Just Add Ink #259 - Just Add Sequins

This week at Just Add Ink, Patrice has come up with this weeks theme - Just Add Sequins. 

I really wanted to show off the 2013-2015 In Colour Sequins and use my favourite colours, the 2013-2015 In Colours. These colours will be retiring this year and there may even be a tear or two shed when that happens.


There was quite a process to this card and it took quite a while to put together but I really love the sparkly effect that the sequins give. It's quite hard to capture that in the photo how sparkly they are! 


Because there are other sequin shapes in the 2013-2015 In Colour sequin assortment I had to sort out all the circle ones and then I stuck a Jumbo Sticky Round on the circle and stuck each sequin down one by one. It was much easier that way and there was no glue mess!

All finished off with my favourite thinlits and stamp set at the moment. I love the Hello You Thinlits and the Crazy About You set. They are so versatile and I really love the size of the words on the stamp set. Not too big and not too small.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team and all their sparkly goodness and come and join in the fun!
