Just Add Ink - Colour Combo

Just Add Ink 225
Happily Ever After
Over at Just Add Ink this week the challenge is a colour challenge. 
Now, if you follow my blog you will know that I generally get stuck on colour challenges! I don't know what it is but for some reason  as soon as I see colour challenge I lose my mojo! 

JAI 225

I am quite happy with the result and have fallen in love with the new Lovely Lace Embossing Folder.

I have created a quick tutorial on how I achieved this effect on my card, as in the image you can't really see the texture of the embossing and it just looks like I have stamped white stamps on it!

Look out - this is my VERY FIRST video tutorial, with many more to come. *insert smiley face :) 

Stamp Sets: Big News
Accessories: Lovely Lace Embossing Folder. SEam Binding Ribbon, White Ink Pad, Embossing Powder
Colour Combination: Whisper White, Smokey Slate, So Saffron, Basic Black

Thanks for stopping by,
Lou xo
