Just Add Ink - Colour Challenge

07 February 2014

Colour challenges are not always my favourite. I sit for hours with dozens of stamp sets and cardstock figuring out what I am going to do! I also generally think about what upcoming celebrations are happening. 

Next week is my Nephews 5th Birthday. I know what you're thinking.....an ambulance with happy birthday? He is having an Emergency Services Birthday Party and his Mum is a nurse, so I thought the ambulance from the 'You're My Hero' was cute.

Just Add Ink Colour Challenge Colours:

JAI 201
(*Note: I substituted Sahara Sand with Crumb Cake)

Because I was in a bit of a tizz (total meltdown slash creative mojo not working moment) with this colour challenge, my husband said he could to the challenge! So I gave him the card stock colours and all the inkpad colours and he got working on his masterpiece! Well, with absolutely no help from me he created this card. He used the arrows from the new Circle Thin Dies and mastered the Big Shot all by himself! Also note the two tone stamping. Not a bad effort at all I say, maybe I should find myself in a tizz more often!
