Just Add Ink Challenge #236 - Inspiration Challenge

Hello! It's time for a fun Inspiration Challenge over at Just Add Ink this week and I love this image, there are so many different ideas that come from it.



My first instinct was to go with the peacock theme but since I didn't have any peacock or feather stamps I decided to use the cake and colours as my inspiration.

To add more interest to the sentiment I stamped it first in Island Indigo ink and then again in Cool Caribbean to create a shadow effect.


Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Cardstock/Ink: Stampin' Up! Night of Navy, Old Olive and some gold card
Other: Dies by MFT, Flowers by Kaiser, Stitching, Impression plate by Papertrey Ink.

Just Add Ink Challenge #230 - Just Add Dad

Hello friends!

With Father's Day just a few days away here in Australia, we thought this week would be a great time to have a masculine card challenge over at Just Add Ink.  If you don't want to necessarily make a Father's Day card, feel free to make a general masculine themed card.

Here is what I made for this week's challenge. I pulled out a very old stamp set from Stamp It which I coloured and and then cut out before mounting onto the centre panel.


Supplies:
Stamp: Nautical Trio from Stamp It, sentiment is from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: All card and DSP from Stampin' Up!
Other: Copic Markers, scalloped border punch and embossing folder from SU!
