Just Add ink#325 the places You'll go with GDP#049 colours

Well once I got started I had to complete more than one card!

this stamp set is not new, but new to my collection. I love the delicate wreath and stamped it onto some shimmery white which had a yellow watercolour wash. I did use the colour challenge from Global Design Project #049 but my photos don't really do the colours justice.

I love the marbled watercolour paper that was part of the Sale-a-bration promo earlier this year, and while it is difficult for me to cut into it I took the plunge !!  The daffodil strip across the centre is some cotton paper scrunched up, and since I didn't have any pear pizazz twine I took a single strand from the White jute ribbon and ran it over the pear stamp pad. You have to let it dry befor trying to work with it but it doesn't take long.  The perfect white accents have had their white backing paper removed so they take on the colour of the background panel. My looping pear thread needed some anchors to hold it in place as glue dots were just too big- so bling seemed essential - doesn't it always?

thanks for looking today,

Envelope Dies perfect for an Acetate Tent card and some new DSP

After creating yesterday's cards I was on a roll and created this one using the beautiful Gilded Autumn DSP and the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  I really love the sentiments in this set.  It is such a simple design and easy to create. You can find all the directions on yesterday's post for Just Add Ink (JAI#518)  I watercoloured the white leaf after I had adhered the gold veins just to soften it, and I added a strip of mint DSP to the front of one of the tent stands as the white was a bit stark. That's the cool thing about this design, you can change it up plenty of ways. I'm sure we can all send these type of cards at the moment. I hope you are safe and well, and staying connected, wherever you are. I hope you have a creative week and remember,  "don't just post online,  post something pretty!" cheers, Liz Product List Ornamental Envelopes Bundle [ 155168 ] $83.50 Envelopes  Dies [ 153531 ] $63.00 Shimmery White A4 Car
