JAI 166 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well welcome back for a special two week - lots of the JAI team are away at the South Pacific SU! convention challenge - you can't tell we are excited about that can you  - lol. Ok so what is the Just Add Ink challenge? - well its a lovely colour combo.

And here is what I came up with.(Apologies about the dull lighting - with winter coming on here in Aus the window for decent lighting is pretty narrow :( )

The top down foliage, if I can put it that way, was inspired by I card I saw a few weeks ago on Pinterest. I was intrigued and I must admit I'm glad I had a play with the idea - cause it turned out nice! To lighten up the colours I added a lot of the detail by white embossing, and of course you get that lovely shine and texture as a bonus. To fill in the gaps between the larger flowers I added little punched ones dressed up with pearls.

This is a lovely colour combo - it has such a fresh feel. Do check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous inspiration. Hope you can join us!
