Just Add Ink Challenge Launch

Hi Everyone,

There's a new challenge blog just starting up... Just Add Ink... Its a great new site with Stampin' Up Demo's running it here in Australia! Yay!!

The challenge was to use these colours:



So in my continuing trend of actually attempting some of my New Year's resolutions (trying lots of new colours from my cardstock stash), here's my entry to the inaugral Just Add Ink Challenge... My only problem is there's now another resolution = join in the JAI challenges as much as possible!! Hope you like my card! And fingers crossed for the Launch Prize of $50 to spend with Stampin' Up! Who wouldn't love that!!!!... If you'd like to join in, simply click here to go to Just Add Ink for all the details.





I've dug out my pastels & blender pens to colour the flower and stem from the Scribble This stamp set... A little versamark for the background stamp from the Sprinkles stamp set.... And simply run each of the torn edges along my ink pad - no fancy tools needed, simply wipe/dab your ink straight from the ink pad onto your cardstock - easy peasy
  Roll

What was fiddly is the pleated ribbon across the bottom... In theory its easy, apply your sticky strip or snail adhesive across the back of your ribbon, fold into individual pleats and stick down as you go... However, I found it a little fiddly making my pleats so small. Hopefully with some more practice, my pleats will improve,it is only the 2nd time I've tried it! lol.


Thanks for looking,

  7. Hi there Richelle, I love that ribbon detail. I haven't been game enough to try the pleating before this challenge, but I think it's a great embellishing trick to have up your sleeve! Great job!
