Happy Friday everyone and welcome to a new challenge at Just Add Ink! We have a fantastic colour combo for you this week:
I get a little scared when I see brown in a colour combo, as I don't use it much at all but suddenly realised that brown is used in more than just ink and card stock. For example tree branches:
The idea of tree branches gave me the chance to use a stamp set that has been sitting looking at me for the past few weeks!!
I cut a panel of white CS and stamped the branch using Altenew 'Dark Chocolate' ink. I then stamped the solid flower images using Waffle Flower 'Safe Choice' and then the second layer in Waffle Flower 'Happy Go Lucky'. Unfortunately the camera didn't pick up the layering details (which look great in person) so need to keep this in mind when using pale colours again with this set.
I adhered the panel to a slightly larger black CS panel and then to the card front. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on a strip of black CS and popped up on foam tape. And for a bit of interest I added some very pale pearls to the centre of each flower.
The floral stamps are from Altenew 'Vintage Flowers', as is the sentiment but from a freebie from a craft magazine.
I'm going to link this to the Uniko Studio Challenge # 34 where their theme is 'CAS Flowers'.
And will also link to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
You have until next Wednesday August 3rd to link your projects to the Just Add Ink and if you need any help in the 'ideas' department the rest of the Design Team have some stunning projects on the blog just for you. Looking forward to seeing your creations in the Gallery!!
