JAI #254 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
it's Friday (always a good thing - especially after a busy week) and time to share the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo. This week it was my pick and rather ironically it took me a few goes to end up with something I was happy with. But then that's why they're called challenges! Here's the colours.

Here's what I came up with (the third time!).

I settled on a heart focal point to frame the sentiment. I kept that and the flower/ foliage accents fairly simply so as not to compete with the Tangelo embossed the Something Lacey background.  To add even more depth and texture I embossed the Old Olive mat. I quite like the way the front turned out but it took a while to get to that point!

Want to try your hand at the colour combo? I'd love to see what you come up with. Hope you can join us and do check out the rest of the DT - for some gorgeous colourful inspiration.

Thanks for visiting,
