Just Add Ink #457 Sketch



Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink Narelle is asking us to Just Add a Sketch. It proved the perfect opportunity for me to ink up some new stamps. I decided to go with a more masculine theme, which is always a real challenge as it means I have to think harder how to add that extra level of detail but not too many! Here's the sketch.

Here's how it turned out.




Masculine cards are really about adding texture, so I used an embossing folder and also several stitched elements. I love adding a punch of colour to my backgrounds, so I decided to silhouette my light house against a pop of ombre blue colour created using SU! sponge brayers. I added a little extra depth to the light house using Smokey Slate blends, and some extra texture to the inked background by splattering with water droplets, white gouache splatter and Wink of Stella.

The Just Add Ink DT have some wonderful projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
Kim

Just Add Ink #456 Inspiration




Hello there, 
this week at Just Add Ink Nikki is asking us to Just Add Inspiration. If you are still in need of a Mothers Day card or two then this challenge will be perfect for you! Check out the image below, you can use the colours, patterns or objects from the image as the main element of your project.

Here's what I came up with.




I embossed a sea of white daisies on vellum and then played around with different backing colours, eventually settling on the light grey, as I loved the contrast it provided. I didn't want to distract from the background to much so I kept my focal element small, adding a pop of colour with the yellow and a little bit of floral padding. This was my first outing with the new Daisy Lane set (available in June when the new SU! catalogue goes live) and I found it a pleasure to work with! 

The Just Add Ink DT have a lots of beautiful projects to show you so please do go check them out. Then come and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
Kim
