Hi everybody and welcome to a new challenge at Just Add Ink. Our theme for this weeks challenge is:
JUST ADD NUMBERS
You could do this in many ways. Maybe stamping with numbers themselves or stencils, use patterned paper with numbers on them or die-cutting numbers.....the possibilities are endless. And I can't wait to see what your imagination comes up with!
After going through all of my stamps, I realised I didn't have any number stamps or dies. And even my patterned papers weren't helpful at all. So, after going through my stamps again I thought I could use number words instead:
Last year I purchased some 6x6 paper pads and have been trying to incorporate them into my designs. I have a really cool pad from Basic Grey 'B-Side' which has really modern and funky patterns and colours. I decided to use my favourite one to give this card a pop of colour against all the white.
I die-cut the frame twice from white CS and glued them together before adhering to the card front. I then die-cut the umbrella handles 3x each from black CS and glued them together. I also die-cut the umbrella tops twice from white CS and once from the paper before gluing them all together.
I glued the handles down first and then popped the umbrella tops up on foam tape for a bit of dimension and it also brought them up higher than the frame. The sentiment was stamped in black and a few sequins were added for a bit of shine.
The frame is from Pretty Pink Posh, as well as the sequins. The umbrella dies are from Paper Smooches, as well as the stamp from the set 'Daisies and Paisleys'.
You have until next Wednesday 9th March to link your projects to the Just Add Ink challenge. The rest of the Design Team have prepared some creations on the blog to help inspire you if you need any ideas. I can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!!
