Don't you just love joining in with the Just Add Ink weekly challenges, I know I do. If I am stuck for an idea, need further inspiration or feel like I have lost my mojo then this is a great place to start. With colour, theme or sketch challenges you always have something to spark off an idea or project and you can of course go back to past challenges for additional inspiration and ideas from those who join in either on a regular basis or when the mood takes them, plus of course those projects submitted regularly by the Design Team!
This week it is a sketch challenge...
I often use the JAI challenges to help me get started on commissioned cards, such as the one my mum requested as my parents have been invited to a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration - now that is a goal to aim for! Here is the card I made. I think I need some more practice at blurring the edges of my photos when I want to add a romantic or softer touch - I might just get some direct tips this weekend while I am visiting Tania Gould as she has a tutorial posted on her blog which I followed, although I have a slightly different software program, however, the process is very similar. I thought I was also very clever with using a prop in my photo a ring I knew my daughter had and which I thought might complement my project!
Here is a close-up of my greeting...
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentimentsr
Paper/Cardstock: Bushed Gold (from Brushed Metallic pack), Basic Gray, Lap of Luxury DSP
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet, Lattice Embossing Folder, Curly Label Extra-Large, Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim (Summer Mini), Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, heat gun
