JAI #273: Just Add Colour


It's Friday, so you know what that means - time for a new Just Add Ink challenge.  This week we have a gorgeous colour combination for you.  I fell in love with this combo instantly!

How fabulous is it?  The beautiful, rich jewel colours are balanced wonderfully by the neutrals.  I've been wanting to play with Hey Girl since I got it a month or so ago, and I had a niece turning 11, so it was perfect timing!

I got my Blendabilites out to colour this one. I know, they are discontinued, so it's a bit of a tease, but I thought they'd work really well with the image. I used my Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write marker for the butterflies as there were no BB Blendies. To ground the images I used my Aqua Painter with some Crumb Cake ink.  It's difficult to tell, but I also used the Aqua Painter with some Soft Sky ink to do the sky.  The card just looked a bit funny stark white.

One of the things I love about this set is the cute little butterflies.  I especially love that you get two - one facing in each direction.

See you over at Just Add Ink!

Bye for now,



  1. Tina this is such a cute card! You did a great job created a background and I love how it has a little of a watercolour feel to it. I bet your niece loves it! xxx

  2. Such a fabulous card for your Niece Tina! The scene you have created is totally adorable and such a fabulous use of the colours! I love the way you've added the ground and touch of sky as a background too - just fabulous! xo

  3. She is such a cutie Tina, clever idea to go with colouring the colours, they're perfect for the images you've used. xxx

  4. Hi Tina. I love this stamp set and you have used it beautifully. Love it
