Just Add Ink #134 – Just Add…Polka Dots!

September 7, 2012 at 5:44 am 5 comments

Here’s a cool challenge for you …  Just Add…Polka Dots!

This week the Just Add Ink Team want you to make projects with Polka Dots on them…… there are so many ways this can be done.  Check out my Polka Dotted Card:

Believe it or not – my Polka Dots kinda happened and then I realised – Hey that’s Polka Dots.  Funny!!
I had looked through my Papers, Cards, Ribbons, Stamps etc and thought I don’t have any Polka Dots – and then I was putting together some Baby cards for future use and made this card.

To make the Polka Dot back ground, I brayered my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder with Baja Breeze Ink and then made a Big Shot Sandwich and ran it through the Big Shot……this meant that some of the ink transferred onto the card stock – but where the dots were there was no ink.  Great technique and a new way to use your embossing folders.  

I have used the Baby Prints Stamp Set – which is just so perfect for Baby Cards and gifts.  And the ribbon is the Baja Breeze Seam Binding – which is really soft and beautiful.

Visit Just Add Ink to see the variety of ways the JAI Design Team did it.  There is such a range of inspiration for you…. I hope you have fun creating something for this challenge.

    Very sweet Chantell! I’m so impressed with that effect of the brayered embossing folder that I’m going to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
