Just Add Ink #491

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink for you.  This week is inspiration picture week.  I am loving the softness to this photo and it makes me want one of those pink beach houses!

The created I card has palm trees and pink/purple tropical flowers.  I daubed the background with Sahara Sand Ink to mimic the sandy beach.    The stamp set I used is for my is called Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. The reason I chose this set is because of the palm trees and hibiscus flowers – it matched the picture perfectly!

To create longer palm trees, I cut the stems and hid the joins with my flowers and sentiment. To colour the palms, I applied Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso Markers directly to the stamp.  I used my breath to huff on the stamp before stamping it on to Whisper White Cardstock.  I repeated this process so I had two sets of palms to fussy cut out.  I then inked up my flowers with Black Memento Ink and coloured them with Flirty Flamingo and Purple Posy Blends.

The sentiment I used on my card is also from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.  I cut this sentiment into two before placing them amongst my layering. I added some Linen Thread to finish off my card.

The team at Just Add Ink have created wonderful cards using the picture for inspiration.  Head over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Narelle
