Well hello there,
this week has been a study of contrasts it started down at the beach as we finished off the school break with a little holiday down the coast and as soon as we got back plunged full on into the daily school and work routine. Before we headed to the coast; however, I did put together a project for this week's new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo from Jan. Here are the colours.
I found this colour mix to be quite intense so I decided to balance them out with a fair bit of white. It struck me they might be perfect for a sympathy card and having been caught out a couple of times when I should have sent one but haven't, I decided it was a good chance to make one to tuck away in my stash.
Having stamped and arranged a bunch of flowers I didn't want to cover them up too much but muting them a little with vellum was the perfect solution. So I white embossed my sentiment on the vellum strip. Given that I was intending this to be a sympathy card I have also kept bling to a minimum - there's shine from the embossing on the base mat and a scatter white sequins.
The rest of the team have come up with lots of (more cheerful) inspiration for you so do go check them out!
