Just Add Ink #309 - Inspiration picture

Happy Friday!

We're just about to start our second long weekend in a row - woohoo!
Last weekend we went camping and had a blast but this weekend we'll be doing a whole lot of relaxing :)   What are your plans for the weekend?

Anywho back to the reason we are here - it's Just Add Ink challenge time.
This week we have a lovely inspiration photo which is at the bottom of my post.

I took things quite literally and created the same grey background, included some chevrons and used the same colours.

I added a layer of vellum which I white embossed onto.  I think this helped make my background of splatters and chevrons quite crisp!

There are quite a few elements in this photo that you could use for inspiration so please link up your card here so I (and the other design team members) can check it out :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend no matter what you get up too!!

Just Add Ink #307 - Colour combo

Hello and happy Friday to you all!

We've got a very cool colour combo challenge for you at Just Add Ink this week.
The colours are Delightful Djon, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate and Whisper White!

Well I think summer is over and Autumn is setting in.... it's the coolest day we've had here in Brisbane in a long time! I've finally got a scarf on!

It's been a fairly non eventful week this week so it's been a great time to get my craft on :)

Normally I would have placed my flowers over to the left hand side of this oval however I thought it might make a nice change to put them right in the centre.

There is actually a surprising amount of bling on this card, it's all just very subtle.
I've used wink of stella on the main flower, a splatter of white frost ink in the background and then a few little sequins thrown in! 

Here's the colour combo - 

I hope you find time this week to play along and if you need some inspiration please don't forget to have a look at all the beautiful cards the design team have created on the blog here.
