JAI #323 Just add F
well I have had an eventful week. I am making great strides in mastering my new computer and am almost feeling at home with it all. Well until I hit the next 'what do I do now or how did I do that' moment. My milestone for this week was to relearn photo editing, tune in next week to see the results! Now on to this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Tina wants you to Just Add F. Add F? you ask. That means the main focus of your project must be something beginning with F. This could be a thing - like a fox, a fish a flamingo, a colour like Flirty Flamingo, a technique or fold like faux stitching or a file fold. As you can see there is lots of scope to let your imagination go. I'm still having lots of fun playing with my new Fox Builder punch so a fox it was.
It's always handy to have a baby card or two in the stash so I decided to go with that for my theme. I thought the colours of the A Little Foxy DSP was perfectly suited for a baby card (maybe more so a boy ?) so pulled that out to pick a pattern. I did load a few layers onto this one, mixing dry embossing, DSP, vellum and a dash of florals and foliage. Points to note - behind the fox I sponged a fair bit of white ink to tone down the blue there and all the flowers had a splash of wink of stella layered over them. It took some fiddling but I was happy with how it all came together in the end.
Hope you can in the fun this week. Don't forget to stop by the rest of the DTs blog they will wow you with their fun 'F' projects!
