Just Add Ink #387 | Colour Combination

With just over a month til the big day, Nikki is officially kicking off Christmas crafts with this Christmassy colour combination for our Just Add Ink challenge.

There’s nothing like red, green & white to get you in the Christmas mood!

Of course, there’s nothing limiting you to Christmas!  I’d love to see some amazing creations for other seasons.

I was unable to break out of the Christmas mold, and used one of my favourite new bundles – Musical Season.

All colour challenges have the option to add any neutral or metallic, so you’ll see some variation in the design team projects with the additional of these colours.

I’ve added in an embossed Crumb Cake base (using the Ruffled Embossing Folder), a little drummer boy in Archival Black and some (sadly retired) gold twine.

The Garden Green layer across the middle of the card is made by tearing some copy paper and using this to cover the top & bottom of the Whisper White cardstock.  I then coloured in Garden Green ink using my brayer and stamped the Sheet Music stamp over the top in Black Archival ink.

This technique is fun for a variety of cards, but I love that I can extend the music theme for this card.

I just can’t give it to someone too musical – no one that can actually read the music notes!!  I believe the Sheet Music stamp is the music for Fur Elise, which is not that Christmassy!!!


Please join us over at the Just Add Ink blog to see all the design team creations and add your red, white & green masterpiece.

  1. LOL, don’t send it to me then, as I used to spend hours on the piano playing Fur Elise! It’s a fabulous card, and despite it not being Christmassy, the stamp works beautifully as a background for the drummer boy.
