We have a sweet Colour Challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink – very pretty colours
Come and join us for this challenge at Just Add Ink – see what the Design Team have put together and also show us your creations.
Sometimes, producing a ‘Man Card’ can be hard to do. I often ask my husband his opinion and if there is any hint of glitter or ribbon – he deems it “just tooooo girly”!
So this week at Just Add Ink we are sharing our Man Card ideas, for the Just Add Cards for Males Challenge.
Here is the card I put together for this challenge:
As you can see – there is no glitter, flowers or ribbon……so I think it fits!
Head on over to Just Add Ink for more Cards for Males – the Design Team have some great cards to share. Join us for the Challenge and share your projects with us.
We have a sketch challenge at Just Add Ink this week. It’s a fairly simple sketch so there are lots and lots that you can do with it.
A couple of weeks ago, I made some Alcohol Ink background sheets to use in a class and a few people commented that they had not used that technique before – so I decided it was time we revisited the technique.
I used the technique on this weeks Challenge card.I am sure there are many many wonderful things you can do with this sketch. We love you to join our challenge and share your projects with us at Just Add Ink. While you are there, you can check out all the great Design Team projects too.
Below is a copy of the tutorial I did on the technique in 2010 for the Just Add Ink first ever Blog Hop (13 May 2010).
The Technique I am showing you today is the Ink & Alcohol Technique
Using Re-inkers, Isocol Alcohol, Glossy White Card and a Cotton Ball you can create funky and unique Backgrounds.
Step One – Squeeze some Isocol Alcohol (which you can buy from your Supermarket or Pharmacy) onto a Cotton Ball. Add some dots of Ink from your reinker onto the cotton ball. You can use several colours.
Step Two – Dab the ink onto Glossy White Card. It dries quickly – and you can go over the same area a couple of times if you wish.
Another option is to Stamp an image with Versamark and emboss it before covering with Alcohol Ink.
