JAI #302 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well we are still sweltering here but thankfully with the aid of air conditioning (and some time on the weekend) it was possible to sit somewhere coolish and craft! The cooler tones of the new Just Add Ink challenge this week - Just add a colour combo, suggested by Jan, might help other equally hot Aussies cool down too. Here are the colours.

This is what I came up with.

The two purples are pretty bold so I tried to balance them out with lots of neutral tones. I also stamped both shades off to try and get more colour variation to use. Then it was just a question of die cutting lots of flowers and then playing around with the floral arrangements until I was happy. There has to be some shimmer and shine, so I embossed my sentiment and added tiny flowers punched from Shimmer White cardstock and then a scattering of pearls to finish.

The DT have lots of beautiful inspiration for you so do check them out! Hope you can join us.

  1. This is gorgeous Kim! I love the variation of colours you've made by stamping off and how you've arranged them - they just pop off the neutral background tones and I adore the sentiment in its window too! xx

  2. Well this is just lovely, Kim! Your arrangement of these beautiful flowers is perfect, and I love the addition of the little plain white with pearls - nice balance. xxx

  3. Love it Kim! The balance of colour and neutral elements is really beautiful. Even the inside detail would make a great card. xx
