JAI 174 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well I must admit I almost forgot to write up my post this week as my usual program of weekly events is all out of sync because of school holidays. But I'm really glad I did remember as this week at Just Add Ink we have a lovely, very new, colour challenge for you. Yes this week its time to Just add a colour combo. Here's the colours.
Now if you don't have these exact colours, you can substitute with close alternatives - say for example Crumb Cake and Pool Party in SU! terms.

A close up of my first Simply Pressed clay button, painted with a light sheen of crystal effects. I was delighted with how it turned out - and it was a lot of fun to make it too!
As you might guess I had fun playing with an embossing folder again. This time I used my brayer to apply Baked Brown Sugar to the raised side of the SU! Honeycomb embossing folder and then I pressed my card stock gently onto the folder. By shear chance I got a clear space on the bottom left at the front - so that predestined where my sentiment would go. I framed it with stamped and embossed flowers and some extra swirly bits - and a banner - I'm finding it hard not to add one to cards right now - lol!

I really enjoyed playing with this colour combo as its a really lovely one!  Hope you can join us and play with the colours too. Thanks for visiting,
