Just Add Ink #264 - I Think You're Great

It's Friday! WOOHOO! That means a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week is a sketch challenge brought to you by Design Team Member, Kim.

I've got some sneaky peeks for you (if you haven't see them already) ahead of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue going live next week on June 2nd. EEEEKK!!! So exciting!
I'm using one of the new 2015 - 2017 In Colours - Watermelon Wonder and a new stamp set that we got at the South Pacific Convention, I Think You're Great.
The Watermelon Wonder is a bright colour, it's bold and it really 'pops' off the page. 

I've used a technique called 'Kissing' on the main image. It's an oldie but a goodie. 
I inked up the main solid image that has the sentiment 'I Think You're Great' on in and then used one of the pattered stamps from the set and, leaving it uninked, kissed it against the inked stamp. This then picks up some of the ink on the inked up stamp and leaves the image from the uninked stamp. It really is quite easy and gives a great effect. And as we were told at convention, every time you 'kiss' the stamps together you must make the kissing sound. MWAH!!

On this card the background is one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge. I stamped it with Versamark, pour over heat and stick powder, shook off the excess, heated it up till it became tacky and then poured over the Gold Stampin' Glitter. So sparkly! FYI that stuff gets everywhere!!!!!

  1. I like the texture of your glittery bits - must have been a quite messy process but it certainly looks great. I'm intrigued at how you got the ribbon to fold around the v so smoothly. Thanks also for your kind words over the month. It's been a great experience for me.

  2. Love how you used the lace two ways Rochelle and that glittery gold background is fabulous - love the idea of using gold glitter this way! xxx

  3. This is gorgeous Rochelle! I too love your glittery background and the layers of lace and softness. Just fabulous! xx

  4. Ohhh great to see the new colours used - the lace looks great. I love the glittery background. Chantell JAI

  5. Lots of glittery gold goodness here, and I love how you've layered the new lace over your gold banner. The lace trim at top and bottom looks pretty awesome too. x

  6. That watermelon colour is so delicious and love it against the kraft CS. And love the gold glitter you've scattered, its so pretty! Gorgeous card and how lucky to get to use things before everyone else!!
