Just Add Ink #451 Inspiration

Hello there,
between being swamped with work lately and spending time on weekends on kid related activities - think netball, cricket, gym, homework, clothes shopping, well things have been busy. I did make time for the new Just Add Ink challenge though! This week Jo is asking us to Just Add Inspiration. Use the colours, patterns, or objects in the inspiration photo to inspire your project. Here's the picture.

The windows are such a big element of the inspiration picture they made me think of creating a frame for my entire card. I also pulled in the colours and expanded on the flower element. Here's how it turned out.

I stamped and masked a (one layer) flower pattern moving out from the bottom left corner. Then mounted the frame over the top using the side off cuts from the edges of a sheet of mini Stampin Dimensionals. Then added a sentiment over the top. Wink of Stella over all my flowers and sequins add that important sparkle.

So how did I do it? Well the best way to explain it is with a picture. All up I spent not much more than 5 minutes playing around with all my rectangle framelits, using them like puzzle pieces to see what arrangement worked best within the largest card front size frame lit. As it turned out I had to use one framelit twice, but it was easy to reposition it and run the panel through my Big Shot a second time.

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of wonderful inspiration for you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.
