At Just Add Ink this week we have a colour challenge.
I must say I did find it challenging. It’s the first time I’ve used any of the new in-colours and I haven’t bought any inks or markers (as yet anyway). I did have the cardstock though and so I decided to white emboss over the top of it.
I used a few new goodies from my big SU spending spree in September on this card.
The ornament keepsakes bundle, delicate designs folders, good cheer wheel and Blissful Bird.
When I had worked out my order and was just about to submit it, I looked down at the catalogue which was open at the page with this bird on it and on a whim decided I had to add it too. I hadn’t even noticed it before, even though I’d looked over the catalogue hundreds of times and agonised over what to buy. Possibly because it is on the same page as the stamp I wanted most of all - Poppies. Anyway when I saw it I thought it would make a great Christmas bird, even though SU haven’t put it in the Christmas section, that’s what I think it is. I thought he might look great holding one of the ornaments.
Stamps : Ornament Keepsakes, Blissful Bird, Good Cheer wheel
Card : confetti white, basic grey, starfruit
Ink : white
Other : white ep, big shot, holiday ornaments, delicate designs ef, bakers twine, sewing machine, bird punch, square lattice ef
It’s an unusual colour choice for a Christmas card I know, but I think it works.
Please take a look at what the rest of the team at JAI have come up with this week. There are some gorgeous creations to inspire you.
