JAI #322 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well this week has had some ups and downs. I got time to stamp, that was a good way to start but then my laptop was dying (really not good news). It did serve me well for five years. Although it's a bit sad that we consider that well and truly the lifetime for a computer I think! So it was time to move on and upgrade. Before everything got chaotic I managed to tackle this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Rochelle wants you to Just add a Colour Combo. Here are the colours.

These colours had a very sweet vintage vibe to me and I knew instantly I wanted to make a jar of flowers.

Once again the weather was not my friend when I was trying to get a decently lighted photo.

Just a few things to note here that are a little out of the ordinary. Firstly, I used the burlap textured stamp in the Jar of Love stamp set to 'kiss' the water fill stamp for the jar on the front to add in a lovely watery texture. Now you may have noticed the jar label and be scratching your head and saying 'That's not in the Jar of Love' set and you would be right! I used a framelit from the PL Cards and Labels set, cut a label then cut both ends a bit shorter and used a Chocolate Chip marker to doodle a border that matched the stamped jar lines and had the perfect space to stamp the sentiment.

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