JAI#54...Colour Challenge

Yay it's Friday ~

I'm not sure I should be so happy about that being that it is officially the last day of school holidays here in the ACT. I've been rather enjoying special time with Gorgeous Kid these past couple of weeks since he returned from his Qld holiday. It doesn't feel long enough.

I'm here to show you my Just Add Ink card for this week. We have a yummy colour challenge of Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Rose Red and Regal Rose this week - I do love pinks and chocolates. I often struggle with colour challenges so I fell back on my trusty Vintage Vogue stamps this week - have you noticed just how much I love love love that set!

I inked my larger flower in Rose Red. For the smaller flowers I used the Rock'n'Roll technique, inking Regal Rose first then 'rolling' the edge of my rubber onto the Rose Red ink pad - a little hard to see in the pic I think. My vine is inked in Soft Suede and I cut out some little Espresso leaves. A very straight forward card this week, but a perfect addition to my stash which is a little light on lately.

It's been very warm in Canberra over the past fortnight and it just doesn't make me want to sit and craft to be honest. It wasn't so long ago I was telling you how water logged we were becoming. Hate to say it but a day of cloud and rain would go down really well this weekend - perfect crafting weather in my opinion. The forecast is for temps to drop on Monday so I'm sure a lot of people are looking forward to the relief, particularly those who don't have aircon!

Anyway enough babble, go over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration and all that gorgeous pink. Hope you can join in with us this week.

Have a fabulous Friday!
