Water Coloured Magnolia for JAI #474

Happy Friday and welcome! Our household had a min-break down to the beach last week for the first week of Spring but now we're back and getting into the swing of things again. Melbourne is living up to it's famous name for having Four Seasons in one day the last week has certainly seen a lot of that.

It's new challenge time at Just Add Ink and this week, Jo has given us this rich and delicious colour combo to use in our projects. The design team definitely seemed to enjoy this one and we hope that you do too! Please remember to only add black, white and/or metallics in your creations for this challenge, no other colours.

For my card this week, I followed the general theme of our design team and went for flowers :-)
But for something a little different, I embossed the smaller bloom and leaf images from Magnificent Magnolia with the new Shimmer White Embossing Powder. I find it has a slight silver shimmer rather than white but it does give a lovely sparkle! Then I coloured these with ink pads and an Aqua painter.

The background is also water coloured and I added a few splatters with my Aqua painter and Gold Wink of Stella. 
Underneath the gold birthday are 3 layers of Blackberry card stock for interest and texture.

You might notice that the Happy banner has a stitched side edge? That is easy to create, just cut the banner longer than you need and then use the same framelit to create the angle that you need and Hey Presto - custom stitched label created!

Card stock: Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose, Gold Foil
Inks: Blackberry Bliss, Rococo Rose, Mossy Meadow, Versamark
Stamps: Magnificent Magnolia, Well Said
Accessories: Big Shot, Magnolia Memory Dies, Well Written Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Gold Wink of Stella, Gold twine (retired), Shimmer Black and Shimmer White EP, Gold Pearls, Aqua Painter, Gold Washi Tape (retired)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the inspiration from the rest of the team and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this rich and beautiful colour combo too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Oh wowsa, Jan. This is so very beautiful. I love how you've layered up the flower cluster with different elements. The birthday really pops too with the extra layers of colour & shine.
    Love it!

  2. Jan, your bloom is stunning! It looks so pretty embossed in the shimmery white and watercoloured.
