JAI #218: Just Add Colour


This month we say goodbye to retiring products from the current Annual Catalogue, so at Just Add Ink we though we'd challenge you to use some of your retiring colours.  Your creation should use three of the retiring In Colours.  Kim is the brains behind this fabulous challenge!

I decided to go with Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and Midnight Muse on my card.

I was really pleased with how the background turned out on this card.  After I made it though I was a bit stumped as to what to put over the top of it.  Hubby suggested I go with a curved shape to offset all of the angles of the hexagons.  I think he was right!

The larger butterfly is from the retiring Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, which I will miss a lot.

I think the two pinks look very pretty layered together on the butterflies - what do you think?

I hope you can play along with us this week.  Which are your favourite colours from the retiring In Colours?  See you over at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,



  1. Good pick on the panel R. Great effect Tina, you have so much patience, it's very cool!..:0)xxx

  2. The punched hexagon background looks deceptively simple Tina. Love how you arranged the colours in bands! Your DH obviously gives good advice too :)

  3. Wow your hubby was totally right that circle looks fab as the focal point! The background looks amazing too.

  4. Yep, DH was right on the money with his advise. Sign that man up!! Love all the pink against the blue Tina. You have a lot of patience to adhere all those hexagons one at a time! Looks fab ♥

  5. Totally agree that your husbands design idea is perfect for this card. It's a stunning card. Chantell x x
