Just Add Ink # 35 Challenge

Just Add Ink Challenge No 35
Well I got some time today to have another go at a challenge that the Just Add Ink design team have come up with. I did think about this one for a while as I do find these themes a wee bit hard. We had to come up with a card with the theme Sympathy. So here is what I came up with.
I have used some new colours with River Rock as the base of the card and Pear Pizzazz for the layers. This is a different design card as I have used a piece of acetate as a layer on the front of the card, stamped my Tree Image on Pear pizzazz and stuck it on the inside of the card behind the acetate. The sentiment has been stamped with stazon ink on the front of the acetate. I added some borders with the scallop punch for above and below the acetate and added a Butterfly to the top left hand side and with the new Scallop trim Punch I punched a corner from the top of the card but the front part only, popped abit of pear pizzazz behind it and there you have it.

Here is another view of the card so you can see the inside.

Thanks for Looking
Happy Stampin

Just Add Ink # 33 Challenge

Well the ladies from Just Add Ink have come up with another colour combination for this weeks challenge. I really do like these colours together, So a big thank you Ladies for the inspiration.

Just Add Ink # 33 Challenge

Well we have another great Sketch Challenge from the Design Team over at Just Add Ink. We have to come up with a card using the above sketch. Here is my card I come up with.

I have used Regal Rose as the base for the card and then with Old Olive, Pink Pirouette made a layer for my bird. The bird is actually on a layer that I have made from Regal Rose Ribbon. The bird is from the Always Stamp Set and the twig from the 2 Step Bird Punch (a very handy punch indeed).
I have also double layered the ribbons, starting with Pink Pirouette and then Regal Rose and the bow is with Old Olive. The top of my card is scored with the scor-pal for an added effect. Of course I had to add a clear rhinestone for the birdie's eye.

Don't forget to pop on over to the Just Add Ink website to see some more great sketch challengers.
