Just Add Ink #479 Colour Combination

Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to Just Add Ink Challenge #479. This week we are playing with a fabulously pretty colour combination: Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzaz and Whisper White.

I must confess this is not the card I originally created for this challenge.....that card is possibly in the post! Yep, its gone and no photo's were I quickly whipped up this clean and simple creation using left over bits n pieces that didn't make it onto other projects.

At this time of year the majority of my paper crafting projects are Christmas themed. With loads of unused die cuts floating around my workspace, I decided to add the challenge colours to a few and chuck them together for this non traditional Christmas Wreath with a summery floral touch.

Pear Pizzaz ink has been applied to the wreath using an Aqua Painter. I did the same to the "tis the Season" die cut with Coastal Cabana ink, applying more ink to the bottom of the die cut to create an ombre effect.  The die cut started to "bend" a little so I dried it with a heat tool and ran it through the big shot using the "Subtle" embossing folder to flatten it out.

The flowers from Free As A Bird Stamp set have been stamped in Staz On and then coloured with Coastal Cabana ink.  Once dry, I curled them a little and then attached to the wreath. Before adhering the die cut sentiment to the wreath I attached a vellum circle.

I have embossed the Whisper White card front using the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder, attached strips of Coastal Cabana card to the top and bottom and then adhered it to the card base which has a strip of Pear Pizzaz DSP along the bottom.

To finish the card I added a few bluish coloured sequins and then quickly ran downstairs and photographed it for this blog post before I lost this one too! Lol

We would love for you and your crafty friends to play along, if you have a blog you can add your creation to the Just Add Ink gallery here. Don't have your own blog? No problem! Just send us an email  to with a photo attachment. We will upload it to our challenge entry blog for you.
