It’s a Sketch Challenge that was suggested by Narelle.Image may contain: text

Here is the card I made:

I made this for a friend who is turning 50 soon.  She loves the colour green so I used a number of different shades of green on my card.  I used a glitter embossing paste to add some detail to the background.Head to Just Add Ink to join this challenge and/or to check out what the Design Team have put together to provide you with inspiration.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 445 – Embossing.

Image may contain: text

Here’s a fun challenge – Just Add Embossing.   There are a few types of embossing you could add to your projects this week…….Dry embossing (using a Embossing Folder or Embossing by hand), Heat Embossing – so inking, sprinkling with powder and then heating is and Embossing paste (stenciled maybe).

I used Heat Embossing and Embossing Paste on my card.

 

 

I coloured the Embossing paste with a bit of Re-inker.  Then I used the brick stencil with the Embossing paste t make the bottom panel.

 

Next I Heat embossed the tools.  I actually used both silver and black embossing powder to get the two-tone tools.

I like how the tools look so shiny.

So join us for this Challenge – show us how you like to use Embossing on your projects.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 443 – Just Add Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a fun Choose Two challenge (suggested by Jan). So that means you can ‘Choose Two’ out of the three options Embossing Paste, Colouring or Sequins to feature on your project.
I choose the Embossing Paste and Sequins – although now when I look at it………I have all three on there.  LOL.

No photo description available.

I coloured the Embossing Paste with my re-inkers and then mushed them together to get the colours mixing.   The Butterfly comes from the Sale-a-brations Botanical Butterfly DSP

Just Add Ink # 434 – Big Bold Sentiment!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is to Add a BIG BOLD Sentiment……as you’ll see, I made this card a couple of Months ago now – and it fit’s this Challenge perfectly.

No automatic alt text available.

Adding Silver embossing to the letters really helps them to stand out – I mean, they are big enough anyway  but the embossing gives an extra shine.

In the back ground I coloured some embossing paste and using a stencil added a bit of texture to the back ground.

Join Just Add Ink in this challenge and show us your BIG BOLD sentiment projects.

Just Add Ink # 424…. Just Add Texture!!

Image may contain: text

I love Challenges like this – because you can add texture in so many different ways.   This time I used embossing paste with a stencil.  I added some silver paint to is to colour it.   I also added texture with the ribbon that I frayed, then stuck along the edge.

I often ask my husband what he thinks of some cards….and he always says…..it’s not manly if it has ribbon on it.  so fraying the ribbon is really me trying to make it not look like ribbon!  LOL!

I also really like how the cogs turned out.   I used a bit of foil card to die cut them out.

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.

No automatic alt text available.

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 # 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.
