Just Add Ink #699 - Colour Combo

You all know I love to play with colour, so even though it's not my week to create for Just Add Ink's new challenge, I couldn't resist.

Coastal cabana always makes me think 'water', especially paired with another blue. Toss in some berry and my mind immediately says 'tropical' - what can I say, it's just how I'm wired, lol. So I now had the perfect opportunity to play with some new dies to make a card for someone going on holiday.

I began with ink blending, masking off an area to do the water with coastal cabana 'undercoat', then starry sky. That was then covered while I did the sky with a light blending of berry burst and starry sky, using a small circle mask for the moon. There are two layers to the trees as well as the porthole window and I embossed the blue background for added interest. My die-cut sentiment is also two layers and features more ink blending to give an ombre effect.

Materials used:
  • dies - Coastal Escape View (Spellbinders), Playful Alphabet (Stampin' Up)
  • card - basic white, basic black, starry sky, gold foil
  • inks - coastal cabana, starry sky, berry burst
  • other - 3/4" circle punch, masking paper, blending brushes, Simple Stripes embossing folder (SU), Big Shot, gold brads, Dimensionals, craft foam, white gel pen

Relaxing in the tropics looking at a beautiful sunset sounds awfully good to me! Where do I sign up? 😁 What do these colours make you think of? We'd love you to share your creations with us over on the Just Add Ink blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
