Hello in Flowers JAI #283

Hello and welcome to another beautiful Friday! Spring has indeed sprung and today is headed to a lovely and warm 27 degrees with the possibility of a storm later. The garden is blooming despite the heat earlier in the week and the veggies are all growing well too :-)

And we have a fabulous new challenge for you at Just Add Ink. This week Narelle has a wonderful sketch for us to use. Our lovely and talented Team have created a beautiful array of creations to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look.

Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:

Yes, I did replace the horizontal panel with a stamped image but hopefully you can still see the horizontals here! The square panel was inspired by several cards by Angie Leach where she created a floral background using white embossing and sponging the  ink onto the petals and centres. It is such a quick, easy and subtle way of adding colour that has a softness to it. For my panel I kept the colours Angie used but included a variety of images in the larger piece this was eventually  cut from. And of course the rest of the card came together as per the sketch with a few additions of shiny Gold :-)

Card stock: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Inks: Versamark, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo
Stamp: Garden in Bloom, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Framelits, Greetings thinlits, Elegant Dots EF, Triple Banner Punch, Metallic Sequins Assortment, Gold Metallic Thread

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see the wonderful cards our Team have made to inspire you this week and I look forward to seeing what you create with this lovely sketch too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. What a gorgeous card Jan! Love all the pinks and the white embossed flowers sponged with ink are beautiful! Rochelle xo
