Just Add Ink Challenge # 506 – Inspiration

No photo description available.

Well it’s time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge – which is an Inspiration Challenge.   For these Challenges, you can use the colours, shapes or a combination of the things you see to inspire your craft.

I used the colours in the pic to create a water colour background.   It’s quite abstract and bold.  I kept the rest of the card fairly simple and uncluttered.

Just Add Ink # 501 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: text

This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge.    It’s bright and bold.

For my card, I picked out the colours and some of the shapes from the Inspiration picture.   I used some Watercolour paper and dies to create some colourful shapes.

First, I sprayed some watercolour paper (with water) and then stamped ink directly onto my largest acrylic block.  I spritzed the ink block with a little extra water and then stamped it onto the wet watercolour paper.   I really like how the inks all blend together to create unique designs.  I also like the effect of the colours against the white background.

Here are a couple of other versions that I made.

Here is the card I made:

You can’t really see in the photo – but the enamel dots that I used are very sparkly….I really love them.

I really enjoyed doing the emboss resist with the water-colour wash over the top – I used 3 colours in similar tones.  Blushing Bride, Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral.  The flowers are from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set which I think is my new favourite.

So – dive through a frame or window into this challenge, share your creation with us at Just Add Ink.

JAI # 216 – Just Add Watercolour

This week the Just Add Ink Challenge has been suggested by Paula – Just Add Watercolour.   There are lots of ways to create water colour effects.  For this Challenge I decided to try something different, compared to other water colouring techniques I have used before.  Here is the card I did…..

I spritzed my water colour paper with water first and then stamped directly onto the wet paper.  As the paper dried the colours blended quite a bit.  So I stamped again over the top after it had dried a bit.

To get the clear sentiment I waited until the paper had dried completely – and then stamped the sentiment.

Watercolouring is very effective and fun to do – you should have a go.  Check out what the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have done.  And join our Watercolour Challenge.
