So many colours and my initial thought was “how do I combine that many bright colours for a shabby chic card?”  Flowers seemed the best way to go – here’s what I came up with:

The Deconstructed Sketch #141 & Colour Me Create Challenge #10

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is combined for two challenges – The Deconstructed Sketch and Colour Me Creative Challenge.

I love a monochromatic card, but today I really struggled.  Old Olive is not a colour that I use much anymore so finding Old Olive designer series paper that worked for the sketch had me stumped.  In the end I’ve added Crumb Cake cardstock as a sort of buffer for the green.  The designer series papers I used is a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Cottage Walls DSP and the stamp set I’ve used is a Stampin’ Up! one called Blessed Easter.

Just Add Ink #201

Hey Everyone

We celebrated our 200th challenge at Just Add Ink last week.  Thanks to everyone who played along with us – your projects were lovely!  This week we have a new colour challenge for you to try.

I always seem to struggle with colour challenges and my stress was made even worse when the only Island Indigo cardstock I had left was about 10cm x 7cm!  After much searching I found this scrap of designer series paper from a retired pack called Twitterpated.  I decided to keep lots of white space on my card as it made it easier to combine the colours. In the end I realised I had missed putting Pool Party on my card so I tied a Pool Party Seam Binding bow and added it to my card.  The tulips from Stampin’ Up!s Blessed Easter are coloured with a blender pen and Real Red ink and I’ve lightly stamped Dictionary in the background.
