Just Add Ink #367..."Colour"

Hi everyone, before we get into this weeks challenge, the JAI team would like to take a minute to say farewell to Shona Chambers.  

Shona has been a part of the JAI Design Team since the beginning of 2015, although she played along with Challenges and featured as a Guest Designer prior to that time.  Shona has a wonderful CAS style, often using uncluttered white space, allowing colourful images to shine on her cards.  Shona also uses different shaped windows, frames and sequins with ease.  Her creativity will be missed within the Just Add Ink team.
Shona, we wish you well and we will be looking for you in future Challenges.


This week we have a Colour Combination that has been suggested by Patrice.  It features some Neutrals and one of the new In-colours  - Lemon Lime Twist.

We hope these colours get your ideas flowing and hope you can find time to join in the fun and play along.

Here is what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration...
