JAI# 273 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink it's time for a colour challenge. Rochelle has given us an interesting vibrant colour combo that I really rather liked. I thought the colours would make a great birthday card so I pulled out a dotty stencil and got to work! Here's the colours.

And here is what I came up with.

I knew I wanted to explore what colour the inks would be on the kraft cardstock, and I also wanted to play with the dots stencil. So I pulled the stencil out and sponged a pattern of white dots on kraft then heat set them. Layered the stencil on again, offset slightly and then started scribbling on colour. (Going back sometime I saw Erica Cerwin do this scribble technique and tucked it away as something to try sometime. One point I do remember her saying is to make sure you keep all your scribbling in the same direction - it looks much better!). Anyway I loved how it turned out here so I then added some banners, throwing in some silver glimmer (this is for a birthday after all) and that's about it.

Do check out the rest of the fabulous DT creations. Hope you can join us!

  1. That is such a cool technique, Kim. The dots very cleverly seem to create an optical illusion, popping right off the page & screen. Using the glimmer was a really clever touch too. Nicely done, my friend.

  2. Wow! I love how the offset circles look like they have been punched from the Kraft - such a fabulous technique that I will have to CASE! Adore all the silver and sequin sparkle too - so celebratory. xo

  3. What a cool technique and card Kim! It looks so 3D, love the greeting and banner details...Very cool card! xxx
