Just Add Ink 309

This week at Just Add Ink, it's inspiration week: make a card using the photo as inspiration.

Turns out that I found quite a lot of inspiration here: colour, shape and even the texture of the blanket appears in the background.

And inside...

I layered up the letters in HAPPY to give them some extra punch. I like the contrast of the soft texture of the backgrounding and the sharp lines of the zigzags.

Update: Very happy that this card received an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink.

Card: Whisper White, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Basic Grey
Stamps: SU Timeless Textures, W&W Big, Bold and Party
Ink: Smoky Slate
Other: Couture Classic Chevrons die, MFT Happy Birthday die, dimensionals

  3. Love it! The softly coloured chevrons contrast beautifully with the grey die cut sentiment. Love the background stamping too, Jan. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  4. Yeah - I love it too! I love how you have stamped underneath your chevrons - such a great touch. It's CAS but also striking. Chantell JAI
