Just Add Ink # 230 – Just Add Dad!

Hi everyone!…it time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a very special one this week.   Just Add Dad!

This challenge is celebrating Dad’s, because this weekend, it’s Fathers Day in Australia and New Zealand,    So it’s a great time to create a special card or project especially for Dad.
Here is my card:
DSC00025 (2)
I’ve used a couple of the new In-colours, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.   I’m loving that stitched satin ribbon!
I don’t know if any of you joined us at Just Add Ink for last weeks challenge?  It was an Inspiration Challenge – using  wonderful, colourful, rainbow pictures.  There were heaps of amazing projects that were shared with us…..I really enjoyed looking at them and think I will go back for more looks and inspiration.
The reason I mentioned it, is because the card I have done this week started with a technique shared in last weeks challenge.  Leah Weir shared a beautiful card with a great background technique – and I just had to give it a go.
This was my first attempt.  It’s fun, easy and very effective,  so you should try it too.
Meanwhile…….Join us for Just Add Dad’s – at Just Add Ink.  
We did Fathers Day a bit early.  First we met Ana and Jeremy for lunch – which was very nice.  Then afterwards Sarah and Neil went GoKarting.  Both loved it – and they have been back again this week for another go after school.

    Hmm I think I will have to go check out that entry you mentioned Chantell as the background you created here really makes this card something special! Love the little detail you added to the Honey mat too! xxx
