JAI #286: Just Add W


This week we have a new type of challenge at Just Add Ink.  It's a bit of an "anything goes" type theme, but with a twist! The twist being that we will give you a letter of the alphabet and this shapes your creation.  Confused? You shouldn't be - it's very easy! To kick of this new challenge type we have given you the letter W, now just go forth and create using things, techniques or themes that start with W. Think wood, waves, watercolouring, Wisteria Wonder, wire, etc. See - easy!

I've gone with Webs and Witches to create a Halloween shaker easel card. I wanted to make a card to send to my nieces for Halloween, but I don't actually have any Halloween stamps. Luckily my dilemma was solved when I received my Seasonal Snapshot PL Cards Collection, which has a selection of Halloween cards. I went with two of the 3x4 inch cards to use on my easel card. 

When I saw the PL card I used for the front of my card I thought it would make an excellent base for a Shaker card, and I think I was right!  I used my 1 3/4 inch circle punch to create the window (another W!). The witch punchies are from a non-SU punch that I bought years ago.  They are very cute - only about 1cm tall/wide, so great to use in a shaker card.  I threw in a few gold star sequins to add a little something extra to the window.  I had hoped to punch some witches out of the new Black Glimmer Paper but the tiny punch just wouldn't cope with the weight of the paper.

Some more webs and witches on the base of the card. The witches are popped up on tiny pieces of Dimensionals so they look like they are flying.  I stamped the sentiment using my Alphabet Rotary Stamp - a 'must have' tool for creating sentiments when you don't have the right stamp!

So, are the Wheels turning in your head (see what I did there? LOL!)? The Design Team have used a heap of different W things on their cards - you can pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog to see their fabulous cards.

Bye for now,
