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 # 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.

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

Image may contain: text

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.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 379 Inspiration……

Hi there, here is the next Just Add Ink Challenge – it’s an Inspiration challenge and has been suggested by Kelly.    This summery photo can be used to provide inspiration for your project in any way that you like…… – the colours, layout, images or the patterns you see – so there are loads of ways it can be used.

Here is the card I made……

I used a Water colour and salt technique to make the colourful circle element.  It was loads of fun to see the way it turned out.

Join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge.  Have a look at what the Design Team have come up with and also have a go and play along too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 377 – Colour Challenge

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!
