Just Add Ink #280 - Just Add Glimmer

Another Friday and challenge for Just Add Ink. This weeks challenge is brought to you by Nikki. It is a sparkly one too - Just Add Glimmer. I'm expecting lots of Oohs and Ahhs when you link up your creations to this weeks challenge. You may have the same reaction when you check out what the rest of the Design Team have created.

I knew when I saw this weeks challenge on the challenge list that I wanted to use the Striped Scallop Thinlit die with the Gold Glimmer Paper. And thats about where the idea stopped! So off to my other favourite site (other than Just Add Ink of course) Pinterest to get the creative juices flowing. Eventually I put this card together.

While on my search for some inspiration I cam across this colour combo Crumb Cake/Kraft, Island Indigo, Gold Glimmer, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. The ideas were flowing again.

I only used Whisper White though because I have this really anal thing about putting Whisper White and Very Vanilla together and I just can't do it! HA! 

Becuase the Winter Wonderland Vellum layer and the Stripped Scallop Die make the card quite busy I thought that it didn't really need much stamping or embellishing.

So I dotted a few sequins around, used a Gold Foil doily and finished the card of with a basic gold button. I think I met this weeks breif with Just Adding Glimmer and I am really looking forward to seeing how you add some glimmer.

Make sure you check out the Just Add Ink Design Team and their glimmery and glitzy creations! There is certainly a lot of sparke this week! They are an amazing bunch of crafters, that's for sure!

Thakns so much for stopping by!

  3. This is so pretty Rochelle! I too love the pop of the gold scallops against the indigo and your beautiful layers of gold, vellum and burlap are exquisite. xo

  4. I'm oohing and ahhing over this! I never would have thought to combine glimmer with burlap but I love how the two look together. Fabulous design!
