So this week at Just Add Ink we have a wonderful sketch by Tina for you and the Team have come up with some amazing ideas to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and have a look.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
Here is another look at it with the twine and bow that I somehow missed seeing originally!
For this card I created a Bokeh background using a technique I saw in a video by Dawn Olchefske. Bokeh is a technique often used in photography to blur the image and makes an interesting effect for a card background :-) You can create this effect in many ways - by water colouring or sponging ink on the white card stock to create your coloured background. And when it is dry apply white Craft ink in circles one the top - for this I used the Circle Framelits to cut a stencil with different sizes of circles .out of Window Sheet And once the white ink was dry I used a hexagon punch as well as circle framelits again for the central layered image.
Card stock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Window sheets (For stencil for background)
Inks" Calypso Coral, Crushed curry, Coastal Cabana, Craft White, Momento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Perfect Pennants, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Hexagon Punch, Window Sheet
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop over to Just Add Ink to check out all the wonderful inspiration from the Team and I look forward to seeing what you will create for this challenge too!
Happy stamping until next time,
