Hello and happy Friday to you! This week has seen Melbourne almost live up to it's name of Four Seasons in one day....we started the week with cool and crisp mornings and then we had a 39 degree day on Tuesday which saw some drama - especially in our house as our air con was playing up...but all good now and we have returned to a much more reasonable 26 degrees or so in time for the end of Summer.
And it is time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week is a very special one as it is our 300th challenge - that is 6 years of challenges - so amazing!! I remember when I first started stamping that JAI was a place where I went for inspiration but it was a few years before I was brave enough to enter any challenges...and now I have had the privilege of being welcomed to the team just over a year ago. I still have to pinch myself sometimes :-)
So to celebrate, we are offering prizes to the winner and honourable mentions for this week's challenge so make sure you pop on over to check out the details and the wonderful cards the fabulous design team have made to inspire you too!
So here it is - the lovely Kim has designed this fabulous and clean sketch for us all to use this week:
Here is my card:
The stretch of Midnight Muse ribbon is supported by strips of white card placed underneath it to bring it up to the height of the circle window and is attached using some glue dots. Otherwise, the ribbon tends to sag as of the circle is on dimensionals :-) I say "circle" but the bottom of it has been trimmed to reflect the sketch.
For the underwater scene, I used the lovely Perfectly Artistic DSP and embossed the seaweed image with some white embossing powder both on the background piece and within the circle itself. The fish are coloured with my newly expanded Copics collection before being coated with a little Wink of Stella for shine and sparkle.
