Just Add Ink #369

Today I’m joining in the fun over at Just Add Ink and being inspired by this gorgeous photo for the #JAI369 challenge.

The best thing about photos like this is that everyone can play along with the challenge and be inspired by different aspects of the photo. For me I was mainly inspired by the colours, then the scenery (trees, water) and lastly how the photo made me feel. I quickly wrote down the colours I felt I would use, the stamp set I would use and the texture my card would have. Quite often I think of a design or idea, forget to write it down and never ever remember it! I’m trying to get better at that.

The photo made me feel a sense of adventure and holidays, so I chose to use the hostess stamp set Dare to Dream for my card today.

The colours I chose were Emerald Envy (trees), Bermuda Bay (water), Crushed Curry (sand), Pool Party (on the balloon) and then for inspiration of the mountains I chose to use some burlap ribbon.

I’m obsessed by the new Ruffled 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and chose to use this as my background to reflect trees blowing in in the wind and the waves of the water. I ran my Wink of Stella pen along the edges of the ripples to make them shimmer just a smidgen. I chose to pick up the yellow again by using the Crushed Curry Glitter Enamel Dots.

You’ve got until 10am each Wednesday to join in the weekly Just Add Ink challenge. A new challenge is posted each Friday so come on over and join the fun!

Happy Crafting,

      Thanks so much Chloe. I was surprised how well the Emerald Envy & Bermuda Bay went together. Definitely a colour combo I’ll be using again!!!
