JAI #290 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
it's been a while but this week for Just Add Ink we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo. Jan put together the combo for us this week. I was a bit uncertain at first where to go with it and then I decided a butterfly would be a nice change from Christmas card making. Here's the combo.

Note: The colour balance is really off in my photos and the Watermelon Wonder has a really orangey tinge but I really did use WW!

This is one of my rare clean and simple card  - yes CAS - well for me. The patterns are strong and I didn't want to overwhelm them with too much fussiness. I also couldn't bear to unbalance the symmetry so this is one of the few times I haven't added a sentiment to the front. To complement the strong patterns I've added some bling - assorted glimmer paper and a smattering of gold splatter oh and sequins too ;)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT projects for some colourful inspiration. Hope you can join us this week!

  1. Awesome card Kim, and I love the circle cut out with the embossed chevrons matching up perfectly! Very clever :)

  2. Kim I love the bold pop of green behind the butterfly and it actually really helps the butterfly stand out!!
