Just Add A Colour Combo JAI # 281

Happy Friday to you - the first three weeks of Spring have gone so fast!!  It is wonderful to watch the garden bursting into happy blooms and the summer veggies  planted last weekend are all growing well too :-)

And it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week Di  has asked us to Just Add Your Favourite Three Colours. So what are your favourite three colours? We would love to see!

I love the idea of this challenge - and so fun - use your favourites!! And then I realised I had too many favourite colours lol! I love pinks and corals and blues but thought might be a little bright all together! So I chose a favourite butterfly combo: Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise and Silver. Silver is one of my all time faves and the Turquoise is a new but growing one :-)

This DSP is from the Neutral Stack and has a real but subtle shine to the silver stripes that is beautiful! The background is created with the long" dotty" stamp in the set stamped repeatedly in Soft Sky with a little masking for shaping.

Card stock: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White (Thick), Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, Basic Black
Designer Series Paper: Neutral's Stack (Silver), Subtle's Stack (Soft Sky) 
Inks: Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, Versamark
Stamps: Watercolor Wngs, Crazy About You
Accessories: Big Shot, Bold Butterfly Framelits, White EP, Triple Banner Punch, Iced Rhinestones, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Thread

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment and pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with your Favourite Three Colourthis week too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. This is such a beautiful card, Jan. You "do" butterflies so well! This is a gorgeous colour combo.

  2. What a gorgeous colour combo Jan - it's so fresh and blue sky pretty - ideal for a butterfly! Love the accents of silver too - especially the glimmer butterfly layer. x

  3. Jan, I'm glad I am not the only one that found they had too many favourite colours. I love the glimmer paper on this card. It's a great stamp set too. Chantell x x

  4. Simply gorgeous Jan. Love your colour choices and amazing layout. Such a beautiful blingy butterfly.
