Just Add Ink #143

This week at Just Add Ink it's a colour challenge. 

Now when I first saw these colours together I thought "Ummmmm oookaaaayy" and had absolutely no idea how to balance them and create a card in a style I'm comfortable with.  Then I thought "Hang on- isn't the whole point of these challenges to get me OUT of my comfort zone?"  Anyway, once I started to flip through my stamp sets and think about who I could make a card for, I quickly decided to do a masculine Birthday card.

I'm still not sure about the finished card- I think if I was to get a do-over, I would use the same design but use the colours differently, and also replace the orange and white baker's twine with a button in that space next to the sentiment.


  1. Louise, this is a fantastic card - no alterations necessary! I really like how you've worked in the colours together. Love the texture, the twine, and the stamps. Great job with this challenge! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week :)

  2. Hi Louise...you just must be nice! Hahaha! I was wondering what to do with these colours too! I'm still not sure about my card! I knew the stamp I wanted to use & went from there! You've simply nailed it! Love it. They are great colours for a masculine card....I didn't like them at first, but might even use this combo again!
