JAI 182 Just add frames

Hello there,
we've enjoyed a lovely Spring interval only to be plunged back into wintery conditions this week - only to be expected I guess. But it might explain why I gravitated to bright colours for the challenge we have for you this week at Just Add Ink. This week we want you to Just add frames. Check out the rest of the DT for some fun and fabulous ideas for ways to add frames to your project. The first thought that popped into my head was photo negative frames.

Do you see what I mean by bright, but since this is going to be a birthday card for my nephew I figured bright colours were the way to go! Really it was all pretty simple - just a nifty filmstrip die (I knew it would come in handy one day - lol!) and a few black embossed racing cars. The colour change within the filmstrip seems to help create that sense of movement I think. A little bit of splotching detail and it was all done. Yeah I love being prepared ahead of time! Now I just have to get his birthday present sorted :o

Hope you can join us this week at Just Add Ink and have some fun adding frames!
