JAI 57 Just add a colour combo
well I'm glad I left it to write up my post till today (Thursday night) because I have been feeling headachy and tired for the last couple of days and not at all cheery - but the headache cleared up late this afternoon hurray!! So feeling much more chirpy at the momment - just in time to welcome you to a new Just Add Ink challenge and this week we have a colour combo for you. Here it is.
I have got to be honest this one was seriously challenging! in fact I binned my first go at it. Overall the colours struck me as leaning more to the masculine side so that's what I went with.
Since I making a boys birthday card I kept it pretty clean and simple - a Cherry Cobler base, then a white mat stamped with the train engine in the three colours. I tried to generate a bit of interest by staggering the stamping in each row. To finish off a strip of River Rock stamped with the sentiment and one more train engine trimmed out and mounted and framed. Lastly a couple of brads in the wheels to finish up.
Thanks for visiting and if you have a chance have a go at the challenge too!
