Just Add Ink #254 – Colour Challenge

This is week 2 for me as a guest designer with the Just Add Ink team.

Just Add Ink #254 is a colour challenge.


I think orange is such a polarising colour – generally you love it or avoid it.  I have to say I’m usually in the avoid group, but it was nice to be forced into using it for my pirate card.

The Hey, Valentine stamp set was a late Occasions catalogue purchase for me.  On & off the wish list for the past few months (love it … don’t make many v-day cards… so cute for kids cards … don’t love the sentiments…), I finally gave in to the cuter-than-cute pirate.  I H-A-D to have him.  And like most of my on-again-off-again purchases, there are no regrets.  I haven’t cut the sentiment off the stamp yet, but I am known to butcher up my stamps if I think it suits my stamping better.  For this card though, a bit of masking tape action and the ‘you’re a treasure’ remained un-inked.  The stamp survives another day!


With this being a tough pirate card, I roughed up the edges using the distress tool.  It’s a nice change from my usual clean lines.

It’d be great to see lots of cards submitted for Just Add Ink this week.  Get creative with the challenge colours and add your creation to the Just Add Ink blog.  Kelly x

  1. This is such a fun card Kelly, that any young pirate would love to receive! Beautiful colouring and grunge effects and I love his sweet pink cheeks too! So lovely to have you as a Guest Designer this month 🙂

  2. Hahaha this set has been on and off my wish list too, for much the same reasons. Still haven’t got it….

    This is the cutest little image and you’ve created such a great kids card! Love that you grunged it up a bit to keep with the ‘tough pirate’ theme. x
