Just Add Ink #102........

Good morning blogger friends, it's Just Add Ink time and this week we have a different challenge for you, we want you to CASE fellow "Design Team" member Kathy Tanner, go check out Kathy's beautiful creations, choose one you like and case it or put your own spin on it......
Here's my choice, l followed Kathy's layout but swapped out the stamps and colours to make it a little different.
I must confess to a boo boo, but one l didn't notice until after posting it to our team blog, not sure how l missed it as it is now so glaringly obvious, but these things happen as we all know, it's the small line of embossing just above the background emboss resist panel just incase you missed, something that is not so easy to see until you add the inks, but there you have it "Confession" made...:0)

This is Kathy's gorgeous card that l finally chose, there are so many beautiful cards on her blog it was hard to narrow it down to just one.
The rest of the Design Team have done a lovely job of casing Kathy so pop on over for more inspiration and play along with this challenge, the best part is all the hard work is already done!

It is again with sadness that we say goodbye to another fellow DT member Paula Dobson, this week is her last DT submission for JAI as life's demands have taken her in other directions for now, we will miss your beautiful DT creations Paula and l for one will be avidly blog stalking you...:0)

"Thanks for popping by & l hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend"

  1. I would certainly find it difficult to choose just one of Kathy's cards to CASE. This is a gorgeous take on her beautiful butterfly card. I love the vibrant colours in the background embossing.

  2. Wow, Nikki! This is absolutely stunning! Love your colour combo and the design you were inspired by - your card is gorgeous.

  3. Wow, Nikki, this is a gorgeous take on Kathy's card. Love how you changed the colours, but stayed true to the design. As for the 'boo boo', I think it's more of an 'enhancement'. LOL.

  4. This is GORGEOUS! I love this stamp set and I don't know why I haven't played with it more, coloring it like this. Just beautiful!

  5. Well I'd have to be honest and say that I think your case is better than the original Nikki.
    I love the colours you've used.
    Thanks for your kind words about my work, I feel very honoured :)

  6. Truly stunning Nikki! Love your colour transition and how you framed the the butterflies and added just that little touch of bling :)

  7. Hi Nikki. I've been so far behind in my blog browsing so I've have treat after treat this morning catching up on your creations. This is such an elegant card! The extra embossed line actually looks quite at home there and I love how you sponged part and not all of that background. I'll be CASEing this for sure. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. A gorgeous take on Kathy original beauty. Love the colours you have used on the background panel Nikki, it looks like a ray of sunshine & the coloured butterflies look fabulous. :)
