Just Add Ink "D"

Hello there,
last weekend it was Father's Day here in Australia and I ended up in a last minute rush to make cards for my Dad and FIL. Luckily, I also had to make a project for this week's Just Add Ink project which just happened to be perfectly suited for this occasion. This week Tina wants you to Just Add 'D'.

The idea is that the main element of your project needs to start with D. It could be a dog, donut or a diorama card. I choose "Dad" which is another D option.

I couldn't go past using these fun tools for my Dad, who was an awesome handyman in his day. I coloured them up and then added some gloss by coating the handles with glue (Fine Tip glue) and letting it dry. The peg board I created by using a die (row of small circles) that comes with the Mini Treat Bag thinlets.

Our "D" gives you lots of options so please join us and don't forget to check out the fun projects from the rest of the Just Add Ink DT.

Thanks for visiting,
