Just Add Ink 529 #JAI529


Just Add Ink Challenge #529

This weeks challenge is a colour challenge

I took these colours along to a crafting retreat weekend to come up with something. I didn't even look at what the design team had made and I came up with this card.

Sadly I lost my mum to terminal lung cancer two weeks ago and I have struggled as we talked on the phone or text every day. I am going to miss her so badly and my heart is broken into a million pieces.
While she was in hospice there was a lovely volunteer lady named Jan who I sobbed to, the day mum was to pass away. I have made her this card to say thankyou for being so kind and compassionate to me. 

I used the silver foil and run the lace die through the Stampin' Emboss machine without the second plate and I placed a rubber mat under the die so it would only leave the impression rather than cut through.
The Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight I have stamped off to get the depth of the colours in the flowers and leaves.

  • Stamps: All Things Fabulous and Dragonfly Garden (coming soon)
  • Ink: - Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight
  • Card: Whisper White, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Silver Foil
  • Tools: Fabulous Florals and Stitched So Sweetly Dies as well as Subtle Embossing Folder with a Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals
