Just Add Ink Challenge # 318……’Just Add S’!!!

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is  “Just Add S” – suggested by  Tina.

There are so many possibilities for this Challenge such as -Stamping, Scrunching, Stitching, Sponging, Stripes, Spots, Stars etc.

For my ‘S’ project, I chose to make a starburst with Designer Series Paper.  It’s a great way to use up all those little scraps of paper and is fun to do.

To join us for this fun Challenge – Just Add ‘S’, go to Just Add Ink and share your project with us.  Check out all the other wonderful S projects.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 316 – Just Add Stripes

Well – I’m a little late in posting this – but I’ll explain.  As I mentioned last week, when I am creating projects I often use whatever I have made for a couple of things.   Like challenges or card classes or friends birthdays etc……and this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge was one of those.

This Challenge – Just Add Stripes – was also a Challenge I set with my Sister and friend Kim.  So I made one card and sent it to Kim and Nadine last week (knowing it would take a week or so to get there)…….and then also used for the Just Add Ink.  So the idea was that both would be able to be revealed at the same time.   And today – I confirmed that the cards had reached Nadine and Kim – so now I can complete my Just Add Ink post.

The Challenge for Just Add Ink was suggested by Patrice – and I think it might be quite popular.  To Just add…. Stripes you could use stripes on designer paper or some stamped or masked ones or washi tape!

Here is my card…..

I created my stripes by masking and sponging.  It’s quite a neat effect.  And then I found a little teddy that also had a striped shirt – so he fitted in quite well.

Check out all the other striped projects at Just Add Ink – and join us in this challenge.

Just Add Ink # 315 Sketch Challenge

We have a Sketch Challenge this week at Just Add Ink.  The sketch was put together by Tina.   Here it is….

Often, when  I am creating things for Just Add Ink Challenges, I am also making them for other things too…….friends birthdays, challenges that I am doing with my sister or as projects for card classes.  So this week I was thinking….how can I incorporate this Challenge and something else at the same time…….

Then last weekend I went out for a night of crafting with friends, where we all made a few boxes…..and this really inspired me to come up with this project…….which will also be used for a class project.

I used the sketch on the top of the box.

An inside……it’s a Secret box!


Cool huh?   And fun to make too.

The Just Add Ink Design Team have put together some lovely projects this week……so go and check them out.  And then join us for this Challenge.
