This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is an inspiration picture. I adore this photo – there are so many on trend elements you can use on your project. I especially love the copper jug.
I tried to carry over as many of the elements from the pic as I could. I’ve had my Stampin’ Up! Copper Foil Sheets sitting on my desk for a while now and thought this weeks challenge was the perfect time to use them. Does anyone else not want to use products as you don’t want to waste them? That’s me with these sheets – even though I know I can buy more…..
For the background of my card I ink up Hardwood with some Smoky Slate Ink and finger-walked the stamp over Whisper White cardstock. The DSP paper is from a retired pack called Urban Underground Specialty DSP. I’ve cut this circle with my Circle Framelits. The Whisper White circle is cut with my Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.
The copper sentiment is a cut with a new-to-me die called Happy Birthday Thinlit Die. I know I will be getting a lot of use out of this one! The leaves are cut with Stylish Stems Framelit Dies (retired) and Flourish Thinlits Dies. The little yellow flowers are from Garden in Bloom and they are stamped in So Saffron. I’ve used a strip of Copper Foil and Burlap Ribbon under everything, but you can only see a smidge of them. I really must learn to cut a small piece for each end, rather than the whole piece…..that way I wouldn’t have to worry about wasting them! 😉
Here’s my card:
