Just Add Ink # 349 – Inspiration Challenge

Hi – happy Friday everyone – I have to say that because when you see the Just Add Ink Challenge this week you will realise that you just can’t help but be Happy!!
We have an Inspiration picture for you this week.  This has been chosen by Patrice.
So the idea is to make the main element of your project something that is inspired by the picture.  It could be the colours, Macaroons, Balloons or shapes in the inspiration picture.

No automatic alt text available.

Here is the card I put together:

I made the rainbow background using a paint brush and some ink.  And then I used the Balloon element to complete the card.

So join us for this challenge at Just Add Ink – share your take on this Inspiration Challenge.

Just Add Ink # 304…..Inspiration!

Well we have pretty much come to the end of March – can you believe it – the year so going to fast!   Happy Easter to everyone – I hope you will have a lovely weekend.
The last Just Add Ink challenge for March is an Inspiration Challenge.  Jodene has challenged us all with this fun and colourful inspiration photo.  (I love the vibrant colours in this pic)
JAI 304

Here is the card I put together:

I used bunches of coloured balloons to represent the umbrellas.   I found my card quite a difficult shape to photograph – here it is from another angle.

So – using this Inspiration pic as a starting point, join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge.  Create a Card, Scrapbook Layout or 3D project.   And go to Just Add Ink to check out all that the Design Team have made.

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 # 267 – Just Add Typography

Now here’s a Challenge, if ever there was one…. Just Add Typography!

Firstly, when I saw this, I did not even know what it was.  So I had to go and look it up.

typography

noun
  1. the style and appearance of printed matter.
    • the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it.

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable and appealing.

So this sound like a great Challenge to me.

Here is the card that I put together:

I figured that Birthday themed words were the ones I had the most of so that formed the theme of my card.  And thanks to the Stamp-a-ma-jig I got them all on the page.

To see the other examples of great Typography, visit the Design Team at Just Add Ink.

We look forward to you joining our Challenge this week.

JAI # 249 – Sketch Challenge!

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge, provided by Tina.

JAISketch006[1]

I decided to do something a bit different with the sketch – because I was looking at what shapes I could use instead of Hexagons.  Here is my card:

DSC00123

 

My little owls ended up a bit bigger than I had imagined and so they ended up taking up the whole card.

The other thing that is special about this card – is it’s my first ‘Card by Candlelight’!!   Hahaha!!

This week we have had quite a few Thunder/lightning storms and the power has been going off.   So I spent a couple of nights crafting in the dark.   I thought it came out OK considering.

So go to Just Add Ink to share your creation that is inspired by this sketch with us.  And while you are there check out the rest of the creations made by the Design Team.

Just Add Ink # 227 – Just Add Chipboard

It was me that suggested this Challenge for Just Add Ink.  Just Add Chipboard.

I thought it would be good to have a go at working with something a bit different.  I think that Chipboard can add a great dimension to your projects.   So here is my Card:

The chipboard elements on my card are the swirly thing and the two butterflies (one on top of the other).
