Just Because

I haven't played along with Just Add Ink for a while due to time constraints, but when I saw this sketch this week I knew I had to play along.

I also wanted to play along with this week's Color Dare challenge, Goldrush and Topiary.

I didn't have any Goldrush ink, so I improvised and used patterned paper. I added the wooden bird, flying by the cloud, as I felt it needed something else.The sentiment, paper and cutout were all from the Cloud Nine cardmaking kit, and I made the banner by stamping some white cardstock with a background stamp. Paired with kraft and wood, I think these colours work really well together!

This is going to be part of a RAK parcel being sent away soon :)

CTMH supplies used:
Cardstock: Kraft, Topiary, White Daisy
Ink: Topiary
Paper: Cloud Nine
Stamp sets: Cloud Nine, Universal Backgrounds
Embellishments: Wooden Trinket Shapes, Die Cut Frames
