Here’s the new Just Add Ink Challenge. #348 Just Add…Ombre. This challenge was suggested by Rochelle and it’s one I have been looking forward too since it was first discussed by the Just Add Ink Design Team last year.
The definition of Ombre, is having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially in fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.
It also an old three-handed card game popular in Europe especially in the 17th and 18th centuries – although I don’t know much about the game!
But the colour side of it can be applied to so many things in so many ways. In terms of Hair colours it’s often dark at the top fading to light at the bottom – and looks fantastic. But it does not have to be restricted to just hair colours………
I put together a couple of Ombre cards, using different effects.
This is the perfect challenge to practice your brayering or sponging too. So have a go with us!

I haven’t posted anything for a couple of weeks because I have been so flat out with work and other activities. I have found myself very drained at the end of each day – so venturing into the craft room or near the computer has not been something I’ve wanted to do. However, we now have a little lull at work in the middle of our busy season – so I’ve been back in the craft room.
There are some wonderful colours in these pics not to mention the shapes. Here is the card I put together…..
Join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge, share how these pic’s have inspired you and have a look at how they have inspired others.
I’ve had a very quite time in the craft room lately – not much happening at all – there’s been holidays, sickness and just the need to have a little rest. But I’ve been back in the craft room this week – pottering around.
This was fun and colourful to put together. I’ve used the All in the Family and Just Beachy Stamp Sets.
This Sketch has inspired the Design team in many many ways – visit Just Add Ink to see the variety of idea and things you can do with one Sketch. And then have a go yourself and share it with us.
It’s Colour Combo time. Here are the colours, they are really beautiful………
Oh my Goodness…..it’s February already! Can you believe it? And you know what that means don’t you? Valentines Day. All those lovey cards, soft toys, over-priced flowers and surprise engagements………. ohhhh isn’t it lovely! Therefore, our Theme at Just Add Ink this week is Valentinesy – It’s a Red & White colour Combo.
For this Challenge – I was actually inspired be a card that had been given to me last month.
First I brayered a Heart shape with Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. Then I cut out several Butterflies in different Reds and then stuck them on. I decided not to add a Sentiment to this card at all – because I thought it could be used for a number of occasions.
Check all the creations at Just Add Ink here – and don’t forget to have a go at this challenge and add your own creation too.
Far out – 70 Just Add Ink Challenges so far – can you believe it. Isn’t that wonderful?
So I hope you join in and play along with # 70 which is a Sketch Challenge. It is a round Sketch……
There is so much you could do with this sketch – here is the card I did
When I made this card I had been making Kid’s Cards…..so I used the little owl and brayered a background for him
I really like how the leaves/branches came out actually – it as a bit of tricky cutting and glueing but worth it I think.
You should see what the other girls have made – awesome man…..check them out here at Just Add Ink.
It’s Colour Combo time at Just Add Ink. But this one’s a little different!
Normally – we at Just Add Ink tell you what colours to use……but this time you get to choose the colours.
And it will help if you have a particular chocolate bar that you love because the challenge is……..
To make a paper craft project inspired by your favourite chocolate bar wrapper.
So what’s it to be? Mint, White, Dairy, Nutty, Caramel…….the list goes on.
I used the Brayer to do the background in 2 x colours – Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise. Then I punched the Birds out in Chocolate Chip and Concord Crush. I added a bit of Very Vanilla to represent the Dream!
What a fun Challenge……The Design Team thought so and have come up with some yummy creations for this week. You may have to hop on over to their blogs to see what wrappers they were inspired by. Visit Just Add Ink here.
