Just Add Ink #262

Hey Everyone

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge.  Take a look at these great colours:


I came up with something different than I normally do – I created a scene with a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that is new to me – Moon Lake.  To get the reflection of the boat in the water I stamped the boat image onto a window sheet and then pressed it down onto the cardstock. I created the water by sponging Pool Party ink onto the cardstock and the sky by dulling down the Pool Party ink on a piece of scrap first.  To get a bit of a sunset glow I sponged Calypso Coral lightly on the cardstock. I then used my blender pen to colour the tree and boat.  I used my white gel pen to draw in the little waves.  I love this sentiment from Butterfly Basics – I think it really finished off my card.


I love how the design team have created very different cards to inspire you.  Head over to Just Add Ink and check them out.

Thanks for stopping by.
