Just Add Ink #605 Inspiration


Hello there,
the new challenge at Just Add Ink inspired me to pull a set out of my stash that I've had least year and never seen ink. I'm sure some you are familiar with that phenomena! This week we are asking you to Just Add Inspiration suggested by no other than me. Here's the inspiration pic.

I went with a fairly clean masculine vibe for this one.

Texture, stitched detail and twine add the extra interest here, but I hope somewhat subtly as I wanted the coastal scene to be the real draw. You can actually see something very similar to this along the southern coast of Australia on the Great Ocean Road.

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

Thanks for visiting,

Recipe: All SU! unless noted.

Just Add Ink #603 Colour


Hello there,
it has been a while but I'm back to blogging. Given I'm feeling a bit rusty I kept my project for this week's Just Add Ink challenge fairly classic and simple. This week Nikki is asking us to Just Add a Colour Combo. Here are the colours.

Hand-Penned Petals has quickly become one of my go to stamps sets for making quick but good looking cards. I did added some extra shading to the centre of the pink flowers and leaves by adding extra ink with a just moist aqua painter. Given this will probably serve as a sympathy card I decided to leave off any sparkle elements. Instead the wood grain background, ribbon and twine add those extra interest elements.

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