My Final Post For Just Add Ink - JAI57

When Amanda and I started talking about creating a challenge blog, it was just that - just talk.  When it started becoming a reality I freaked out.  I thought that there was no way that anyone would take the concept seriously.  I mean, Amanda's work is gorgeous, and I was a fan long before we became friends... but me?  I was a stamping nobody.  Much to our delight we were inundated with applications from fabulous stampers across Australia and New Zealand, all excited about the prospect of working with us.  And so Just Add Ink was born.  :-)

And now it's time to pass our 'baby' on.  I have no doubt that the current Just Add Ink Design Team will continue to do a fabulous job with Delys and Bronwyn at the helm.  And so, here is this week's challenge...

If you look at the SU! Colour Coach, you'll see that these colours are recommended for each other - it wasn't just me trying to stump the DT!  Here is what I came up with...

This kind of bow is created by tying a regular bow, then taking a second piece of ribbon, sliding it under the first bow (between the ribbon and card stock) and tying another bow straight over the top.

My inspiration and motivation have been lacking over the past few weeks.  I'm hopeful it will return soon.  Fingers crossed!

Stamp sets - Sweet Summer
Cardstock - Very Vanilla
Inks - River Rock, Daffodil Delight
Accessories - Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Blender Pen
