JAI 222 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
we are in the midst of school holidays over here. It was a real delight to have just a few mornings where it wasn't the usual go go go! One memorable morning, darling daughter, son and the cat piled on to the kitchen couch with me in the morning sun and watched tv, wrote a story, flipped through the new SU! catalogue and just enjoyed the company - can you guess who was doing what ;0

Right onto this weeks Just Add Ink challenge - this week we have a lovely colour combo for you from Mae. 

I went a little vintage for this one (and pretty heavy on the Blushing Bride)

I wanted a patterned background but didn't want it to be too dominant, so I clear embossed a floral pattern. The main focal panel was coloured using an aquapainter. By stamping it twice I had some flowers I could colour and then trim out and add on dimensionals. Lots of textures, and inky distressing and some tiny pearls finish off the vintage impression.

The DT have come up with some wonderfully different takes on the colour combo so do go check out the rest of the team. Hope you can join us!
