JAI #228 Colour Combo Challenge

Hello Crafters,

Today I am feeling rather miserable with a cold along with my two girls who are both home from school, but I needed to dose up on tablets and do some creating, even if it was only 1 card!

I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Colour Combination Challenge JAI#228.

I started with this idea, but it soon became obvious that maybe they didn’t quite look like feathers when Miss 5 says to me “I love the bunny ears mummy”!

Anyway, I carried on but wasn’t completely happy with this card, as all I could see was bunny ears, but I do love the simply pressed clay flower coloured with blackberry bliss ink and covered with crystal effects.

I sponged the insert of the card using the front panel before adhering it to the card!

Anyway, I had to go ahead with the idea to create an Easter card, as the bunny ears just couldn’t leave my mind! So here is what I came up with using the same colour combo.

The grass and the whiskers were created using the fringing scissors!

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

  1. Both cards are great. I love the idea of the DSP in the background on the first one and your pressed flower is lovely and glossy. Your bunny is cute too. Chantell JAI
