Just Add Ink #513 Choose Two




Hello there,
welcome to a new Just Add Ink challenge! This week Di has asked us to Just Choose Two. This time it's Flowers OR Trees OR Texture and you need to choose two of them for your project. My flower stamp collection is ever expanding so the flower choice was obvious and I thought texture was a good match so that's what I went with. 


Here's how it turned out.




Trying to work out the ink combinations for the flowers was a very inky process but in the end I came up with something that I was happy with. For my pink and yellow blooms I worked out that a stamped off layer was actually the best way to get the right shade to start with. I built texture in using several elements  First, I embossed my main panel with the 'Subtle' folder first then the 'Bricks and Mortar' folder. Stitched elements add another layer, then a double layered twine bow* and clear gems, plus a swish of wink of Stella finish it all off. 

*To get the white twine I pulled the blue twine thread out from the Flowers for Every Season twine. I little fiddly but doable.

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of fabulous projects to show you so please go check them out.

Just Add Ink #508 'F'




Hello there,
well Winter officially began this week and you can certainly feel it! However, on the upside that does mean quality time snuggled up at home with the heaters on. I did spend a lot of time inside colouring and fussy cutting for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. This week Tina is asking us to Just Add 'F'. That means the main element of your project must be something beginning with 'F'. It could be an animal - think 'frog", or a technique, think "faux" or a fancy fold like "flip flap" or "flower pot" card. This was a no brainer for me, 'F' is for flowers - and I had some new ones to play with!



Here's how it turned out.





I was thinking wildflower meadow - so lots of different flowers and lots of colours and I got to say I love how it turned out. It took a lot of colouring and a lot of fussy cutting, and I think I used every Blend colour there is, but it's so pretty! All I did to finished it all off was add a swish of Wink of Stella over all the flowers. I love the new embossing folder texture too - sooo versatile.

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

Thanks for visiting,
Kim
