Just Add Ink Challenge #169

Hey Everyone

Delys has found a beautiful photo for this weeks inspiration challenge at Just Add Ink. Have a look at these gorgeous colours in the photo:


A few of the girls from the Design Team have gone for very creative backgrounds on their cards, so I decided to give it a go too.  I found this gorgeous card on Pinterest and loved the effect the technique gave to the background.  I took inspiration from the three silhouettes in the photo and added three black banners with a black rolled rose, black buttons and black leaves.  I sponged Midnight Muse and Melon Mambo onto my card, but looking at it now the colours aren’t as vibrant as the inspiration photo.

Anyway, here’s my card:

JAI #169 Narelle

We’d love for you to join us this week, so head over to Just Add Ink and check out the wonderful cards the Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. The colours are simply gorgeous

  2. You have done such a lovely job on that background Narelle, the soft tones are perfect for the pop of black. xxx

  3. Love your vintage take on the background Narelle – just beautiful. I think the banners are a great idea – really eye catching, just like the figures in the picture! xxx

  4. Thanks so much for the shout out and link Narelle! Your card turned out stunning! Love the color combo and the black just sets it off. Very elegant!
