JAI #651 - Just Add Inspiration

Welcome to another Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a gorgeous inspiration picture to work from.

Inspiration for my mixed media easel card came from the colours, tea theme and pink hearts. 

The tea bags are real; I cut them at the fold, emptied out the tea as best I could, then glued them back together before adding a touch of colour and replacing the original tags (they were red and just didn't go, lol!). The background is smooshed oxide inks and a tiny hint of stamped hearts, with die-cut hearts on the sentiment strip. 

Materials used:

  • stamps - Coffee & Friends (Echo Park), Country Bouquet (Stampin' Up)
  • card - watercolour, basic white, pecan pie
  • distress/oxide inks - milled lavender, spun sugar, victorian velvet, tea dye
  • other - Papercut Cafe dies (Tim Holtz), Dimensionals, sponge daubers, water spritzer, heat tool, Big Shot, sponge applicators, mini MISTI, tea bags, pecan pie ink (SU), heart and tea bag label dies (stash)

Do check out the beautiful projects my fellow team mates have made by following this link to the JAI blog. And if you're inspired to create, we'd love to see your work in our gallery.

Thanks for stopping by.
