Just Add Ink #114..

Morning...This week over at Just Add Ink we have another "Case a DT" challenge for you and this weeks DT member is the very talented "Jodene Tripp", Jodene's unique style is always an inspiration and scrolling through her blog a few weeks ago l found myself with a dilemma, it was narrowing it down to just one card to that was a challenge in itself!
I finally decided on this simple and elegant card, it's so pretty!
I followed Jodene's layout and other elements, but as l didn't have DSP that was suitable, l decided to create my own using a technique shared with me by another talented DT member "Christine Blain"
The baby wipe & re-inker technique was a real "WOW" and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go!
Using the SAB set "Fresh Vintage" and Pool Party-Island Indigo & Early Espresso re-inkers this is what l came up with for a faux DSP, love the effect and can't wait to have a play with some other colour combos.
The DT girls have cased Jodene beautifully and everyone chose very different cards to case, so pop over to JAI  and check them out and hopefully we will see you in the challenge gallery this week.
