Just Add Ink #374 | Just Add Inspiration

Hello to you. Welcome to you and welcome to another Just Add Ink Challenge. We have an ispiration picture for you. It's dark, its broody, it's rustic, it's textural and it also involves one of my favourite beverages - COFFEE!!!

I thought that the colours and the elements were perfect for a Father's Day card. Father's Day here in Australia is the first Sunday in September and this challenge has come just in time for me to make a card for my kids to give to their dad. What dad doesn't love coffee?

While my card today is quite basic in it's approach to the challenge I'm loving the dramatic look with the Basic Black cardstock, the constrasting Whisper White Cardstock and then the dark, rustic Wood Textures DSP.  Perfect for a Father's Day inspired card.

 To add an extra element I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to splatter some ink around the Whisper White cardstock boarder. This also makes the Whisper White layer look less stark , adding to the dramatic look.

How fabulous is the new 7/8" Striped Ribbon from the up coming Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue???? I'm a sucker for anything Black and White and I'm loving it teamed up with the Burlap Ribbon and the Wood Textures DSP. Gorgeous!!! Not only is it great for your Christmas/Holiday Creations but it is fabulous for everything else too! I think I'm going to be using a lot of this gorgeous ribbon. Put it on your wish list so that you can order it come September 1st.
