Just Add Ink #533 'S'


Hello there,
I had fun this week snatching a little bit of time to colour for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Tina is asking us to Just Add 'S'. That means the main element of your project must begin with the letter 'S'. It could be a pattern - like stripes or scallops, or an animal - snake or snail, or be a card fold like a shadow or shaker card. The possibilities are almost endless!

I'm in Christmas crafting mode so the obvious 'S' for me was Santa!

I coloured up Santa and his two reindeers, then created a forest scene to place them in using dies. It took a while to get all the pieces coloured, cut and arranged but it did turn out pretty cute - so worth the effort!

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of fun 'S' projects to show you, so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,

SU! Unless otherwise noted

Just Add Ink #531 Inspiration

Hello there,
we are in that rapid approach to Christmas now so you'll see more Christmas projects from me, including this week! This week at Just Add Ink Lou has asked us to Just Add Inspiration, and what a fun and colourful inspiration picture it is!

All those oh so colourful pom pom Christmas trees inspired me to create my own rainbow of trees.

I stamped a lot of trees in different colours, die cut them out, then began mixing, matching and balancing colour. The end result is very bright and happy and all I needed to add to finish it all off was some wink of stella and gold cord.

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of fabulous projects to show you so please go check them out then come back and join in the challenge.
