Wow, where did that week go? It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting at my computer typing up last week's Just Add Ink post. I swear that time goes faster at this end of the year. Anyway, this week at Just Add Ink Kim has challenged us to use a colour combination in our papercrafting.
Now, I don't know about you, but I was always taught that you don't mix red and pink, or blue and green for that matter. The best part of being a grown up is that you get to break the rules whenever you like, and this combination ended up being really fun to work with.
I should add that I'm really not much of a rebel, so when I break the rules it's more like I bend them, or dip a toe over the line. In this case I decided to opt for a tiny splash of Real Red, Strawberry Slush and Wild Wasabi. By keeping most of the card Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White I was able to avoid the colours clashing with each other.
The card didn't look quite finished with just the hearts and the sentiment on the circle, so I added a row of piercing to the circle and some rhinestones to the hearts. Done!
So I guess I cheated a little by leaving the Strawberry Slush and Wild Wasabi out of the middle, but I was nearly in hives over my rule breaking on the front of the card so I decided to go simple on the inside.
How are you going to bend or break the rules? Are you a rebel or not? I can't wait to see over at Just Add Ink.
Bye for now,
