Just Add Ink #414 Follow Your Dreams

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Hope you have had a great week. It's definitely winter in my neck of the woods, with temperatures dropping to single digits. Brrrrrr!!! As much as I am a Summery kind of gal, I do appreciate winter and rainy days as they are perfect for crafting lol.

Speaking of crafting,  I have finally made it back into my crafty space after a small hiatus, and just in time for this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add a Window/Frame. Yipee, as I had the perfect bundle in mind for this challenge - the new Follow Your Dreams bundle, which includes the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and Chase Your Dreams Framelits.

I decided to make a box frame and add it to front of a normal tent fold card. The Sahara Sand Box Frame has been lined with a brick wall embossed background that has also had a Blushing Bride Water Colour Wash applied once the embossing paste was dry.

I started with a Sahara Sand card base, to which I added a piece of the Tropical Escape DSP in Blushing Bride. Some White Bakers Twine was wrapped around the frame and the 'dream' die cut in Gold Foil card (made using the Chase Your Dream Framelits) was adhered over the Bakers Twine.

I have used the large circular and smaller dream catcher Thinlits from the new Follow Your Dreams Bundle. Die cut from Gold Foil card and layered on top of each other with Tombow. The floral bouquet image was stamped with Black Ink and coloured using Stampin' Blends.
