JAI#63 - Inspiration Challenge!

Well if you like challenges then the one over at Just Add Ink this week will surely do your head in...it did to a lot of the Design Team...blame Delys for this one, she gave us the following photo to get inspiration from - whether it be the colour scheme, the theme or whatever!


This is what I came up with using elements in the photo for inspiration to decorate my box...this could also have been submitted for last week's challenge to 'Just Add a Bag or a Box' which I hadn't got around to doing at that time.



Close-ups will show you the little details of a braided gold cord, tiny tags and a Tempting Turquoise border to reflect blue band on the outfits above...


Stamps: Tiny Tags
Inks: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
Cardstock/Paper: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Jolly Holiday DSP
Accessories:Big Shot, Fancy Favor Big XL Die, 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Real Red Ribbon, Gold Thread, Adhesive


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog and see how the rest of the Design Team were inspired not by THAT photo!  Apparently Delys has a FEW of these inspirational photos stored away for future use...so you never know when another might pop up for a future challenge at JAI.

Anyway, we would love you to join in the fun too...go on I dare you!

Clever little 'extra' detail in this box, Mae. A great take on a difficult challenge.

I love the way you 'got around' THAT inspiration pic with your clever box. Such a fab idea to go with embellishments. Well done Mae!
