Just Add Ink #953 | Colour Combo

Oh I do love a colour challenge and this week's pick is a beauty. Bright happy and party like!  Well, I didn't go down the party route with my card (but I was very tempted to), instead I played to their deep and almost sultry side.  Let me know what you think!

Click the image above to join in the challenge (it's open to all! You don't need a blog, just somewhere that the photo is online so that it can be linked, eg Instagram.)

This simple card was so fun to make.  I even filmed a little video to show you just how easy and fun it is! But you'll have to check out my Instagram feed to see it.  If you don't already follow me, click here to take a look - and be sure to follow me while you're there.  I often post content there that you don't see on my blog.

I created the background using blending brushes and masking tape (I highly recommend Gina K's Masking Sheets).  When it was dry (it MUST be completely dry - I recommend leaving it a few hours even) I stamped my flower and then heat embossed over it to make it shine against the bold matt background.  Doesn't it stand out beautifully?

The Shaded Summer stamp set is a beauty.  If you don't already have it, I highly recommend adding it to your basket for your next purchase.  Don't forget to pop in some Classic Matte Dots in as well to sprinkle around and finish the card off.
