Just Add Ink 241

The sketch from Just Add Ink kept me awake half of last night as I tried to work out the best way to tackle it and tried to work out measurements in my head! Even so, I ended up with variations on a theme.

I was lucky enough to get a couple of stamps from the jumble at the Church Fair a couple of weeks ago - a tree and a really useful clump of grass. Neither are named but one is dated 1994 and I wanted to use them in this challenge.

Variation 1:

Variation 2:

So, first thing on today's agenda was getting these cards out of my head and made. I've too-ed and fro-ed about which one to submit to the challenge, but think I'll go with 2.

Card: Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Night of Navy (both) Hero Arts Black; Crumb Cake, Soft Suede (1); Mossy Meadow, Basic Gray (2)
Stamps: Unnamed tree and grass (both); Wetlands, A Dozen Thoughts (1); Wetlands sentiment (2)
Other: Dimensionals (both), Linen twine (1); Decorative label punch, Night of Navy candy dots, Night of Navy ribbon (2)

  4. You've created such beautiful scenes Jan, the subtle differences in designs are both lovely. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink..

  5. So funny, I thought I was the only one that would have card designs pester my brain until I actually created them!! This is spectacular Jan and you must be so happy to have found those stamps. It has to be a winner for sure!

  6. Jan they are both lovely and beautifully atmospheric! I do lots of my designing in my head and totally understand your itch to get it out and onto paper. So nice when it works :) Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
