Just Add Ink #113....

Morning all, l hope you all enjoyed your Easter break with loved ones and the Easter bunny was kind..:0)
This weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink is a gorgeous inspiration pic from Jodene.

The DT have created some very inspiring cards for you, using so many different elements from this pic, my inspiration was the colours and the striped carpet, l combined those with some of the awesome techniques learnt during Tim Holtz "Creative Chemistry" on-line class l took recently....So much fun and l learnt so much and came away with an amazing increase in my product knowledge.
I am hoping to substitute TH products with SU wherever possible, as l already have those. 
For this card l used Stampin-Up re-inkers and whisper white craft ink to create the background, l'm pretty happy with how it turned out and enjoyed getting inky and watching it come together.

Pop over to JAI and see how the girls interpreted this weeks challenge and we would love to see how it inspires you.

  2. Wow! Nikki, this is amazing! I love it! I can't wait to see more Tim Holz-inspired work. :-)

    I pinned a comparison of Distress Ink vs Stampin'Up! ink a while back and it is amazing how flexible the SU! inks can be.
