Just Add Ink #435....Winners

Hello everyone ~

How wonderful to see all your Wintery creations over the past week. At this time of the year it's not surprising that most of them are Christmas cards. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us here at Just Add Ink, we really do enjoy visiting your blogs to leave a little comment love.

The design team has voted & this week Kez is our 'Top Pick' with her fabulous work of art.


Here is what some of the design team had to say...

It's the card that never ends with two fabulous front scene layers and then a stunning inside as well!

Such a lovely elegant colour combination and fabulous multi layer fold.

I love the elegant design and interesting fold. A very special card for someone to receive. 


Congratulations!

Here is your badge to wear on your blog.

Here's what some of the design team had to say...

A beautiful take on the inspiration picture. The layering of the dies gives that added dimension and the shimmery pearl mist is a beautiful finishing touch.

This soft, peaceful scene and bold and beautiful message is a stunning combination!

I love how the essence of the inspiration picture was captured with the elegant use of muted colours and layering of die cuts.




Here's what some of the design team had to say...

Vibrant inking and artline tree diecuts, make a gorgeous combination and lovely modern twist on Christmas.

I love this fun, fresh take on a Christmas card.

This vibrant, background paired with the delicate snow and tree details is simply gorgeous!

Hi Everyone, Welcome to another Just Add Ink Challenge......this time a photo inspiration challenge.
