Just Add Ink #202 - Just Add Stripes

Hello hello ~

I'm popping in this morning to share my latest creation for the Just Add Ink challenge.  This week Paula set us the task of adding stripes.

My stripes are embossed!  I played with my new Simple Stems stamp set using the colour combo Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla.  You'll notice my ever faithful Champagne Shimmer Mist sparkling on the flowers - goodness knows how I'm going to survive when my little bottle runs out because this has long been a retired item!

Pop over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration.  Hope you're enticed to play along with us this week!

I'm off on a lunch cruise this Sunday to help celebrate a special 70th birthday.  Hope the weather plays nice - although it's been such a long time since we've seen rain I don't think anyone would complain if it started bucketing down.  This poor old (bush) city is very brown and burnt and soooo dry.  I really feel for the wildlife.  Our summer months certainly take a toll on the kangaroos, koalas and other beautiful animals we're lucky to have in Australia.

Hope you have a nice weekend lined up too!  Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Lovely card, Patrice. I do like the shimmer in your flowers! Hope you get that rain you need...but not during your celebration!

  2. What a great idea to use embossed stripes P - they make a lovely elegant subtle background for those shimmery flowers of yours. Enjoy that cruise! xxx

  3. This is absolutely beautiful, P. Love your colour choices, those gorgeous stamps, the stripey white background and, of course, the shimmer.

  4. Gorgeous card, Patrice!!! Love the shimmer and all the extra details of cutting out the flower.

  5. Hope you are enjoying that cruise today! I really like the colour combo you've used for this card!

  6. A lovely soft, feminine card Patrice. The embossed stripes are a subtle way to add a nice background to the lovely shimmered flowers!
