Just Add Ink – Happy #300!!!

Congratulations to the Just Add Ink team who are celebrating 300 challenges and 6 years of awesome fun.  Well done!  With so many challenges on offer and crafters always looking for the next best thing, it’s lovely to see them keep going.  As you know, JAI is my fave weekly challenge.

This week for the big 3-0-0, the inspiration is a sketch (which no matter what I tried wouldn’t put itself into my blog post the right way around!)…

And what an awesome sketch for a special challenge!  The design team creations are very inspiring – you can see them here.

This is my challenge card…

Just Add Ink #300 - Sketch Challenge. Cups & Kettle framelits, silver doily, Happy Happenings stamp set & Going Places DSP. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I seem to be all about blues at the moment. I started with the marbled blue DSP from the Going Place stack, which was going to be my kettle.  But when I cut it out, I found I loved the neutral side more – and the card just took off from there!

I snuck in a retired embossing folder (do you still have this lovely pattern in your stash? I can’t part with it!) for the background, a silver doily for my teapot ‘mat’ and a happy birthday sentiment from my newest stamp set to arrive – Happy Happenings.

I just love awesome sentiment sets and this one from the 2015-16 annual catalogue is so cute – I don’t know what took me so long to buy it!

Happy milestone JAI – looking forward to playing along to many more challenges.  Kelly x
