Just Add Ink #327

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This weeks challenge is a colour challenge and has been suggested by Jan.


As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent Saturday wandering around Paperific, a craft show here in Melbourne.  Craft shows are perfect if you want to get inspired (which I did) and is also good if you want to learn how to use new products.  At one point Rochelle and I were standing watching a demonstration when we spied a striking card that had a light blue and dark blue background with a white die cut sentiment.  For the life of me (because I’m not a big technique crafter) I couldn’t tell you the technique that was used – but I liked the effect. Rochelle gave me the challenge of re-creating a card like it.  Unbelievably the challenge colours at Just Add Ink are exactly what I needed to accept Rochelle’s challenge.

To create my background I have heat embossed the leaves and flowers from Birthday Blossoms with white embossing powder on watercolour paper.  I then spritzed the paper with water and then watercoloured, quite haphazardly, a combination of Soft Sky and Denim Dapper Ink.  The little flowers I’ve used are from Swirly Bird and the die cut leaves are from Botanical Builder Framelits.  The “Happy” sentiment is created with Hello You Thinlit Dies and the “Birthday” sentiment is from Four You. Here’s my card:


Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look at the gorgeous cards the girls have created.  We would love it if you could play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is absolutely stunning Narelle! I adore your watercoloured background – the White embossed images are so soft and dreamy and your bold blue circles and coral flowers are such a gorgeous and striking contrast – I hope you don’t mind if I Case it? xx
