Just Add Ink #494....Just Add a Colour Combo....pic heavy

Happy Friday ~

Welcome to a new challenge week at Just Add Ink. Di has given us a really pretty, soft colour combo to use - Smoky Slate, Soft Sea Foam & Petal Pink.

I went with a Very Vanilla base for a nice change. I tend to use white as my go to usually. I've heat embossed the poppies & leaves on  Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper & coloured with an Aqua Painter. My final touches were a few gold sequins & a liberal spray of Shimmer Paint - which doesn't show up in my dodgy pic unfortunately (dodgy because it was very quickly snapped in fading light at the end of a busy day).

The design team have created so many pretty cards using this colour combo. Head over to the blog to check them out & join the challenge. Here is the graphic for you. You can use neutrals & metallics in your creation.

We had a busy weekend just gone. Gorgeous Kid had a Parade at Defence on Saturday. My two little people turned 8 on Sunday. GK was able to spend the day at home with us now that he's based at Duntroon in Canberra. We had lots of fun at Ten Pin Bowling & I made a cake. I'm certainly not a domestic goddess in the kitchen, but the kiddos loved it so that's the main thing!

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #492...Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday ~

Yay, we have a new sketch challenge kicking off today over at Just Add Ink. Jackie designed this one & I love it. So versatile!

It's no secret that the Happy Birthday To You stamp set is my very favourite of the SAB offerings this year. After stamping my image twice on Fluid 100 watercolour paper, I used Gorgeous Grape Ink in various strengths to colour. Then I cut the flowers on the second image with the new matching dies! So. Much. Quicker/Easier (than fussy cutting).

If you'd like to join the challenge fun head over to JAI, check out the inspiration from the design team & get cracking in your craft space. Here is the sketch:
