Just Add Ink - Inspiration Photo

Off to bed soon. Hopefully all the antibiodics will have taken hold on my son by the morning. He's got a case of bronchitis. Poor bugger.

So, my last post for tonight is to show you a card I have made for the JAI Inspiration Photo challenge.

Once again, I went for a CAS design to try and show the colours that I wanted to use.
I started with my Reason to Smile stamp set. I found after a couple of attempts that this particular stamp works better if I use my basic black marker instead of the pad. Once stamped (using my stamp-a-ma-jig), I embossed the image with clear powder. I then coloured in the flowers using Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum.

I then layered co-ordinating papers and VOILA.


Now, I have just had to come back to say that with my ruddy internet, this just took me an hour and a half to publish this post and get my link to JAI with 4 minutes to spare. Arghhhhhhhhhh.

Thanks for looking xx
