Sketches are great ways to start your projects – they give you a layout to begin with that you can flip different ways or turn around to help you put together a card or lay out. The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge. Here’s the Sketch:
I decided not to flip it or turn it around……just went with it as is:
My background panel was created with Brusho’s – and the colours in them determined the rest of the colours on my card.

Happy New Year everyone – 2018 is here!!
There is no better way to kick off the year, than with a Blog Hop.
The 2018 Just Add Ink Blog Hop theme is Just Add Something New.
So that means…. What’s new in your craft area? It might be some paper, colours or pencils or something you haven’t used before. This is going to be a fun challenge with endless possibilities. We hope you will join the challenge with us.
When looking through my craft area I found quite a few things I had not used before and a couple of new things too. My Just Add Something New items come from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. I’ve used the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp Set and Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.
I used them to put together an Easel card.
I wanted the Rainbow to stick up above the clouds, as if it’s in the air. This was a fun card to make.
The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start. All you need to do is to follow along is click the “Next” Button at the end of each persons post and you will be taken to the next stop. Remember the Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week. You can join in this weeks challenge by making a project that includes something New from your Craft area.
So – here we go, now it’s time for you to move onto the next Just Add Ink Design Team Member. Just click on the button below and you will move onto the lovely Narelle’s Blog.
Enjoy the Blog Hop, gather inspiration and then join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink.

Hi ya, well, here we are, the week before Christmas! That means the final Just Add Ink Challenge for 2017!
This Just Choose Two Challenge was suggested by Kim and runs for two weeks until 3rd January 2018.
There are 3 items to choose from, Twine – Trees – Tags. I thought that these items worked well for a Christmas themed project. See my Christmas Tag below.
The Choose Two items don’t have to be used for a Christmas project though. Go to Just Add Ink to see other inspirational projects by the Design Team and to share your project with us.

Oh my goodness…….where on earth did October go?? Or perhaps you were wondering where I had gone?? Either way, a month has passed…..but I am back now with the new Just Add Ink Challenge.
Challenge # 385 is a Sketch Challenge…….here it is.
I made a card using the Beautiful You stamp set. I took my colour combo inspiration from the colours in the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. I have been wanting to use these for some time – not only are they sparkly but also different sizes and great colours.
Here’s closer look at the sequins…….pretty aye??
This is a great sketch – so go to Just Add Ink and check it out. The Design Team have some great projects to share with you and you can play along too.

Here’s a Colour Combo for you from Just Add Ink. Challenge # 377.
Great colours – kinda beachy I thought? As you probably know, I love blue and blue features in my cards quite often – so I was quite keen on this colour combo.
Here is my project…..
I made a card wallet with lovely large colourful daisies on the outside. Think this will work well for a Teachers gift. I white embossed the flowers and used some Clear faceted gems in the centre of each flower to add a bit of bling.
Inside are some matching cards and envelopes (which I have not photographed yet). I think this will make a nice little gift.
To check out heaps of other projects using these colours, go to Just Add Ink as see what the Design Team have been up too. And then join in with this challenge too!

Hi ya, far out, can’t believe its September already!! The good thing is that means Summer is coming, but the down side is it means busy season at work and I’m not really looking forward to that.
Here is the next Just Add Ink Challenge – # 375 Sketch Challenge.
I actually made a couple of cards with this Sketch. Here they are:
Join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge – see what the Design Team have made and then share your creation with us.

Hi, here’s the next Just Add Ink challenge! Karren suggested we use Stencils for Challenge # 373.
There are so many different Stencil designs to choose from and there are so many different ways to use them too. I use them quite a bit – love them actually. You can sponge them with ink (or use a dauber), smear them with embossing paste or glitter or spritz paint over them.
For my stencil card, I decided to make a background using a Stencil that has bold flowers and leaves.
I added some vellum, cord and the new Happy Birthday die cut sentiment to finish it off.
So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the other Stencil ideas and then share yours with us at Just Add Ink too.
