Just Add Ink challenge #298 - Just Add 'V'



This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun challenge for you! We want you to add something that starts with 'V'. I decided to go with the obvious choice of Valentine's Day since it is only a few days away! My hubby had to fly out to Africa this week and won't be here for the special day so I snuck this card into his suitcase before he left.


I stamped the heart onto watercolour paper with Versamark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder and then water coloured it. 

Supplies: 
Stamps: Heart from Neat & Tangled, sentiment from Technique Tuesday
Other: MFT Stamps dienamics, sequins
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black Ink

Just Add Ink Challenge #296 - Just Add Nature



Hi friends :)

It's time for a fun challenge over on the Just Add Ink blog, we are adding a bit of nature to our cards this week!

I decided to use some leaves for my nature card and I created them by using some fun dies from My Favorite Things. I created the backgrounds to the leaves using distress ink and water before overlaying the skeleton of the leaf.  I had so much fun that I did the same card in two different colours. 

I hope you will play along with us this week and I look forward to seeing your creations!
