Just Add Ink #524 Colourful Christmas

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! We are almost a third of the way through Spring and the blossoms and colours are beautiful when we are out walking. Lots of inspiration from nature around.

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week we have a gorgeous and versatile colour combo from Jo. Our design team have made a wonderful array of cards to inspire you so I hope that you can pop on over to take a peek and we'd love you to join us! 

I used the colours to make two versions of a Clean and Simple Christmas card. 
The lovely Peace & Joy bundle just arrived in my craft space and that helped my decision on what theme to use with these pretty colours. They are not a combo I have used before but now that I have tried them I will use them again as they are so pretty together!

I started by tracing inside a circle die to give a circle base to follow and then used the Pine stamp, 2nd generation to create the base layer of the wreath. Further branches and holly berries were fussy cut and added for dimension. 
The top layer of Peace is Copper Foil layered over Merry Merlot and a shadow of Rococo Rose. A few scattered sequins and this version is complete.

Version Two has just a little more stamping....and I'm not sure which one I prefer. You can see the Copper Peace a little better in it though. Which one do you like better?

Card stock: Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose, Copper Foil, Whisper White
Inks: Mint Macaron, Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose
Stamps:Peace & Joy
Accessories: Die cutting machine,  Joy Dies, Metallic Sequins, Wink of Stella

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you can pop on over to Just Add Ink and join us and I look forward to seeing what you will create with these pretty colours this week.

Til next time,
