JAI47 - A Tricky Colour Combo

I found this week's Just Add Ink Colour Challenge really tough.  It was the Tempting Turquoise that threw me.  No matter what I tried, it just looked out of place.  So what I've ended up with is nothing like what I was going for...

Yep, another CAS card.  I commented to my hubby recently that if I keep it up with so many CAS cards, how long until I start photographing plain cardstock??  ;-)

Stamp sets - Awash With Flowers
Cardstock - Naturals Ivory, Tempting Turquoise, Watercolour paper
Inks - Black Stazon, Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey
Accessories - Daffodil Delight satin ribbon, red twine, Aqua painter, dimensionals



  1. This is a stunning card DD! Love the ribbon treatment too! I would never have thought to keep it mostly plain and just use a splash of the colours, it's perfect :) I found them all a bit overwhelming together. lol

  2. WOW did you really colour this with an Aqua Painter?! It's awesome! Love the ribbon as usual!!

  3. Oh, but you do these CAS cards so well! I know what you mean about the Turquiose, that was throwing me too, but I love how you solved it by using the colour as a frame - very clever!

  4. Gorgeous card once again Danielle. Love the ribbon and watercolouring. Lol about the CAS card comment.

  5. Beautiful colouring and very clever to stick with a fairly plain canvas and concentrate your colours in one spot - looks a tricky combo.

  6. Another great DD card! I am really liking how you are using your ribbons on the cards lately, nice effect.

  7. The bright splash of colour looks wonderful against the neutral background. Your ribbon as usual is something special :)
