Just Add Ink #410 Inspiration



Hello there,
doing a happy dance here as we have a long weekend this weekend and I am looking forward to some relaxing! Think reading on the couch in the sun, maybe a movie, and I hope some stamping too. Last weekend I was successful in finding some time and so I have a very colourful card for you today that just makes me happy. This week at Just Add Ink Jo has asked us to Just Add Inspiration and the pic is filled with colour! You can use the colours, objects or patterns in the picture to inspire your project. Here it is.



How could I overlook those colours! I'm not usually a brights girl but this week I ventured down that path, and I brought in the spots you see in the inspiration picture as bokeh.

The inside.


On the inside I reversed the effect and added bright bubbles of colour, toning them down with an additional layer of white ink over the top. 

Tip: To achieve my bokeh effect I made myself a template punching different sized circles into an acetate sheet, so now I have a handy reusable resource!

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of gorgeous projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge!

Thanks for visiting,
Kim

Just Add Ink #409 Eclipse





Hello there,
well after a short unplanned break (too much to do and not enough time to do everything sums it up) I'm back this week. This week at Just Add Ink Rachael has a fun challenge for us. She wants us to Just Add the Eclipse Technique. There are many examples around the web of this fun technique, and now we'd love to see what you do!


Here's what I made, one for my Mum and one for my MIL.



Did you spot my 'MUM' camouflaged within the flower? 

Once I'd coloured my flowers I cut the letters for MUM out, and stacked them onto of 4 white die cuts, to lift my word up and out of the flower. If you tilt the card to the side you can see the dimension of the letters. I glammed everything up with lots of embossing, some Wink of Stella sparkle and with sequins. The tilted frame (from the Swirly Frames stamp set available in June from SU!) was an impromptu addition and I love how it was just perfect to frame my flower.

This proved to be a really fun challenge for me, do go and check out the rest of the Just Add Ink DT for some stunning inspiration and then come and join in the fun!

Thanks for visiting,
Kim
