I love trying out new colour combinations and one is sure to find a unique one while surfing around in the blogging world. This week was no different. Just Add Ink has a really unique and fun colour combination for this week's challenge:
You've got to try it to love it. There are a lot of different ways to interpret this and I encourage you to head over to the Just Add Ink blog to see what the design team and other entrants have come up with. I decided to ink up one of the new stamp sets from Stampin' Up's 2-14 Occasions catalogue, "Happy Watercolour" for this card.
I love the look that comes out from the "smudgy" stamp. It looks so much like one has taken a watercolour brush and done a test of colour on the page. I stamped these "smudges" in Pistachio Pudding and Crumb Cake. I stamped the dots and sentiment in gold (although it's hard to see here).
I tried one card with gold foil card stock as the vertical strip but personally prefer the burlap. You can decide for yourself though : )
In any case, it's a really fun colour combination to use and I'm certainly going to tuck it away for further use.
Here is a list of the supplies I used:
Stamp Sets: Happy Watercolour (Occasions 2014)
Ink and Card stock: Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Gold
Other: Burlap ribbon, linen thread, Perfect Polka Dots TIEF.
