With Love and Hugs - Just Add Ink Challenge #704

Welcome back to another Just Add Ink challenge and we've a beautiful colour combo for you to play with. Don't forget you can add neutrals in black, grey, brown, white and vanilla as accents if you wish.

These colours are so soft and feminine and I immediately wanted to go with a shabby/vintage look for my card.

I began with die cutting the flower and leaves, colouring all the layers with different intensities of flirty flamingo and basic beige inks. The bird was next, coloured using lemon lolly and some greys. I very lightly tinted the mini postcard die with more beige and stamped in grey archival ink. The two small postage stamps have freesia backgrounds and some beige and grape inks on the stamped images. For my background I stamped with Versamark and embossed with white, then did a watercolour wash using the two purples. After everything was assembled, the finishing touch was some white paint splatters.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Postage Collage (Waffle Flower); Vintage Flora, Blooming View and Postmarked (Honey Bee Stamps)
  • card - Distress watercolour (Tim Holtz); basic white, fresh freesia and basic beige (Stampin Up)
  • dies - Bloom colorize (TH), Layered Chickadee (Simon Says Stamp), Postage Collage (WF), Nesting Postage (Hero Arts), Mini Postcard and Blooming View (HB)
  • inks - lemon lolly, flirty flamingo, fresh freesia, gorgeous grape, basic beige, smoky slate, basic grey (all SU), hickory smoke and black soot archival (TH), Versamark

  1. This is stunning so many little details from the wee collage script behind the postage stamps to the cute wee birdie. It really is amazing.
