Just Add Ink Challenge # 37


The new Just Add Ink challenge this week is a colour challenge, and I must say I really love these beautiful colours together:


This is the card I have made for this challenge:



List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Always Artichoke (Textured), Whisper White, Old Olive, Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Ink: Old Olive Classic Ink (SU)
Accessories: Theatre Ribbon Originals - Retired (SU), Crimper, Hidden Garden Rub-Ons - Retired (SU), Orange Zest and Raspberry Fizz Vintage Buttons (PTI), Crystal Effects (SU),  Mounting Foam (Kaisercraft), Mini Glue Dots (SU), Sticky Strip (SU) and SNAIL Adhesive (SU).


I picked up the Mounting Foam dots from Eckersley's yesterday. They are almost twice as thick as dimensionals...I'm in foam heaven (except for cost: roughly the same price as dimensionals...less in the packet though). I've also applied crystal effects to all the leaves on the flower stems. Unfortunately the ink has kind of run into the CE...I probably should have clear embossed it instead.

Well, it's just after 11 am...and I am still in my PJs (SLACKER), and have just finished watching The Last Song. Since I was sobbing uncontrollably for the last quarter of the movie (I know, I know... insert rolling eyes smiley here) I am now running out of tissues! I've also run out of Panadol...so I'm off to get changed now and rectify this perilous situation.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend,

Love it Sam. I'm having a SU party in November and pumpkin pie is on my (long) list. I watched the last song a few days ago too while the boys were paintballing for their footy trip, howled like a baby. No way I could enjoy a good chick flick with the boys around. Thanks for the blog comment. The tree is one of Kerri bradfords designs cut will my silhouette. Her files can be cut by most diecut machines including the cricut or can just be printed and cut by hand. If you don't have a machine let me know and I'll cut you a few,email me. Are your kids still on holidays?
Cheers
Sue

Hi Sam,
you make the combo look easy! Great job on the crimping - I always struggle to keep it straight. Love your bright cheery button flowers - perfect antidote for the rainy day up here. Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

This is such a beautful card. I love the buttons as flowers. In your PJ'S by 11 what never!!! I can't get away with that. I guess some people are lucky like that. I would love to still be in my pjs by 11 and still in bed. That would be the life.

Hey Sam

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you are getting back into the action too. With some PTI goodness no less! Loving the felt flowers and the buttons in the next post. Regarding felt (WARNING! enabling alert!!) - have you found Felt on the Fly on Etsy. She sells sheets of 100% wool felt and I managed to convince her to do some colour matching of her felt to SU colours - you can see that on her blog. She has said she has done the same for PTI colours too.

Cheers
Sharon
