This week at Just Add Ink, Mae has come up with a colour combo that really sets the mind thinking!  Here are the colours that we challenge you to use together on a card or other papercraft project:

It took me a while to settle on a good balance of colour, but I am really thrilled with the final result. 

I stamped Pleasant Poppies in Soft Suede ink, and decided to leave the stems uncoloured, to make the flowers the feature.  Using my Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay markers, I coloured the poppies.  A bit of two-way glue pen was applied to the pink flowers and buds, so Dazzling Diamonds glitter could be added.  Pink and sparkle were necessary for this birthday girl's card!

.... and the simply stamped inside of the card:

Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, A Dozen Thoughts, Four You
Card: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Ink: Soft Suede stampin' pad, Blushing Bride stampin' pad and marker, Bermuda Bay marker
Other: Blender pen, Two-Way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Blushing Bride chevron ribbon, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 1 1/2" Circle punch (not SU!), 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, Basic Rhinestones, glue dots
We'd love to see your creations using this colour combo, so please join in the fun over at Just Add Ink!  There are some amazing Design Team samples to inspire you. :)
