Just Add Ink #381 Choose Two

Hello there,
well we are back home and back into the school routine for the last term of the year. Routine also means I had a day off to cook, do laundry and also some stamping (after a nearly two week drought that was really nice!). So it was time to make a card for Just Add Ink, this week we have a fun challenge for you. We want you to Just Choose Two. This time Jan has suggested our combo of..

In a funny way this was actually hard for me. But in the end I knew I wanted to pull out embossing paste again and well its truly hard for me not to use sequins so that is what I went with.

I think I must have been influenced by all the flowers abounding in our spring garden and the bright sunlight when I made this and even now it makes me happy to just look at it. I began with my background, brayering a layer of blue. Then tinted four small blobs of embossing paste with reinker (Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Berry Burst and Tempting Turquoise). Using a stencil I carefully added the paste, in the four different colours, in a random scatter pattern. I wanted the paste to be a complementary accent to the flowers not to dominate the card. As I was making the card I decided a shaker for my bloom jar was a must and I filled that with an assortment of coloured sequins.

The JAI DT have created a gorgeous array of cards this week so do go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge!
