JAI #180: Just Add Colouring


Gee, the weeks are flying by!

Time for another Just Add Ink challenge! This week Nikki has challenged us to add colouring to our projects.  You can watercolour, use markers, crayons, whatever you like to colour your image.  I chose to watercolour on my card.

I used a new stamp set called You're My Hero.  It's a great one for boys cards.  I also used my new favourite set Gorgeous Grunge to create the background.

I used watercolour paper to stamp on and colour the image.  It's fabulous quality paper, perfect for watercolouring. I used my Real Red and Daffodil Delight inkpads to colour the image.

I also coloured the police car in the stamp set using Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight. A cute finishing touch for the inside of the card.

Stamps: You're My Hero, Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Basic Grey, Stazon
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Watercolour Paper
Other: Big Shot, Circles Framelits Dies, Aqua Painter, Paper Snips, Dimensionals

I hope you can play along with us this week at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,
