Just Add Ink #314 - Just Add Inspiration

Hello and Happy Friday to you!!! Here's to the weekend. I hope that it will be a great start to the weekend. My kids have the day off school for Report Writing day so we can have a sleep in, have a fabulous day at home and a little break to our routine. We might even go out for a coffee, for me, and a hot chocolate for the kids. I know they will love that.

This week at Just Add Ink we have an inspiration pic an I can certainly say that I was super stumped with this one. The colours are stunning but I just didn't know what to do with it. After a little chit chat with my fabulous friend Chloe Evans, check out her blog here, I was able to nut out a card. Thanks Chloe!!

My inspiration this week also came from the fabulous sketch challenge this week over at Global Design Project #038.
I started with the side panel and picked out some of the colours from the pic to water colour washed So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry. This then created an ombre, water colour wash type look. I kept going over them with the aqua painter till the blended seamlessly on the card stock and so you couldn't see a definite line from where one colour finished and the other started.

On the card base I got out the Gold Wink of Stella pen, squeezed it till it was pretty much oozing out of the pen and then with my fingernail, used that to flick the brush tip end so that it would splatter across the card. It creates a beautiful, splattered sparkly effect and looks so gorgeous!

The card is then finished off with an embossed vellum circle, then a layer of Shimmery White cardstock and topped off with 'Happy' from the Hello You Thinlits and the 'Birthday' from Crazy About you. I'm really happy how this card turned out and can't wait to send it to someone for their birthday.

Make sure you have a look at the rest of the Just Add Ink gals take on the inspiration pic. You will find all the details on this weeks challenge there too and when posting your creation remember to mention Just Add Ink in your blog post!
