Silhouette Scenes for JAI #469


Happy Friday folks and welcome!! Whilst we are coping with a Wintery blast this weekend, it is noticeable that Spring is on it's way. Slowly but surely, the sun is starting to rise earlier and set a little later. The doggies are going a bit crazy in the parks and the Wattle has started to flower....yes, Spring is in the air 😊

This week at Just Add Ink, Di has given us this rich and vibrant colour combo to use in our projects. The design team have created a beautiful variety of cards to inspire you so I hope that you can take a moment to pop on over and we'd love you to join us!

This colour combo looked perfect to create a background to use the new Silhouette Scenes bundle that has just arrived in my craft room so I pulled out the Sponge Brayers and got to work on Shimmery White card stock. 

The ink was heat set to ensure it was dry before stamping the grass from Enjoy Life and then the girl from Silhouette Scenes was stamped in Versamark and embossed using the new Shimmer Black EP.  It is sooo sparkly in real life with a mixture of pink, green and blue sparkles.

The tree was die cut and trimmed and the bird is also from Enjoy Life. 

And the inside was also decorated in the same way as the outside.

As I had created a couple of backgrounds with these rich colours, I couldn't stop at one card and created another. I needed a sun thanks to the sentiment poem, so a punched a circle' negative space became a stencil to sponge some White Craft Ink into and then a little more Grapefruit on top.

The Shimmer Black embossing powder has already become a favourite - quite cool IRL indeed!

This time all the images are from the Enjoy Life stamp set and I think it might be my favourite card of the two. What about you?

Happy stamping until next time,
