Just Add Ink Challenge #266 - Get Well Soup

I must say I really struggled to create with this colour combination! Well I hope you like my card which I think needs some more layers - but thats just the creative critic in my head talking!
I'm excited to share with you the NEW A4 Whisper White THICK cardstock on this card too. It's so much more sturdier than using the regular whisper white- which I always had to 'reinforce' with extra layers.

Here is the inspirational colours put together for us by the talented JAI designers for Just Add Ink #266

I recently purchased the 'Get Well Soup' stamp and I love it!! Its a great size and is easy to fussy cut out.  Plus it couldn't be better timing to have this sentiment, my poor kiddies have been really unwell these past few weeks - winter is not agreeing with them at all!

I haven't gone too heavy with the colours this time round.What do you think??

 
Carolina's Tips and Techniques:
With just a little navy for the stamping, I stamped the whole image onto some whisper white & just the bowl onto pink pirouette cardstock.  I then cut out the bowl, here's how I did it. I cut inside the bold lines so that when layered onto the white you can't see the 'joining lines;'

I've added this colour swatch that features the colours on my card. Please feel free to pin it to your pinterest boards!

  5. I would never have thought you stuggled with the colours as your card is awesome, Carolina. Love that the bowl is the focus in navy & pink, with the little gold highlights from the vellum & glittery heart. Love!
