Just Add Ink #377 Colour Challenge

Hello & welcome to another Just Add Ink Challenge.

#377 is a colour combination chosen for us by Rochelle.

My design team friends are loving Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party this week!  Today it’s paired with Dapper Denim.

I love these three colours, but together they were a wee challenge – but that’s what it’s all about, right?

I decided to stick with simple – lots of white space to balance those colours!

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with 2 new catalogues in the space of 4 months, so it’s sometimes refreshing and stabilising to go back to old favourites.

Many of the products I’ve used in this card are carryover favourites from the previous Annual Catalogue.

Sheltering Tree stamp set, Classic Label Punch, Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the new for 2017 embossing folder – Garden Trellis.

I also realised when I was writing this post up, that despite making this card & my Colour INKspiration card at different times of the week, they have quite similar features!  I definitely have a style!!!

I am forever hopeful that it’s a love of this style that keeps you visiting & subscribing!

One of my go-to techniques for using embossing folders is to emboss the whole card – not just the front.

This means you need to add an extra piece of cardstock on the inside for writing on, but I love the luxurious feel of both the extra embossing and the matted inside.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my same-same-but-different Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party card today.

For more beautiful cards using these three colours, pop over to the Just Add Ink blog to see all the design team cards.

While you are there, you may also want to join the challenge by uploading your own Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party & Dapper Denim creation.

Thanks, as always, for taking the time to visit me!
