JAI #407: Just Add O

Hi!

Did you survive the first week back at school? I have three tired and grump children after a big first week. Lucky it's nearly the weekend so they can sleep in and relax a little.


Friday also means the new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week it's one of my alphabet challenges. We are challenging you to Just Add O to your card.


What do we mean by Just Add O? It means you can use anything that starts with O on your card - it could be the name of a stamp set, a technique, a theme or an embellishment, or any combination of the above!

I included 4 O's on my card - I used the outgoing In Colours to create an ocean scene that you can see through an oval opening. How's that for clever? LOL

I started by die cutting the oval opening and then lightly marking the edges on the card base. I then masked, sponged and stamped the ocean using Dapper Denim and the water stamp from Fabulous Flamingo. I then flipped the mask over to sponge Soft Sky over the top of the scene. The boat from Swirly Bird was then stamped using Memento, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.

The boat was so cute that I couldn't resist stamping it again on the inside, however I mixed up the colours from the front.

The Design Team found the O challenge a little tricky, but lucky for you, you get to see all our cards to help spark your imagination. You can see them over at the Just Add Ink blog, where you can also link up your card. Have fun with the letter O!

Bye for now,

Tina

  2. Super fabulous and super fun Tina! A fantastic use of the outgoing In Colours!! The pop of colour on the front framed with the white oval makes for a beautiful clean card! Rochelle xo

  3. Got to love that little boat & how clever to use the Flamingo set to create sea texture(my set is still uninked). Saving this one for later. Hugs, D
