JAI #219: Just Add Inspiration


Here we are again at the end of another busy week.  I don't know about you, but I'm hanging out for some time in my crafting space to get inky!  If you are too, why don't you give our latest challenge at Just Add Ink a go?

This week Trish has put together this Inspiration Board as a focus for our challenge.  What do you see in it?  I went with both the colours and the shapes for my card.

I was asked to make a birthday card for a man turning 25.  I wanted to make something that was a bit edgy and masculine, and I think I've achieved the look.

The base panel was created using my markers.  I just hand drew the lines across the piece of cardstock using my Summer Starfruit, Smokey Slate and Midnight Muse Stampin' Write Markers.  The lines are a bit wobbly and some are thicker than others, but that was exactly the look I was going for.

I also drew a few stripes on the inside and overlaid them with some left over triangles from the front of the card.

What are you going to pull from the Just Add Ink Inspiration Board to inspire your cardmaking?  I can't wait to see!

Bye for now,



  1. Love the idea of the hand drawn DSP Tina - it looks great and is very on trend This turned out a really striking guy card! xxx

  2. A bold, masculine card. I love the triangles and the hand drawn lines - very clever! Lou xo
