Just Add Ink #389 Inspiration


Hello there,
December crept up on me and now I swear it's accelerating at light speed! Despite the increasing festive craziness I did make time for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Kelly is asking us to Just Add Inspiration. The inspiration picture is just perfect for Christmas! Here's the picture. You can use the colours, patterns or elements in the picture to inspire your project.


Here's what I came up with.




The foliage tied with twine in the inspiration photo made think of an ornament hanging from the Christmas tree and so that's how I ended up with my hanging heart. Lots of die cutting in this one and I added some interest by mixing in a bunch of different greens to create some depth.

The Just Add Ink DT have a gorgeous array of projects please go check them out and then come back and show us your project!

Thanks for visiting,
Kim

Just Add Ink #388 Glitter


Hi there,
heavens knows what came over me this week, I knew I had to make a project for the new challenge at Just Add Ink (this week Rochelle is asking us to Just Add Glitter) and being pressed for time I was delighted to realise that a card I made for my April OnStage presentation using Colourful Seasons (that I had never posted) was just perfect. So instead of carefully detaching the exisiting sentiment (a non-Christmas one) what do I decide to do, remake it five times!! 


Here's how it all turned out.


My photo shoot helpers (the cards survived unscathed, well except the one that she (on the right) managed to bite before I could stop her! Would you mind getting a card with one tooth mark in a corner?




The most time consuming element of the card was probably the die cutting (because the snowflakes are so intricate) and layering of the silver glimmer snowflakes on top of the Dapper Denim ones. This gives a subtle but distinct shadow effect that is hard to capture in the photos. Worth doing but fiddly especially when you do it five times over! The inky background was created by sponging the colour on, spattering with water, then Wink of Stella, then adding some white gel pen dots.

The Just Add Ink DT have some gorgeously glittered projects so please stop by and see them and then come back and show us your project!

Kim
