Just Add Ink #382...Colour!

Gosh the weeks are flying by! It's Friday again and another week closer to the silly season...Eeek! 

Being Friday means we have a new challenge over at Just Add Ink and Patrice has given us this gorgeous colour combination to play with.

I have used a combination of the (retired) Christmas Greetings thinlits, Pretty Pines thinlits and the hostess set Seasons of Whimsy to create a Christmas card in an alternate colourway.
To colour the baubles l used inkpads and aquapainter and added lots of silver details for sparkle and a silver gel pen from my stash.

The design team have combined the colours to create some awesome projects, so pop over and be inspired!

Colour INKspiration #19

 Colour INKspiration

It's hop time again over at Colour INKspiration  and l'm loving the colour palette this week. 
Did you just hop here from the uber talented Jackie Aitken, wasn't her project just gorgeous!
To see the rest of the crews projects, just keep on hopping by clicking the "Next" banner below or hit the Colour Ink banner or link above to be redirected to the Facebook page.
I had been wanting to play with the Graceful Garden images for awhile and these colours seemed perfect. I went with the "NO LINE" colouring technique using my markers on the outlines on some Shimmer cardstock and coloured with inkpads and Aqua pen....Such a fun way to create a softer coloured effect.

Next on the hop is Rebecca Scurr with her gorgeous Metallic project.

Just Add Ink #378...Texture!

Hey there!
It's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge and this week Di has challenged us to "Add Texture" to our projects.

My texture elements are the Woodgrain (retired) embossing folder and some silver glimmer paper. I have combined these with some pretty dsp (retired). I'm on a mission to use up lots of my dsp stash that's taking up space that l need for new designs...self confessed paper hoarder here...:0) So you may see a few retired dsp projects coming up!

Coffee Cafe....Love it! I can't believe l was so slow to the party on this baby, it's really cool! I've been having lots of fun playing with this set/bundle, it really is very versatile for all genders.

The design team have created some fab textural projects, so don't forget to click the Just Add Ink link above and go take a peek at those.

Just Add Ink #377...Colour!

OK, I'm officially done with this miserable Melbourne weather....I know it's good for the catchments etc...But Geez, enough already! Anyone else ready to pack up and head north to warmer climates?

OK, I'll stop moaning now and get on with the reason I'm posting. This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun colour combo from Rochelle. I'm loving these colour together, LLT is a big fave, but it's a real pain to photograph...or is it just me..Hmmm!
With the release of the new Stampin Up Holiday catelogue, l was a bit excited to see this pretty bauble set "Seasons of Whimsy" as a hostess set.
It was lovely to stamp with having such fine lines and detail and the fine sentiment font is really pretty too!
You can see better in the first pic all of the sparkly detail. I used some silver detail on the bauble caps and the rest got a very sparkly dose of dazzling details.

The JAI girls have some gorgeous inspiration using these colours, so click the link and check them out!
