Just Add Ink #519 Colour


Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink Jo is asking us to Just Add a Colour Combo, and it was certainly a favourite of mine! I used it to make my first official Christmas card of the year. Here are the colours. 

This is what I came up with a fun wintery scene. Perfectly timed as we have snow forecast for this weekend and I just couldn't pass up the chance to use my ice skating polar bear!

I watercolored a gradient background on watercolour paper, ensuring I knew where I wanted to place my mountain and hill elements so you would still see the change in colour above and below. I set that aside to dry and coloured in my polar bear using SU! Blends (alcohol markers). No die for this so trimmed him out, die cut my mountains and hill (embossing them to add texture). Before adhering my mountains onto the watercolour base I white heat embossed snowflakes. Finishing sparkly touches were a wink of Stella to my polar bear and an edging of shimmery crystal effects for my mountain and hill elements. Then I just had to add my sentiment and I was done!

I just love this mix of purple and blue, and thought it was perfect for this.
