Just Add Ink #56

Just Add Ink Challenge Number 56

Well finally managed to sit down and get another challenge in before it closes. This week for the Just Add Ink challenge we have a sketch to follow. Its funny how you have something in mind but its just not what you end up with. A few minor changes here, and a little change there and its completely different to what you set out to do. Not to mention the throw away pieces to start again.

I chose for my card this time the colours Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Rose Red and whisper white. I decided to emboss the white with the Square Lattice Folder which is a favorite of mine at the moment. Rather than stamp an image I decided to use the Blossom Party Die and make my flower. I then sponged over it with Wild Wasabi Ink and edged with Rose Red. I used the Top note die for my So Saffron piece which is stamped with Happy Birthday from the "On Your Birthday set" in rose red ink. I have used So Saffron ribbon which is just twisted and to make the flower I punch out a circle, placed glue all over it and then wrapped the twisted ribbon around until the circle was covered. I also used the 'Build-a-Brads' to make my centre for the flower. Not originally what I set out to do but nevertheless happy with the end results. Hope you like it too.
