Just Add Ink 252

There's also a colour challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo are colours that I don't often use but they look great with Smoky Slate so I was tempted into playing with them. I haven't used the umbrella girl from Beautiful You very much but when I have, I've been drawn to use watercolour and it's happened today too.

I think it does have an encouraging feel, so I'm happy with how this card has turned out.

Update: Delighted to get an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink

Card: Smoky Slate base,  Flirty Flamingo, Watercolour paper, DSP from Carried Away, Whisper White
Stamps: Beautiful You
Inks: Flirty Flamingo and Stampin' Write marker, Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray Stampin' Write marker, Black Stazon
Other:  Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon, Tempting Turquoise enamel shapes, Stitched oval framelit, dimensionals, aquapainter


  1. Beautiful use of the challenge colours, Jan. The Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop to your image, and the enamel shapes and ribbon add lovely pops of colour. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. This is very pretty Jan! I love the highlights you've added to your lovely lady and the touches of shading and little pops of colour are beautiful accompaniments. So glad you were "tempted" to join us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  3. Stunning - I just love this stamp set. I really like that you have used the dotty paper - kinda represents the rain. Chantell Just Add Ink

  4. Oh I LOVE how you've used the challenge colours, Jan. The grey paper really makes the flirty & turquoise pop. Love how you've designed the sentiment too. Glad you could play along at JAI.
    Di :)

  5. This is stunning Jan! I love how you have used the colour to draw the eye in towards the girl - and the watercoloring is so atmospheric. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  6. Gorgeous card, Jan! Beautiful image and by highlighting it with the gray watercolor wash, you've really made it stand out. Thanks so much for joining us at Just Add Ink.
