At Just Add Ink this week, we have a pretty gorgeous colour challenge, set by Kim.

I resisted the temptation to make a Christmas card, as I really wanted to ink up my Basket of Wishes stamp set, that has received no love!

I stamped the basket in Archival Basic Gray ink, then used a blender pen and my classic Basic Gray stampin' pad, to add colour.  After stamping the succulents in Old Olive ink, I also used a blender pen to add colour within the outlines.

It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I used a panel of Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, with a gorgeous embossed leaf pattern:

Another detail that I think is rather sweet, is a little metallic enamel heart, added to the basket:

I have listed below all the Stampin' Up! products used to make this card.  If you'd like to buy them for yourself, just click on one of the thumbnail images, to be taken direct to my online store.

  2. Wow, this would have to be one of my favourite cards of yours, Christine! Fabulous layout and gorgeous, soft colouring of that image. Great job!

  3. This is stunning Christine! I love your soft colouring and the mix of DSPs you've chosen. Everything works so well together and is so beautifully balanced. xx
