Just Add Ink # 487…..Sketch Challenge

Here is the last Just Add Ink Challenge for 2019.  It’s a Sketch Challenge and has been suggested by Jackie.

No photo description available.

I thought this Sketch was perfect for a Christmas card.  I cut some Baubles out of red and silver glimmer paper.  They are super sparkly – which I really like.  I used a stripy and dotty foil paper for the background.

Just Add Ink # 485…One Layer!

one layer

Well here’s a great Challenge for you…. Just Add One Layer…… that means no additional embellishments or layers of Card Stock….pretty much it’s one piece of card and some ink.

I thought this Challenge sounded pretty hard…..but I loved it!!  It was great to get back to ink and paper, letting the stamps and colour be the hero.

So I managed to stamp a few cards.  Here they are:

First up I used the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, teamed with the Swirly Frames stamps.

JAI # 485 (1)After I had stamped the circle, I masked it off and stamped the Poppy image.

For the second card I used the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set.  Love this set – perfect for one layer cards because the images are nicely shaded.  This could be stamped in any colour too.

My third card was using the Forever Blossoms Stamp set.  So pretty.  The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature.

And the last one is the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set.  It’s a really fun reversable set.

But Oh darn……after I stamped it I realised I had the card upside down!!   Oh man, don’tcha hate that!!!   IMG_0444
Yeah – so as you can see, I really had fun creating one layer cards with some new stamp sets.  Can you believe I did all these cards in a very short time, before work one morning!  I could have kept stamping for a while longer too.
