Elements of Style

My card this week was inspired both by this weeks sketch challenge & the lovely Miss Teneale. I decided I would send this card to my beautiful Aunty D who is undergoing chemo & as her favourite colour is blue the colour choice was easy. I also love how easy it is to achieve colour success using the colour coach from Stamp'in Up!.

After hours of watching the video from convention of Teneale demonstrating her Bow technique, I think I've got it!

The products used to create this card include: Stamp sets- Elements of Style, French Foliage & Thanks for caring. Cardstock: Marina mist, Very vanilla, Night of navy & Certainly celery. Stain ribbon, the ribbon punch, Versa mark & embossed with clear embossing powder, the beautiful wings embosslit & to add a touch of softness some pearls.

Wedding Card




The Challenge this week at Just Add Ink is Just Add Black And White. It is a colour concept that I love to work with. I was asked to create a wedding card for one of the girls at work and the colours she asked for was , you guessed it! .... Black & White.

I started with the thought of keeping it simple and then just kept building on it. I was really pleased with how the layers blended together. If you look close you might even just see a little bit of Dazzle.




Recipe:
Stamp set: Because I care (level one Hostess set) & Occasional Quotes ( level 3 Hostess set)
Cardstock: Whisper white & Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder & Organza ribbon and some dazzling diamonds.
