Just Add Ink #395 | Just Add Inspiration

Hello there stampers! Welcome to another Just Add Ink Challenge. We have a gorgeous inspiration picture that is everything pretty in pink. What ever inspires you from the picture, use that as the basis for your creation and then go from there!

I do love pink and pink blossoms at that so that is what I was starting with as the inspiration for my card today. I've coloured a sheet of the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Petal Passion DSP. This beautiful DSP is black and white and lends itself to be coloured. I've coloured those pretty flowers with Pink Pirouette and Old Olive Stampin' Blend Alcohol Markers.  The Blends Markers make colouring a whole 12" x 12" sheet of DSP quick and easy and then you have your own personalised sheet of DSP ready to match any project. Wouldn't the whole sheet look fabulous cut up in a lots One Sheet Wonder cards. The DSP looks great in just black and white also. Either way it really is beautiful DSP!

I've only used a small portion of the coloured DSP and then mixed it with he stripe pattern for a fun background layer. I'm a sucker for black and white stripes so I knew I had to use a bit of it with the floral sheet. You had me at black and white stripes! Love!

The die cuts, the embossed circle and the gold 'Thank You' are all from products from the co-ordinating suite that the Petal Passion DSP comes from in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. It really is such a beautiful suite and you really have to have it all! 

I love the single branch die cut across the front of the card. I did try and layer some flowers or something like that on the branch as we but with the background being quite busy I pulled it all back a bit to get rid of all the extra 'noise'. Finishing the card off with some ribbon, trim and enamel shapes was just enough to complete the look.

Check out the rest of the amazing creations from the fabulous Just Add Ink Design Team gals and what inspired them. It's amazing how we can all see something different from the same picture.
