I added Pool Party to my card.   To make the back ground I sponged a bit of Pool Party and then some Lovely Lipstick through a stencil.    Well…………to be honest, it was only meant to be the Pool Party, but I picked up the wrong sponge!!   LOL – oh well, I just adapted it a bit.

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 # 430 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: flower and text

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge……I put together this pretty floral card and I know who I’m sending it too……

No automatic alt text available.

This card came together easily and I think that was because I liked the pretty colours in this Inspiration pic,  so tried to use them on my card too.  The details that I quite like are the stamped daisy’s on the base card and the pink stencil work in the background.

Please follow this link to Just Add Ink to join in this Challenge with us.  Happy Stamping!

Just Add Ink # 387 Colour Combo

Happy Friday to you.  Here’s a great Colour combo for this time of the year for you to try out.   Just Add Ink Challenge # 387.

Image may contain: text

I think these are very Christmasy colours and therefore I have made a Christmas card.  I used a stencil to make a background.   I actually got the idea off a restaurant wall…..except their colours scheme was more neutral than this.  I added the Glitter paper for some sparkle.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 373 Just Add Stencils!!

Hi, here’s the next Just Add Ink challenge!   Karren suggested we use Stencils for Challenge # 373.

Image may contain: text
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.
