JAI 195 Just add a colour combo

Hello :) How is everyone trekking in this crazy pre-Christmas season? I'm feeling a bit worn and have yet to send out a Christmas card - eek! (I will though). This week at Just Add Ink we have a lovely colour challenge for you. The colours are sweet and festive (in a summery way) and we also included an inspiration photo to go along with them (although you can just use the colours). And don't think you can't use the colours for a Christmas card - I did!

Here's what I came up with using the photo for inspiration.

Heavens knows why but I came up with the idea of using the chevron border punch to make a snowflake while I was at the gym. (I do find walking on the treadmill can be a good time to think ideas through especially if the guys have beaten me to the gym and put sport on the tv (boring!)). The outcome is a bit out there for me but I do like it and I do really like the colours. I'll be pulling them out for a non-traditional Christmas colour combo next year for sure again!

Hope you can join in this week. Do check out the rest of the DT for some wonderful idea.

  1. Such a clever idea Kim...l guess there's an upside to sport TV afterall..:0) Love the idea of using the Chevron punch that way and your colourful snowflake just makes me smile..very cool! xxx

  2. I agree with Nikki - you've come up with a very clever idea to use the Chevron punch! And how cool are these colours for Christmas!

  3. What a fabulous use for the Chevron Punch Kim. You are so clever. Perhaps I should take up the treadmill?
