JAI #282 Just add inspiration

Hello there,
well I have survived (barely) the first week of the school holidays. Keeping the munchkins entertained meant not a lot of stamping time. So it's just as well that I was able to prepare for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge early!! This week we have a gorgeous Just Add Inspiration challenge from Narelle.

I thought this was perfect for a couple of little girl cards I had to make.

I couldn't resist making a blue version too.

For my initial card I wanted to capture the silver/grey tones, pink of course and all the circle and swirly elements. For my backgrounds I stamped rows of dots (Smokey slate stamped off) and then I stamped again in Versamark (offsetting the dots slightly and embossed them with Iridescent Ice powder. My two fairy girls I coloured with Copics, then mounted over the top of swirly cut silver glimmer paper, grounding them with the sentiment. The cards were finished off with a scattering of color coordinated sequins. They both turned out super sparkly, super cute and super fun!

Hope you can join us. We'd love to see where inspiration takes you! Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT for some wonderful projects.
