Just Add Ink Challenge # 506 – Inspiration

No photo description available.

Well it’s time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge – which is an Inspiration Challenge.   For these Challenges, you can use the colours, shapes or a combination of the things you see to inspire your craft.

I used the colours in the pic to create a water colour background.   It’s quite abstract and bold.  I kept the rest of the card fairly simple and uncluttered.

Just Add Ink # 501 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: text

This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge.    It’s bright and bold.

For my card, I picked out the colours and some of the shapes from the Inspiration picture.   I used some Watercolour paper and dies to create some colourful shapes.

JAI # 501

First, I sprayed some watercolour paper (with water) and then stamped ink directly onto my largest acrylic block.  I spritzed the ink block with a little extra water and then stamped it onto the wet watercolour paper.   I really like how the inks all blend together to create unique designs.  I also like the effect of the colours against the white background.

JAI # 501a

Here are a couple of other versions that I made.

Just Add Ink # 498 – Just Add “E” !

Hi, how’s you week been?

I’ve been fairly busy, working from Home while also playing Teacher for my daughter who has been Home from School.  It’s going well so far and we have both been getting though a lot of work.

We have already had a couple of quiet weeks at Home.  One good thing about hanging at Home is spending more time in my craft room.  I will share with you some of the cards that I have made shortly.  But for now, lets have a look at the new Just Add Ink Challenge.

For this Challenge, I decided to make an Easel card.    As further inspiration,  I looked at the photos I took of my visit to Keukenhof, almost a year ago.  I had a wonderful day, wandering the gardens and taking in all the glorious sights.  I literally took hundreds of photos and they are all so colourful.

So for this card, here is the photo that I picked out.IMG_0825

Of course, with a photo like that, I had to used the Timeless Tulip Stamp set.  As soon as I saw this Stamp Set,  I loved it.  I stamped lots of Tulips in different colours and sizes.

Here is my card:

Just Add Ink # 496 – Inspiration Challenge!

I’m sure you would agree with me that there is a lot going on in the world today –
not just our usual day to day stuff but all the CoVid19 news and developments.

I know there are a lot of people stressed out and worried about it.
You only have to see the News coverage of people fighting in the Super market over groceries and bulk buying toilet paper – it’s just crazy.

So it’s lovely that our next Just Add Ink Challenge has a calm and natural feel to it.

It’s and Inspiration Challenge……..

It’s fresh, beachy and a fairly simple picture.  Here is the card I made:

No photo description available.

I flipped the picture and used some vellum to create a foamy wave type effect.  I used a stencil and sponged the Vellum with White ink.  The Stamp Sets I have used are called Seaside Sketches and High Tide.

Wow, I feel like that week went really quickly – because here is the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  The Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge and it a very tropical picture.

Here is the card I made:No photo description available.

I used the Botanical Blooms Stamps and Dies for this card.  For some of the leave is used some leafy DSP and a die to cut them out.

I added a bit of glitter by using some glittery enamel dots and the beautiful new glossy Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon.

Just Add Ink # 481 – Inspiration Challenge

Well this weeks been a bit funny here…..at the beginning of the week, we had a very warm 38O and by the end of the week we were down to a freezing 17O!  From one extreme to the other, all in the space of a few days.  Luckerly I have had the Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge to work on so have been able to hibernate (in my craft room) from the heat and cold.

I picked some of the colours out of the Inspiration picture and made a Thank you card.

Perhaps you might use the Inspiration Photo in your craft projects this week too.   Join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink

Just Add Ink Challenge # 471

At Just Add Ink this week we a running an “Inspiration” challenge.  It was suggested by Rachael.  The colours in the pic are lovely and I think it’s also kinda a Wintery pic too.  Here is the card I made for this Challenge:

JAI # 471 Chantell

I used a stencil and some Embossing paste in the background.  Then I repeat stamped the sentiment in different colours – I think its quite effective.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 456…Inspiration

It’s time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week we have an Inspiration Challenge for you to play along with.  jai picIt’s pretty and could have worked quite well with last weeks Challenge too – which was Just Add Sympathy.

As you may know, I am away from my craft room at the moment – but I really feel I wanted to play along with this Challenge.   So I have had a go with the limited craft supplies I have here.    And I mean limited…….this is pretty much what I have…..

suplies

So no Stamping blocks, only one ink pad and a couple of pens, no punches or dies…..only a little tiny pair of not-very-sharp nail scissors……hahaha, I still wanted to have a go.

So here is my card:

jai 456Don’t look too hard at it, because the cutting out with my dodgy little scissors is not that good…..nor is the stamping.   So all in all I’m quite pleased with how it came out.   What do you think??

This card uses the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, which is featured in the new 2019-2020 Stampin Up Catalogue.  The New Catalogue goes live next month.

Brrrrrr!! Here’s a Wintery pic for you……looks like a Christmas Scene to me. Not that Christmas in Australia or New Zealand looks like that……but you do see so many Wintery Christmas scenes.

I went to the Mall tonight and saw all the Christmas decorations up – it’s such a lovely time to shop.  I’m looking forward to finding some time to have a poke around the shops.

Anyway – here is the card I made for this Inspiration Challenge.
