JAI #317: Just Add Colour


Yes, it's that time of the week again!

 This week Kim has put together a fantastic colour combination for our Just Add Ink challenge.

What a lovely collection of pinks and yellow/greens. I immediately thought florals, but when I looked at my new stamp sets I suddenly got a flash of inspiration.

I've used the new set, Mixed Drinks to create a row of cocktail-looking drinks. I stamped the glasses and was all set with my inkpads and blender pens to colour to get the look of the liquid, when I realised the stamp set had a liquid stamp. So easy!

After I'd finished stamping I went over the drinks with my clear Wink Of Stella pen to give them a bit of shimmer. Hopefully you can see it in the Rose Red cocktail on the left. I stamped the background of the card with another new stamp set - Playful Background. I thought the bubble-like stamp might help invoke thoughts of bubbly cocktails.

The cocktail on the inside is Flirty Flamingo. LOL, I just realised that Flirty Flamingo could be a cocktail name!

The rest of the Design Team at Just Add Ink have made some stunning cards this week using Kim's gorgeous colour combination. You can head over to the blog to check them out.

Bye for now,



  1. This is so very brilliant, Tina. I love your row of cocktails & the background is the perfect touch. Definitely keeping this one in mind for upcoming birthdays.
    Hugs, D :)

  2. I love your creative use of the challenge colours, Tina; this is an awesome card!

  3. The combo so works for drinks Tina - and Flirty Flamingo is a fabulous idea for a name! Adding the bubbly background was a great idea too - adds just the right atmosphere! xxx

  4. Great card Tina ! The background matches perfectly !

  5. Such a fabulous idea to create cocktails with the colours Tina! And the playful bubbly background looks made to go with these images :-) So clever! xx
