JAI #393: Just Add Colour


Welcome back to another week of Just Add Ink challenges. Did you enjoy the Blog Hop last week? I sure did! Usually the DT get to see what the rest of the team have created before the challenge posts go live, but for Blog Hops it's a secret until the day. This means it's just as much fun for us as it is for you!

This week Rochelle has set the challenge, and it's a colour combination.

How awesome is that mix of greens? Or would you call Lemon Lime twist a yellow? It really doesn't matter, just get it out and get stamping!

I thought the colour combo was very tropical, so I decided to get out my Fabulous Flamingo stamp set out and go to town with the palm fronds. I had memories of curtains in the bedroom I slept in at my Nanna's house having a similar colour scheme, although I think hers were bamboo, not palms. Nevermind, it was still lovely remembering fondly time spent with her.

I also stamped the LLT Label with the fronds. The top Whisper White layer looked a little bare with just the sentiment, so I ended up stamping a flamingo in Crumb Cake to take away from the stark white look. A couple of Gold Metallic Enamel dots and a Tranquil Tide Mini Tassel finished off the front.

A few more palm fronds on the inside and another sentiment, and it's done! The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set has some awesome sentiments.

I hope to see you over at the Just Add Ink blog, where you can see the rest of the Design Team cards and link up your card for the challenge.

Bye for now,



  1. Not the easiest selection of colours to work with but you've pulled it off beautifully Tina.

  2. Brilliant take on the colours, Tina. I just love the background & layered labels together. Nanna's curtains made me smile. I think my in-laws may have had a cane lounge with covers like that too.
    Hugs, D

  3. Love this Tina. Your Nanna's curtains were the perfect inspiration! The inside is as pretty as the outside!

  4. I've been on the fence about that stamp set, Tina. You just pushed me over! Your stamping is perfect!!

  5. Your Nannas house comment made me laugh Tina, funny how things return, this pattern is everywhere again.
    Love the the layered labels and tassle...very on trend! xx

  6. It does have a vintage curtain feel Tina but in the nicest way! I do love the pattern you created by stamping the fronds in all the colours - so much texture! xxx

  7. Such a lovely memory to have Tina! I love how you've used the palm to create such a beautiful background and carried it though your label layers. Such a fabulous way to use the colours and that tassel is such an elegant addition too. xx

  8. I love the tropical look you’ve gone with for this card Tina - it’s so fun! 😁 x
