JAI #381: Just Choose Two

Hi!

Welcome to a new challenge!


This week Jan has set the challenge for us at Just Add Ink, and it's a Just Choose Two week.


As you can see, you need to choose two from embossing paste, colouring and sequins. Now, if you had of asked me a couple of weeks ago, I would have said I'd most likely go for the paste and colouring, but to my surprise, I went for sequins instead of the paste.

I actually started this card with the intent of using it in last night's Art With Heart blog hop, but somewhere along the way I realised it would be better for this week's JAI challenge.

I started with a piece of the garden themed Just Add Colour SDSP. I was only going to colour a few bits and pieces of the design with my watercolour pencils, but before I knew it, I'd coloured the whole piece. It was far too busy to use sit the girl from Garden Girl on top, so I decided to tone down the SDSP with vellum. I decided to stitch it down, and then thought that I may as week go the whole hog and turn it into a shaker card by adding sequins under the vellum.

I really loved colouring the girl from Garden Girl, but I think this little bit on the inside is my favourite part. I recently made a similar scene for an ATC swap I hosted, and thought that a simpler version of it would be a great way to finish off the inside.

You canopy on over to see what the rest of the DT at Just Add Ink have made for the Just Choose Two challenge. They re all fabulous, as usual!

Bye for now,

Tina
