Just Add Ink # 81 – Colour Combo

Just Add Ink # 81 is a Colour Combo….it’s a good one to cause it could be used for both men or women.  Here are the colours.

With Father’s Day approaching I have been doing Man Cards this week….so I used these colours for a Father’s Day Card.

I did not have any Cajun Craze – so I have actually used the retired Really Rust instead.  Because it’s for a man I did not use any ribbons or embellishments – just stuck to layering the card stock and adding texture by distressing the edges and piercing a few holes.

This is a great colour combo – go and check it out here at Just Add Ink to see what the rest of the DT has put together.

JAI # 79 – Distressing Week!

Ohhhh it’s all very distressing this week at Just Add Ink……and if you’re not distressed then your ripped off!  And if you’re all that….then do that to your projects too!

Get what I mean?  That’s right we are Just Adding Distressing or Ripping to our projects this week.  I quite often like to add a bit of distressing to my cards…I think it adds extra texture to the elements of your project.

It’s funny where we find inspiration too.  This week – I had no idea of what I was going to make – and thought about it quite a bit for a few days until Sunday…when Sarah decided on a Purple T-shirt with a cool pattern on it…….

and there was the start of my card……..

This has heaps of things on it…..first I used 3 different Wheels to create the background and then added a layer of Silver Embossing over the top of that.  After distressing and ripping and sticking a few bits together I made some Butterflies with the Big Shot.  I did them in Perfect Plum, Basic Black, Melon Mambo and a few in Acetate that I inked with some Staz on White.

Then stuck it all together.  The stars I raided from Sarah’s craft stuff….I hope she does not notice or else she’ll probably take them back.

To finish it all off I sprayed it with some Shimmer Paint….which is hard to see in the Pic’s but is cool IRL.  You can kinda see it here.

 So if you feel like having a ripping good time…..go to Just Add Ink and have a go.  The Design Team have a great range of distressed / ripped projects to show you too.
