Challenge # 272 – Just Add…..Butterflies

Just Add Ink Challenge # 272 is Just Add……….Butterflies!!!

Well – I can guarantee from the outset that this is going to be a very very popular challenge.  Let’s face it – we all LOVE butterflies.  They are so intriguing and delicate – not to mention beautiful.  So – get those craft things out and show us your Butterfly!

Here’s mine!

I used one of the Butterfly Thinlet Dies to create this.  I decided I want to have a go at making an inlay butterfly.  That means that I cut 3 Butterflies – one Black, one Orange and one White.  Then I glued the Black outline down first on some card and then stuck all the little Orange and White bits into their rightful places.  It’s fiddly and time-consuming – but I think the effect is worth it.

So here’s my complete card:

I made this for a very special person.  Check out all the other beautiful Butterflies / projects at Just Add Ink – and show us yours too.

Just Add Ink # 271 – Sketch Challenge

Now here’s a funny thing………you won’t see my card up on the Just Add Ink Website this week…..why not?

Because I had such a busy week…..I set about making my entry at the beginning of the week and in fact made 2 x cards that fit the challenge – and I was quite pleased with myself that I had got them done – well within time too.

And then……come Friday and I’m on my way to working, thinking…..”Oh yes, new Just Add Ink Challenge today”……that’s when I realised – I had not photographed the cards or got them ready to post.   Oh dear!

Anyway – I decided to put them up here anyway.

So – the Challenge is a Sketch Challenge this week.  It was put together by Narelle.  JAISketch_2013I decided to use the Sketch for 2 x Birthday Cards because this week both my Father-in-Law and Mother-in-Law have their Birthdays.   So I did a card for each of them.

Just Add Ink # 269 – Colour Combo

It’s Color Combo time at Just Add Ink this week and it’s a great Colour Combo too – put together by Kim.

This incorporates a couple of the In-colours, Tip Top Taupe and Lost Lagoon and then two very pretty blues, Soft Sky and Pool Party.

JAI 269

 

When I looked in my stash of stuff in my craft room I realised I did not have any Tip Top Taupe and the only Soft Sky item I had, was some ribbon.  So I did have to improvise a little.  Instead of Tip To Taupe I used Crumb Cake.  Here is my card.

DSC00102With such pretty colours (can you tell I like them) you HAVE to go and check out what the Design Team at Just Add Ink have made – beautiful.  And then, join us for this Challenge too.
