How are you all on this lovely Friday? Have your children survived the first week back at school? Have you survived your children's first week back at school? It can be a bit of a shock to the system after the lazy days of summer holidays! How about trying the new Just Add Ink challenge to give you back your sanity?
Nikki found these gorgeous images to inspire our card making this week. Wouldn't you just love to sit at that table and enjoy a cup of tea?
I saw this gift box and tutorial by Connie Collins a long time ago and have been meaning to try out the flower ever since. This challenge seemed the perfect time. Isn't it a beautiful flower? It's not difficult to make at all, but it does take a while as you need to wait for it to dry.
This isn't a card you would want to post as the flower sits out quite a way from the card. Sending it in the post would squash that beautiful flower. Luckily I have plenty of friends I can hand deliver this card to.
I was a bit stumped as to what to do on the inside. I don;t have any daisy stamps, so I ended up stamping a leaf from Peaceful Petals and lightly coloured it with a blender pen.
Stamps: Field Flowers, Sassy Salutations, Peaceful Petals
Ink: Wild Wasabi, So Saffron
Cardstock: Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Floral Frames Collection Framelits, Decorative Dots TIEF (SAB), Scribbles Swirls Sizzlit (retired), White Baker's Twine, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Blender Pen
I hope you can join in this week at Just Add Ink, we'd love to see what you create.
Bye for now,
