Just Add Ink #414 Window/ Frame




Hello all,
another week has gone past filled with freezing cold winds, and a sky dark as night when I have to crawl, with some reluctance, out of bed in the morning at much too early an hour! Perhaps to counter the winter darkness I bring you a card filled to the brim with colour this week for the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Nikki has asked us to Just Add a Window or Frame. I decided to go Window.




There was a fair bit of hand trimming and die cutting involved for this project but very worthwhile for creating a underwater scene filled with colour (and a hint of a mermaid). The first thought that crossed my mind was a porthole looking out into the ocean but somehow my porthole ended up with a life preserver framing it. (Created by cutting several layers of frame and one acetate circle to sandwich between them. I also added a little dimension by colouring some shadows onto the top layer using SU! grey blend markers. The twinkle of little silver fish finish off the underwater scene.

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of beautiful projects to share with you so please do go check them out. Then come back and join us in the challenge!

Thanks for visiting,
Kim

Just Add Ink #413 Colour




Hello there,
winter is starting to kick in here this week, in fact snow on the mountains is forecast for the weekend! To counter act that wintery blast we have a very colourful challenge for you at Just Add Ink. This week Di has asked us to Just Add a Colour combo. I just loved this bright combination!



I couldn't resist the ombre tones here and going blue to green made me think of the ocean.




I kept the fussy bits stripped back on this as I wanted a more masculine feel, adding in some texture with the stitched line details and the watercolored sea panel. Those tiny fish are tiny but utterly adorable and I love how the silver foil gleams. The colours in this just make me happy and I was really pleased how it turned out.

The Just Add Ink DT have a gorgeous array of projects to show you so please go check them out and then join us in the challenge!

Thanks for visiting,
Kim
