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.
This week at Just Add Ink we have a Challenge designed to get the Inspiration going. These lovely images provided by Jodene………….
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.

Here’s a cool challenge for you … Just Add…Polka Dots!
This week the Just Add Ink Team want you to make projects with Polka Dots on them…… there are so many ways this can be done. Check out my Polka Dotted Card:
Believe it or not – my Polka Dots kinda happened and then I realised – Hey that’s Polka Dots. Funny!!
I had looked through my Papers, Cards, Ribbons, Stamps etc and thought I don’t have any Polka Dots – and then I was putting together some Baby cards for future use and made this card.
To make the Polka Dot back ground, I brayered my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder with Baja Breeze Ink and then made a Big Shot Sandwich and ran it through the Big Shot……this meant that some of the ink transferred onto the card stock – but where the dots were there was no ink. Great technique and a new way to use your embossing folders.
I have used the Baby Prints Stamp Set – which is just so perfect for Baby Cards and gifts. And the ribbon is the Baja Breeze Seam Binding – which is really soft and beautiful.
Visit Just Add Ink to see the variety of ways the JAI Design Team did it. There is such a range of inspiration for you…. I hope you have fun creating something for this challenge.

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.
I have put together a little card for the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge this week. Firstly – let me show you the Sketch.
I decided to flip the Sketch over and approach it from a different perspective……
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………
To me – I thought these colours were quite girly and pretty. However, I decided to use them on a boys card.
I just loved playing with this Stamp Set – it’s called Dinoroar. They are so cute and can be used for both Boys and Girls.
The Design Team have put together some beautiful projects using these Colours – go to Just Add Ink
and check them out.

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
Here is is open……
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.
