Just Add Ink #266 - Just Add a Colour Combo
There's a new challenge over at Just Add Ink, and Nikki has given us the lovely colour combo of
Pink Pirouette, Night of Navy and Gold to work with this week. If you haven't already noticed, I'm super fond of beautiful flower images. So sad that Stippled Blossoms has retired, however, I'll be keeping it forever.
I don't keep a lot in the way of gold in my craft stash. I really didn't want to heat emboss my leaves, so I used an ink that would give a gold-ish tone. Did it work? The glittery gold enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye - Ashbury Heights.
The design team have created some absolutely beautiful cards using this colour combo, and I really can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. Head over to JAI, check out the inspiration and link up.
News with us this week....we're gearing up to put the house on the market. That means lots of sorting and packing and cleaning. Sigh. Lucky I'm not a hoarder (excluding craft items of course) and so it really isn't a huge job. Photos are being taken early next week then the 'open house' starts every weekend for a month. Not looking forward to that - living in it and keeping it presentable with toddlers and a teenager (not to mention the dog and the bunny) in tow just does my head in. Anyway it is what it is. Wish me luck!
Gorgeous Kid had his last pre expedition check this week. Everything is in order and two weeks yesterday he heads off to Borneo for what I expect will be a life changing experience.
