Daisy Birthday for JAI #454

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! It's been a week full of Public Holidays with Easter last weekend and the solemn and always poignant ANZAC Day ceremonies yesterday. One day before the weekend comes around again and it is slowly but surely getting cooler.

So if you are enjoying another long weekend then our new challenge at Just Add Ink is just the thing to keep you busy crafting! Lou has suggested this fab and fresh colour combo and our talented design team have created a gorgeous array of projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a peek and join us!

Pineapple Punch is aptly named and Blueberry Bushel has quickly become a favourite why this card took a while to come together I don't really know. The water coloured background is first sprayed with Distress Resist Spray and allowed to dry before going over it with an Aqua Painter. Once the first layer of colour was dry, I repeated the process. The spray dries to leave a shine and texture and traps colour (or white) underneath which is quite special in real life.

It's a bit hard to see and I will try and get a better photo but you may be able to see the speckles and droplets it created? The daisy is stamped and punched and the layers added with dimensionals. 

And there is bling in spades - whilst the only other colours allowed for JAI colour challenges are black and white, metallics are also ok so there is silver glimmer paper, sequin trim and of course the lovely faceted gems 😊

Card stock: Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Inks: Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana, Versamark

  1. Your background is amazing! It looks so textured. The yellow daisy is a fun addition to your gorgeous card.

  2. Ooh, that card sure is pretty! I have that spray - you're making me want to pull it out again and make something with it. Your background is beautiful and I love the mottled effect the spray created. LOVE your resulting card!
    Thanks for the lovely message you left on my blog today as well :)
