Just Add Ink Challenge # 422 – Choose Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two.  The things you can choose from this time all have something to do with Embossing.   There are several types of Embossing – and many many ways to use it in our projects – so this Challenge allows you to do that.

I have chosen to use Embossing Paste and Embossing Powder.

I used a new stencil I got a couple of weeks ago – I kinda think it looks Giraffeey.  What do you think?

Heres the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out many other creations by the Design Team and fellow Crafters.  Have fun embossing!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 416…….Sketch Challenge!

Here’s the Just Add Ink Challenge this week # 416 Sketch as suggested by Patrice.

Sometimes, people ask me, “Where do you get your ideas from”?

Well….. Sketches are a great start for any card, so the layout of my card this week was where I started.  For the rest of it – my inspiration came from a beautiful dress I saw an actress wearing (on TV).

It was stunning, far more sparkly and shimmery than what I have created – and it was more of an ice blue colour too.  However, it gave me the idea to colour the die cut paper like this.   The die cut paper is so delicate and pretty.  Being White on one side and Vanilla on the other, means you can team is with any colour combo.  Or even colour it, like I have here.

I really enjoyed doing the emboss resist with the water-colour wash over the top – I used 3 colours in similar tones.  Blushing Bride, Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral.  The flowers are from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set which I think is my new favourite.

I’m really liking using this back ground stamp at the moment – I really love the textured look it gives to card.  It call Burlap.

So – here is the link to the Just Add Ink Challenge – so that you can check out the Design Team projects and also join us for this Challenge.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 402……Just Choose Two!

Hi Everyone,

Hey Happy Easter!

The next Just Add Ink Challenge is here.  Suggested by Nikki the Just Add Two items are Stencil, Foil, Feathers.    Here is the card that I put together:

I used Embossing paste and a stencil to create my back ground panel.  I coloured it with a little bit of Chocolate Chip ink – so that it matched my card.  I used some foil card to add some leaves and a circle in the centre of the daisy.   The ribbon also has gold accents in it too.

I used the same colours and elements to make another card:

Being a long weekend, perhaps you have a bit of time to spend crafting??   If so, join us for this Challenge.  You can make a card, 3D item or layout using the Choose Two theme to inspire you.  Share your projects with us at Just Add Ink.
