Just Add Ink #519 Peace at Christmas

 Happy Friday everyone and welcome!! The signs of Spring are in the air with the Wattle (Aussie native flower) out in bloom and yellow pollen edging every puddle. It also means it's almost 4 months to Christmas as scary as that can sometimes sound for us card makers 😉

Just in time is this week's super pretty Just Add Ink Colour Challenge from Jo. These In Colour colours are suited to so many themes and subjects and we hope that you have as much as fun with them as we did. As always, if you don't have these exact ones you can substitute with the nearest colour you have but please no extra colours other than black, white or metallics.

I thought this pretty mix of cooler shades would suit a Winter Christmas card and then had a look through my stash of stamps and DSP. I am waiting on the lovely Coming Home set to arrive so in the meantime I turned to some retired DSP. It's "Just Add Colour" name sounds as though it was made for a Just Add Ink challenge! And so I coloured this with Copics using the closest colours to the challenge ones.

The trees are really pretty in real life. They are stamped with the image from Peaceful Pines (very similar to the new In the Pines) in Versamark and embossed with Shimmery White EP. It is perfect for a sparkly snow effect! The die cut Peace is also shimmery as is Diamond Glimmer paper. So now this first Christmas card for 2020 is complete.

Designer Series Paper: Just Add Colour (SAB)
