Just Add Ink Challenge # 373 Just Add Stencils!!

Hi, here’s the next Just Add Ink challenge!   Karren suggested we use Stencils for Challenge # 373.

Image may contain: text
There are so many different Stencil designs to choose from and there are so many different ways to use them too.  I use them quite a bit – love them actually.  You can sponge them with ink (or use a dauber), smear them with embossing paste or glitter or spritz paint over them.

For my stencil card, I decided to make a background using a Stencil that has bold flowers and leaves.

I added some vellum, cord and the new Happy Birthday die cut sentiment to finish it off.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the other Stencil ideas and then share yours with us at Just Add Ink too.

Just Add Ink # 365 – Sketch Challenge

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is a sketch.  These are great because there are so many possibilities.  I made 2 cards this week for the Challenge.  Here is the sketch…..No automatic alt text available.

Here is my first card.

I used the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, which is one of my new ones.  I really like it too.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set called Thoughtful Banners – its a sweet little set of words.  I used some of the silver thread, silver foil card and little pink rhinestones to add a bit of bling.

And the second card I made is a fun Everyday Hero card:

I just love this stamp set too.  Its cheeky and fun!!

To find more examples of projects using this Sketch Challenge go to Just Add Ink and have a look at all the creations.  And remember…..have a go at this challenge and share your project with us.

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.

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.
