Just Add Ink #321 - Just Add Paper piecing!

Hello Hello happy Friday to you all!!!

This week the challenge at Just Add Ink is paper piecing :)
What is paper piecing.... well my understanding is it's about using pieces of paper and piece them together or into place.

So I've used some DSP and pieced it in the place of a shirt for this little birthday boy.

I made this card with a little birthday boy in mind who is turning 2 this weekend and we'll be attending his party - and the weather looks like it 's going to be amazing!

I've winked up his balloon but after photographing it I think I should have used some crystal effects instead.

It's the first time that I've used my copics in a long time so it took me a little while to colour this guy in.

I'd love to see your interpretation of paper piecing so please join in the challenge here.

If you need a little more inspiration pop over to the JAI blog and check out the other Design Team creations.

Just Add Ink #319 - Inspiration photo

Hi everyone!
There's a fun inspiration photo challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

I found the image to be very Christmas looking given that wreaths are generally hung on doors at Christmas time!

As you can see I've taken inspiration from the wreath and created a black, white and red wreath (with a little splash of gold)

I was originally thinking that I wasn't going to create something with a Christmas theme but as it all came together I couldn't help but put a Christmas greeting on it.
The colours are so versatile that I probably could have used several different types of sentiments!

It's probably a little hard to tell from the photos but I've added some gold shimmer to the background and also to the red flowers.

Here's the inspiration photo

There are so many different cards that the Design Team have created this week so don't forget to head over to the blog and check them out.

Can't wait to see how you interpret this image!!!!
