Just Add Ink Challenge # 314

Hi everyone, I'm sorry this post is up so late. Max has been home sick with a horrible cough all week and I've been sick since Tuesday night. This is my first time out of bed for 24hrs so thought I better get this done, sorry for the delay!!

This is the delicious inspiration photo we have for you this week at Just Add Ink.. I love all the citrus colours together and wish I could run out now and try a pomegranate. So I decided to run with citrus hues for my design:

This was super easy to do! I grabbed two pieces of scrap card stock and held them in place (as a mask) while I used my mini-blending tool and Distress Inks 'Seedless Preserves', 'Spiced Marmalade' and 'Mustard Seed' to blend in the strips of colour. To add a bit of interest I die-cut a small circle (from Couture Creations), cut a strip off the side of it and popped it up on foam tape. I then die-cut the 'hello' (from Simon Says Stamp) three times from white CS and glued them together and then to the card. And for a bit of a change I used three white enamel dots (from Rosies Studio) instead of sequins. Feel like I was channeling my inner Laura Bassen!!

I'm going to link this to the CASology Challenge # 200 where the girls are celebrating their 200th challenge!!

And will also link to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Mask It'.

You have until next Wednesday June 8th to link your projects to the Just Add Ink challenge and I can't wait to see the Gallery filled with citrus inspired creations!!!

Take care
