Just Add Ink #372 Colour Challenge

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Hope you are having a fabulous day. My afternoon was spent unpacking my pre-order goodies!! So exciting.  All the dies got placed on a  magnetic sheet and the stamp sets found a home (alphabetically) on the "current" shelf. They are all snug in their new forever home lol
Guess what.....It's challenge time over at Just Add Ink. Yipeeeee!  And, I am still a guest designer, the JAI DT have not booted me yet (insert squishy face) Anywho, enough gas bagging, this weeks challenge is a colour combination using Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink and Pool Party.
Such a pretty combination don't you think? I instantly thought cottage gardens and flower bouquets. However, when I sat down at my desk I changed my mind, and decided to not go down the pretty Floral pathway, instead opting for something with lots of angles. This was the result

I really love these diamonds and wanted to make a few cards with the gorgeous die cuts as my focal point.The card front has been stamped with a splatter image from the sadly retired Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, in Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, Pool Party and Black Momento inks.

The Eclectic Thinlits were used to cut the diamonds from gold foil card. The backs of the diamonds were cut from the 3 different challenge colours and adhered to the gold foil with tombow.
I used the sentiment from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set, heat embossed in white on black card. I then backed the sentiment with gold foil card and adhered to card front with tombow.

The diamonds have been attached with dimensionals and a few gold sequins were added to finish it off. Quick, simple and easy to reproduce.

Why not join us and play along with the challenge over at Just Add Ink its such a gorgeous colour combination and its really easy to enter. Also, dont forget to stop by and check out all the amazing creations the talented Design Team have provided for inspiration.
Until next time, stay awesome


  1. Wow Jackie. Love everything about your card - from the splashes of colour in the background to the layout ... oh and the 3 diamonds of course!

  2. This is such a cool card! All the angles work so well, and the touches of gold are perfect.

    Definitely no booting you off the team now!

  3. Such a fabulous card Jackie! Your use of the shiny diamonds is really brilliant and I love your layout and use of black that allows the gold and white to pop. So clever! xx

  4. What a great use of the challenge colours! The diamonds look fabulous cascading down the card and the spatters are such a cool look!

  5. Love your take on the colours Jackie, so fun and on trend! This set hadn't really grabbed me until now...Love it! xx

  6. Love the bold, modern,graphic look you've created with the colours, Jackie. The diamonds look fab teamed with gold & the sentiment works so well too.

  7. This is amazing! I love how you've turned such a soft palette into this really bold design, especially those wonderful diamonds!

  8. Well angles was certainly an awesome way to go Jackie - these sparkly gems are just stunning! Love how they drift up the card amidst a cloud of bubbles. x
