Just Add Ink #212....Colour Challenge!



 JAI 212

Hey there!....It's time for another fun Just Add Ink challenge and these great colours were chosen by Delys, I had lot's of inky fun creating with them...
I started by clear embossing the flowers from the "Too Kind Set" and used sponges to lay down the colours on Very Vanilla Cardstock, applying Bermuda Bay first to one half and Crumbcake to the other, making it darker at the bottom with some Baked Brown Sugar.
To create the speckles, a fun technique that l love using, l sprayed some water into my hand and flicked it all over, leaving it to wick out and dry naturally....Pretty cool huh!


The design team have created some fabulous samples using this great colour combination, don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check them out!

"Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend"
All supplies used are Stampin Up!
