JAI302 and FMS227

The colour challenge  at Just Add Ink this week is an interesting one, using two purples and a neutral.

I'm pairing it up with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, which I adore - it's my kind of sketch!

I did discover that, when sponged lightly, Blackberry Bliss and Rich Razzleberry are almost indistinguishable. It's Blackberry Bliss sponged around the edge of the masked music stamp and the edges of the white panel which works well to link the two purples. 

I also can't quite believe that finally, I've taken a photo where the Wink of Stella did show! It's on the underwing of the dragonfly.

Update: So pleased that this card got an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink.

Card: Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe, Rich Razzleberry, DSP from the Moonlight stack.
Stamps: Heidi Swapp Music, Clearly Besotted Say it in Style
Inks: Blackberry Bliss, Tip Top Taupe
Other: Spellbinders Dragon Delight die, clear Wink of Stella, rhinestones, dimensionals, sponges

  3. Beautiful interpretation of the sketch! I love that sponged circle and pretty dragonfly. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  4. Jan, your card is lovely! The music notes look fabulous masked and sponged. I too found the Blackberry and Razzleberry quite similar when I was water colouring my card for this challenge. Glad it wasn't only me. Thanks for sharing with us once again at Just Add Ink. x

  5. What a beautiful card Jan! So CAS but stunning! Love the sponged circle and then the die-ut dragonfly over top. Love the subtle touches of Wink. Well done on being able to get that to shimmer in your photo. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo

  6. This is really lovely Jan! You've combined both challenges perfectly with the way you've layered yours images and added the challenge colours. Thanks for joining us at FMS & JAI this week!

  7. This is lovely Jan! I love how detailed the dragonfly is (and sparkly too ;) and in contrast how CAS the rest of the card is. You really used the colours beautifully! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  8. This is stunning Jan! I love how he highlighted the music and yr paper pieced dragonfly is so gorgeous and sparkly! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink again :-)
