Vibrant Birthday for JAI #444

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! It has been a lovely week here in Melbourne - sunny days but not hot - we even have snow on nearby mountains! It seems a bit surreal just a week or so after 45 degree days but it sure does make getting out and about and sleeping so much easier so no complaints in our household 😊

It's time for our new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week Nikki has suggested a fun Colour challenge with a twist for us. Yes, YOU get to choose the third colour to add to Poppy Parade and Powder Pink!! The design team had a ball with this one and created a fabulous variety of cards with lots of different colour choices so we hope that you do too.

For my third colour, I chose Navy (Not Quite Navy to be exact) as I had these lovely vases from Vibrant Vases in mind for a first inking. I also needed a card for my fabulous SIL who just happens to be an excellent photographer and painter in her spare time so that is where the idea for the frame came from and the rest just sort of happened as it often does. 

So as not to add another colour apart from the basics and metallics, the leaves are gold - and sparkly as I used a gold Wink of Stella pen 😀 The flowers are coloured with ink pads and a Blender Pen which is not a method I'm practiced at so it's good to do. This new ribbon is a white version of the Burlap and I suspect it will get a lot of use as it can be coloured.

Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White (thick and standard), Poppy Parade, Gold Foil
Inks: Poppy Parade, Powder Pink, Versamark, Not Quite Navy
Stamps: Vibrant Vases, Well Said
Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Framelits, Well Written Framelits, Lace Dynamic Textures EF, Vases builder punch, White EP, Blender Pens, White EP, Metallic Sequins Assortment

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see what colours the rest of the design team chose and I look forward to seeing your projects this week too!

Happy stamping until next time,

  1. Gorgeous card, Jan! I love how the pinks really pop against the navy.
