JAI 327 colour challenge - Paisley thank you

Time for some Friday fun with a new Just Add Ink colour challenge. Jan suggested this wonderful colour combination of soft sky, dapper denim & calypso coral. Love it!

My brand new Paisleys & Posies stamp & die bundle got its first inking & oh my goodness I love it even more than I thought I would... which was a lot! The images are so beautifully detailed & work together so well together.

My card is very simple but the beautiful medallions add so much interest. I used five of the stamps in the set in dapper denim ink & partially coloured them with calypso coral & soft sky markers - quick & easy. I stamped & cut more medallions (with the dies - no fussy cutting here) then layered them in a curve across the card, with a final one on some retired calypso coral ribbon, under the thank you sentiment from Flourishing Phrases. I think the script font really works well with the images in Paisleys & Posies. Some rhinestone bling finishes off the look.

I added a few cut medallions on the inside too.

So that's my card - simple & elegant I think. Do you love the Paisleys & Posies set too?
Now head over to Just Add Ink blog to see all the different ways the team have used this brilliant colour combination. Before you go, pin the image collage below for later inspiration. Follow the links to see & order the supplies I used today. Thanks for visiting & come back soon.
Inky wishes, Di

This looks amazing Di. It would take a little time to colour but I love the effect. :)

You've added so much interest to these pretty madeallions Di and I love how you've arranged them in an almost rainbow pattern around your elegant sentiment. So pretty!
