Just Add Ink #377 Colour

Hello there,
ahh spring has been in the air this week but I haven't been able to get out to enjoy it. Just a bit too busy at work this week! I did manage to squeeze in the time last weekend to make something for the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Rochelle has challenged us to Just Add a Colour Combo - it's a lovely combo. Here it is.

That vivid Lemon Lime in combination with the blues made me think of the aurora night lights, and so I got out my sponge brayers to see if I could pull it off - and I did!!

After brayering the background I got out my white gouache paint and flicked little splatters over the panel to add some stars. Then it was time to get die cutting. I cut two rows of houses, and to add that Christmas sparkle, embossed the lower part of both with iridescent ice embossing powder (sadly retired but you can make your own by mixing dazzling diamonds into your clear embossing powder). I backed all the windows with white cardstock and then add the two layers up on dimensional. To finish the card off I white embossed the sentiment across the night sky.

I had fun seeing if I could created this as I had envisaged it. The rest of the JAI team have some gorgeous projects to show you so do go check them out and then join in the challenge!
