Just Add Ink # 350 Sketch Challenge

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge….and well I just had to play along for 2 reasons really…….
1. New stamps to play with
2. I was the one to suggest this Sketch.
When creating for this challenge you can use the sketch for your card, scrapbook page or 3D project.  It’s a very versatile sketch and remember that you can turn it on is side or up the other way too…..so there are endless ways to use it.
Here is the card I made…..
I used the Love you Lots (Hostess) stamp set.  It has heaps of cute little animals in it.
Check out all the other great Design Team projects using the Sketch Challenge at Just Add Ink and share yours with us too.

Just Add Ink # 349 – Inspiration Challenge

Hi – happy Friday everyone – I have to say that because when you see the Just Add Ink Challenge this week you will realise that you just can’t help but be Happy!!
We have an Inspiration picture for you this week.  This has been chosen by Patrice.
So the idea is to make the main element of your project something that is inspired by the picture.  It could be the colours, Macaroons, Balloons or shapes in the inspiration picture.

Here is the card I put together:

I made the rainbow background using a paint brush and some ink.  And then I used the Balloon element to complete the card.

Just Add Ink # 348 Ombre

Here’s the new Just Add Ink Challenge.  #348 Just Add…Ombre.  This challenge was suggested by Rochelle and it’s one I have been looking forward too since it was first discussed by the Just Add Ink Design Team last year.

The definition of Ombre, is having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially in fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

It also an old three-handed card game popular in Europe especially in the 17th and 18th centuries – although I don’t know much about the game!

But the colour side of it can be applied to so many things in so many ways.   In terms of Hair colours it’s often dark at the top fading to light at the bottom – and looks fantastic.  But it does not have to be restricted to just hair colours………

I put together a couple of Ombre cards, using different effects.

This is the perfect challenge to practice your brayering or sponging too.   So have a go with us!

JAI # 346 Just Choose Two…….Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week allows us to combine a couple of things for our projects.  The idea is to Choose Two!   Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies.  Here is the card I put together:

My idea was to try to use the pages from a colouring book in some way – so I die cut some Butterflies (and left them uncoloured).  I used a floral DSP to add some colour too.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the great projects that also Just Add Two (Hearts, Flowers or Butterflies).   And remember to share your project with us.

New Year Blog Hop – Just Add Ink # 343

Image may contain: text

Happy New Year everyone – 2017….here we go!!

At Just Add Ink we always kick the year off with a Blog Hop!  The 2017 Blog Hop theme is “Pop Up or Interactive”   This is going to be a fun challenge and we hope you will join the challenge with us.

I decided to make an Interactive card – a Venetian Blind card.
This idea came from a card that my friend Kim gave me many years ago.  I have always looked at the card she gave me and treasured it and decided it was time for me to have a go at making one. So here it is……

Starts off with the blind closed………

Then as you pull the strings at each side of the card, the blind opens………

This card was fun and easy to make (once I worked it out).  It also has endless possibilities of what you could put behind your blind.

The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start.  All you need to do to follow along, is click the “Next” Button at the end of each post and you will be taken to the next stop. Remember the Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week. You can join in this week’s challenge by making a Pop Up or Interactive project.

So – hope that all makes sense……..here we go, now it’s time for you to move onto the next JAI Design Team Member.  Just click on the button below to move onto Jan’s Blog.
