Just Add Ink #307 - Just Add a Colour Combo
It's an exciting day, yay, yay, yay....I'm off to Sydney this afternoon to catch up with a few of my crafty friends for On Stage tomorrow. Totally looking forward to the reveal of the new annual catalogue and playing with a few new toys as well.
Over at Just Add Ink today we're kicking off a colour challenge that Nikki has given us this week -
Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Whisper White. I didn't find these colours difficult to work with at all - although I admit to this being the first time I've used Dijon which is a bit slack considering it's due to retire. My card came together in next to no time - thanks to Jan. I loved the birthday card she sent me recently so much that I CASEd (copy and share everything) it for this challenge. You can check out Jan's original to see what I mean. Is it not stunning?
I've given it the royal 'Wink' treatment, however, it was quite late in the day when I snapped this pic so the sun was going down and you can't see any of the gorgeous sparkly stuff here.
I'd love to see what you come up with for this challenge. Pop over to JAI and have a look at all the lovely design team creations. They're sure to inspire you and have you pulling out these colours, or similar, to whip up your own paper craft project.
So last week I mentioned we're off to New York soon....Hawaii is first up with a quick couple of days just to break up flights. We'll be staying right in the heart of Honolulu at Waikiki. My plan is to check out the beach, perhaps a little evening shopping....I might even rent a moped to get around. On our return from NY in late May we'll be staying on the island of Kailua-Kona (about 45 minutes by air from Honolulu). We chose this for the opportunity to unwind and completely relax after a hectic NY experience. My Mister will go diving and I'm going to give night snorkelling a try (eeeek I'm not a fan of large bodies of water). My main aim is to laze around with a book. I'll share a bit more about my NY plan next week.
Have an awesome weekend, and thanks for stopping by today.
