Just Add Ink 175 sketch

Doesn't time fly! I can't believe it's that time of week again - Just Add Ink challenge time!!!!

Mae's given us a fantastic sketch to play with and I had fun paying with my goodies from Stampin' UP!'s new catalogue.

I stamped the sentiment tag in Crisp Cantaloupe and cut out the 'something' and popped it up on dimensionals which ties in with the ruffled ribbon..... have I mentioned how much I love the ruffled ribbon!!!!

I've used
Paper - Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Crisp Cantaloupe

Ink - Crumb Cake and Crisp Cantaloupe
Stamp Set - Chalk Talk and Gorgeous Grunge

Other: Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon, Seam binding and a paper clip

Here's the sketch:

Just Add Ink 173 - Add Water

Just Add Ink have a fun challenge this week of just add Water!!!
Pop on over to the blog to see how we came up with this inspiration idea and how the other design team members have interpreted it!

Just add water can be interpreted in so many ways and I've done it in two ways on my card.

Firstly I've used a stamp that depicts the ocean and I've also used my aqua pen dipped in some ink and then brushed it over my background to create water!

It's  bit hard to see but I've also scored two lines at the bottom of the card just to add a little extra detail with out it being over powering.

I can't wait to see your water creation so don't forget to link up here.

Happy Friday

Grey Butterflies

Today I had few minutes to play in my craft room and wondered what I should make!
So I headed to a few of my favourite challenge blogs to see what was on offer.

I decided to mesh 3 challenges into one card - Less is more #127, Freshly made sketches #93 and Case Study #148

I tried to make this card clean and simple but I really feel like I need to add more (bling, paper piercing etc) but I resisted and left it as is.....

Here are the challenges I've entered:

Less is more -

Freshly made sketches -

CASE Study -

I hope you've had a lovely relaxing weekend.
