JAI #639 Just Add a Colour Combo

I do so love me some colour and the combo this week at Just Add Ink challenges is totally gorgeous!

For my mixed media slimline card I've created a watercolour effect with the challenge colours and added some neutrals of gold, black and cream.

I began with gold embossing the clocks then spritzed with water and used a paintbrush to add my colours, drying between layers. A little background stamping which I again spritzed. The butterflies were given a similar treatment and I used gold wax on the accent pieces and archival ink on the bodies. I've splattered with polished pink ink and white paint to tie all the elements together. 

Materials used:
  • stamps - Welcome Home Clocks (Stamperia), Tiny Text (Tim Holtz), Clocks (Paper Rose), Entomology (Tim Holtz)
  • card - watercolour, brushed gold, basic black, basic white
  • inks - polished pink, Tahitian tide, orchid oasis, Versamark, black soot archival
  • other - gold embossing powder, heat tool, water spritzer, MISTI, white embossing powder, paint brushes, picket fence distress paint, Brushstroke Butterflies dies (Tim Holtz), Big Shot, slimline stitched rectangle die (Paper Rose), Dimensionals, craft foam, vintage gold metallique wax (Art Alchemy)

Do pop over to the JAI blog to check out my team mates' creations and of course we'd love to see your own efforts in our challenge gallery.

Thanks for stopping by.
