Just Add Ink 10

A colour challenge: Close to cocoa, cameo coral, blush blossom and kraft

When I first saw these colours in the JAI challenge I thought 'what am I going to do with those??!!' Cameo coral and blush are two colours I rarely use and so this challenge was exactly that for me - a challenge!  And it has changed my mind about one of the colours at least. Blush blossom would make a great neutral to stamp your image on when making a pink card instead of using white!  I find the cameo coral just too bright (even for me) so I have only used a small amount to mat the image and also stamped the image with versamark and used cameo coral pastel to make the image pop.

  1. Good job on using the colours that you don't usually!!!! It's always fun to stretch ourselves!!

  2. So sweet! I'd never really used Blush Blossom until one of the challenges we did, now I love it! Sounds silly, but it's the pink I use when I don't want a true pink... lol. Thanks for playing!
