JAI 29 - Colour Challenge


It has been a lovely sunny winters day in Melbourne today (Sunday) and I love having the sunshine flooding into my craft room.  I can see 'Pretty in Pink' blossom on trees in the neighbour's yard from my window (I'm upstairs) so spring must be coming soon, thankfully. I'm so looking forward to having more daylight to use after work.

Today I have a card based on the Just Add Ink #29 - Colour Challenge using the colours below. 


I love the richness of Rose Red and Always Artichoke and with Kraft and Very Vanilla these make a great combination for Christmas cards as well.

I have used Stampin' Write markers directly to the rubber of the lovely floral spray image from the 'Thoughts & Prayers' stamp set onto Very Vanilla. This has been sponged, matted and layered on more sponged layers! On the Always Artichoke layer I have dry embossed the border and then lightly sponged over it with a dauber to highlight the design. Anyway here it is.
