Just Add Ink - Challenge #29





I am so pleased I managed to get some crafting in today. And even happier that I was able to do the current challenge on Just Add Ink (see blinky on right). This week the challenge is a colour challenge.

I just think these colours are lovely together, a real romantic combination. So I knew I had to do something shabby chic'! I used the beautiful Fresh Cuts stamp set, firstly inking it up with the Always Artichoke and then cleaning off some of the ink over the flowers then sponged Rose Red directly on to the stamp. I stamp this onto Very Vanilla. I re inked the stamp again in Always Artichoke and stamped it on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and cut out the leaf branch.
The words '{thank you}' is from the Occasional All stamp set and I mounted it on a piece of kraft that I die cut using my LOVELY Big Shot with the 'Lots of Tags' Sizzlits die that is in the current Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. This mini only goes to the end of August which isn't that far away so contact me ASAP if there is anything you NEED to order, along with anything from the Last Chance list (did you see the discounted products in the previous post?)
I am pleased how the card came out - I hope you like it to, thanks for visiting my blog.
