Just Add Ink #267 - Just Add Typography
This week Di has given us the new challenge over at Just Add Ink, to add Typography. I have to admit I googled this one.
As you can see I've used a ton of different stamp sets on my card. It was a total snap to put together, despite it looking like it took forever. Thank you MISTI. I just lined them all up and stamped once.
My base card is the very cool Irresistibly Yours Specialty designer paper we received during SAB earlier this year. It's white paper with a glossy white pattern that you can colour using a variety of techniques - which then reveals the pattern. I used a sponge dauber and black ink to bring up the bold stripes. I've used a Smoky Slate mat and my accent colour is the lovely new Watermelon Wonder In Colour. Pretty cool for a guy, don't you think?
Head over to JAI and check out the great variety of design team inspiration cards this week - that should give you an idea of where to start if you'd like to join the challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing many more Typography ideas from you all.
Well after fifteen months of planning and training, in just six days GK will be on his way to Borneo with World Challenge Organisation. Everything is packed. He's had all his needles and adventure awaits. He'll be doing a week of jungle trekking and sleeping rough in hammocks. He's also going to work on a community project in a small village for a week - digging trenches for water pipes. Nothing like good old fashioned hard work to put things in perspective. He'll have a week of R & R also, and visit some beaches and see the orangutangs and clouded leopards. I'm sure he's going to come home a different kid. I'm excited and nervous for him. Can't wait to hear all about it when he returns. Let's hope he's better with a camera than I am lol.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have an awesome weekend!
