Just Add Ink #461 - Add Inspiration

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to this week's Just Add Ink Challenge #461. We have a gorgeous inspiration picture for you to play along with. I love these kind of challenges as everyone interprets the picture so differently and the creations can be so varied.

To play along simply use the inspiration picture as your guide and go bonkers. I am often attracted to colour over anything else and before I even saw this was a street scene, I was immediately drawn to the yellow tones leaves on the trees.

Image may contain: outdoor

My card uses a colour combination of Daffodil Delight, Soft Sea Foam and Smokey Slate. I did originally want to use Silver Foil as well but it didn't fit the look I was after for the final creation.

I haven't made this style or a floating frame card for months and wanted to show how the often overlooked little stamps can do a fabulous job with this technique. You just need press n seal and some patience lol.

The images from Bloom n Grow stamp set and Butterfly Gala were all stamped with Memento ink and coloured using Stampin' Blends. All images excluding the butterfly were fussy cut (I used the punch for the butterfly). I decided I wanted a more free flowing look over a framed look so left the layout as is. Once all the pieces were in place, I stamped the sentiment in the center and finished the card with a few pearl embellishments dotted between the die cuts.

That's all from me today, crafty friends. Be sure to stop by all the Just Add Ink Design Team members blogs for more inspiration using this weeks challenge colours.

We would love for you and your crafty friends to play along, if you have a blog you can add your creation to the Just Add Ink gallery here. Don't have your own blog? No problem! Just send us an email  to with a photo attachment. We will upload it to our challenge entry blog for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Until next time stay awesome and stay crafty.
