JAI 250 Just add Inspiration

Hello there,
its been well a crazy week here this week to say the least so this is going to be short and sweet. This week at Just Add Ink we have a great challenge for you from Trish. We want you to Just Add Inspiration. There are lots of great things in the picture to get you started!

The polka dots really grabbed me and I love the soft mix of tones so that is what I pulled from the inspiration picture. Creating the background was alot of fun - I used the SU! dot stencil and outlined each dot with a marker and then used an aquapainter to pick up ink from the ink pads to fill in the dots.

Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT to see some wonderful projects! Hope you can join us this week.

  1. How fabulous are those dot's! Very clever use of the stencil Kim, it's such a great effect. Your choice of colours are divine! xxx

  2. Such a beautiful card Kim! Your flowers are so striking and love the way you've created the dots by using the stencil - so clever :-)

  3. I absolutely love the way you've coloured the dots, and how the ink has bled across the outline randomly. It looks very professional! So love that you too picked up on the gorgeous colours tucked under that cup - this card is SO lovely. xox

  4. This is really beautiful Kim! I love the little gift bag you made to match too that was in your latest post :)

  5. Oh wow Kim - this is just gorgeous! Did you need my address to send it to me or do you have it already? (haha)

  6. What a beautiful card Kim!! I was looking at the background wondering how you'd created it... so glad you told us how! I'll be giving that technique a try :)

  7. Wow, those flowers are gorgeous and love how you layered them on the card as the stars they are!!! Bet whoever received this card will be holding on to it for a very long time indeed!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
