Just Add Ink #485...Just Add "One Layer"

Happy Friday all,
first up unfortunately we had issues with a provider upgrade to our Linky service that impacted on the chance for you all to participate in last week's challenge. Consequently, we made the decision to make the challenge a non-voting one which means we have no winner or honourable mentions. However, we do want to shout out to Dawn, Bonnie in Kerse, Nunzia Aggia Sb Cat Craig Sherri and Steffi H for persisting in linking up your lovely entries. Thank you from the Just Add Ink team and we encourage you all to go visit their blogs.

Now on to this week and a new challenge. This week Jan has challenged us to Just Add a One Layer Card. That means exactly what it says one layer, so your card base is your card front with no additional popped up elements. You can however, add embellishments like sequins, rhinestone and enamel dots etc. We look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations!



Here is what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration...

Just Add Ink #484..."Colour"


*New Update*
Thankfully our Linky issues have been resolved, unfortunately due to a provider upgrade our Linky  access was limited for this challenge, so we have decided we will leave the challenge open until 8pm tomorrow to give those that contacted us and those of you that would still like to participate the opportunity to do so.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused those that had created projects.

Well here we go with a new Just Add Ink Challenge.

This week, Rachael has suggested we work with this very pretty Colour Combo, which is a mix of newer colours and a couple of colours that we have had for a little while.
We are really looking forward to seeing what you do with these colours.
