Just Add Ink #59 and Exciting News!


I have some exciting news today - I have been asked to be a Guest Designer on Just Add Ink!  I'm so excited!  I can't wait to see what they have in store for me.  Thanks so much to Delys and Bron and the rest of the JAI team for the wonderful opportunity to be a part of a fantastic team.

Today's card is for their current challenge, which is a sketch challenge.  You can see the sketch here.

I love all the soft pinks in this card.  I used the Sweet and Sour Speciality DSP as the main base for the card, and went with the coordinating colours for the rest of the card.

To create the main panel I stamped the All A Flutter butterfly twice in Rose Red, masked it and then stamped En Francais over the top in Pretty In Pink ink.

I was about to assemble the pieces of the card when I took another look at the sketch.  I had forgotten a layer, so I decided to add the scalloped section.

To create the larger scallops I punched a 1 1/4" circle and traced it on the cardstock.  I then cut along the lines and sponged the edges for a bit of pop.

Stamps: All A Flutter, En Francais, Great Friend
Ink: Rose Red, Pretty In Pink
DSP/Cardstock: Sweet and Sour Speciality DSP, Rose Red, Very Vanilla
Other: Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber, Paper Snips, Very Vanilla 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Stamp Positioner, 1 1/4" Circle L Punch
