Just Add Ink #296 - Just Add Nature

I just had to have my first play with this new stamp set, Grateful Bunch, for this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge, brought to You by team member Di Barnes - Just Add Nature. 

At first I was so drawn to this stamp set just for that line of lace! Isn't it pretty! I'm really drawn to pretty elements like that! Upon looking at the set even more I'm loving the flowers and the other elements. I'm also loving that it also has a co-ordinating punch for those flowers. I have some more ideas for this stamp set so watch this space!


The row of lace along the border I've embossed with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and this makes  the black more defined and more dare I say it more 'black' and bold. Sometimes when stamping with just black ink it doesn't come out as 'black' and dark as I want it. So using the Black Stampin' Emboss Powder really draws out that dark colour.


I've highlighted all that black darkness with some little bright pops of colour using Hello Honey and Calypso Coral. Just pretty! Its all finished off with some Venetian Crochet Trim, Burlap Ribbon, Linen Thread and some Gold Metallic Thread. Lots of my favourite trims and embellishments.


I hope that you've enjoyed this project and it gets you inspired to play along with our challenge. Be sure to pop on over to the Just Add Ink site, check out what the Design Team created and share your nature creations with us! So looking forward to seeing what you make!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. This is so beautiful Rochelle! I love the definition of the lace stamp and how well it sits amongst your crochet and burlap trims. The delicate flowers and touches of gold together all make for a very beautiful card! xx
