JAI#100...Just Add Crowns - Special JAI Blog Hop

Good Friday morning ~

Wow can you believe we're up to Challenge 100 over at Just Add Ink? This week we're adding Crowns. A very regal occasion indeed!


You will have hopped here from Nikki's blog. There are 11 stops on our Blog Hop, and it's set up in a loop so it doesn't matter where you start. All you need to do to follow along is click the JAI Blog Hop button at the end of each post and you'll be taken to the next stop! If you get stuck just head over to the JAI blog to find all the links.

There is a prize for commenting on all the Design Team member posts this week, and a prize for the winner of our Just Add Crowns Challenge.

This week I've made a crown shaped card (I saw this in a magazine ages ago). The size is the usual A5 so it will fit into a C6 envelope for posting. You'll notice my card is quite a bit different than my usual style. I rather enjoyed sponging ink all over, spraying it with shimmer mist and layering up some ribbons, seam binding and lace.


If you would like any further details about this card just shoot me an email. Thanks for stopping by today. Click on the badge below to check out Paula's awesome interactive project this week.


Big hugs

  2. Fantastic idea Patrice. I love the swirlys on this - would like to see it IRL too cause I think the Shimmer Paint would look fantastic. It's great stuff. Chantell
