've used on the flowers?  It looks so good in real life..... what did we do before WoS??

Any way here's the sketch for this week.

The Design team have really come up with some interesting takes on this sketch so pop on over to the JAI blog and check them out.
Can't wait to see what you do with it :)
