I've scheduled this post to publish while I am out of the country for a few days - hopefully I will return home to see that it has gone smoothly!

Kim has come up with a really lovely colour combination for this week's Just Add Ink challenge:

I have once again had a play with Stampin' Up!'s Natural Composition Designer Series Paper.  It is a gorgeous, heavyweight, paper with clear-embossed designs on kraft-coloured backgrounds.  For this week's challenge, I cut a panel of the floral DSP from the pack, and used my Pretty in Pink marker to colour a few of the flowers.  Here's a close-up:

After colouring the petals with my marker, I added some white dots to the flower centres, using a gel pen.  Clear Itty Bitty Buttons were then adhered to the flower centres.  Here is the card in its entirety:

Stamps: Petite Pairs
Card: Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
DSP: Natural Composition Designer Series Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake stampin' pads, Pretty in Pink marker, Signo White gel pen
Other: Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Pool Party seam binding, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Itty Bitty Buttons, glue dots, edge distressing tool, sponge dauber
The rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have come up with some gorgeous cards using this colour combination - be sure to check them out.  We hope you'll be inspired to play along with us!


  1. Love it Christine.It has a wonderful vintage feel about it. The pink is so soft on the kraft and the bitty buttons really draw your eyes to them. xxx

  2. What a clever way to use the DSP.

  3. The the way you have coloured this Christine, it's really lovely and clever too! xxx

  4. This is such a soft and pretty card Christine. I really love how you've colours the flowers from this naturals composition DSP and added the buttons.

  5. Love the colour combo and a cool idea to colour the DSP, Christine. Haven't tried the Natural Composition DSP yet - on my New Year to do list!
