Just Add Ink #503

Hey Everyone

Welcome to the newest challenge at Just Add Ink. Our challenge this week is for you to:

So I started out with Pencils and Stencils. Then gave up and went with Stencils and Patterned Paper. I created the background using my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and Crumb Cake Ink.  I used washi tape to keep my stencil in place and took a dauber and Crumb Cake Ink to create the background.

The patterned paper came the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  I trimmed the DSP so that the same pattern peaked from each side of the cardstock. I then matted the DSP with Pool Party Cardstock.

The poppies I’ve added to my card are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  These poppies have been coloured with my Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Blends. After I stamped the leaves with Black Memento Ink, I gave them a really quick and light colour with the Light Pool Party Blend. The sentiment I’ve adhered to my card is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. To finish off my card I added a strip of Linen Thread and tied a bow.

The team at Just Add Ink have created gorgeous and varied cards with this challenge. Pop over to Just Add Ink and check them out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #417

Hey Everyone

Welcome to the first sketch challenge for 2020 at Freshly Made Sketches. Our sketch designer this week is the super talented Judy Rozema.

I am loving the pretty papers in the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The piece I’ve used was the starting point on my card.  It’s Petal Pink in colour and has a lovely script running across it.  The flowers I’ve added to my card are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  The leaves have been coloured with a combination of Petal Pink Ink and highlighted with Poppy Parade Ink.  The Mint Macaron leave are cut the Cherry Blossoms Dies.  To tie in with the DSP, I added a strip of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon under the sentiment and some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards using this weeks sketch.  Head over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.
