Just Add Ink #572...Just Add Inspiration

Hello and welcome to a new Just Add Ink challenge,

before we get to the challenge however, we have some news. First a very sad goodbye - as Patrice has decided to step down from the design team. We will all really miss her enthusiasm, her creative clean and simple style and thank her for all the hard work she put in behind the scenes as part of the admin team. 

On the brighter side Just Add Ink is delighted to add two new members to the design team - Ann Alexander and Fiona Bradley. I'll let them introduce themselves to you. 

Ann Alexander

Hello my name is Ann. I am a married mum of three from Sydney, Australia. I love card making and have been pottering along with that for over 15 years with a little bit of mixed media and scrapbooking thrown in along the way. I joined Stampin’ Up!® as a demonstrator initially just so I could enjoy the products at a discount. I soon discovered how much I love the creative expression, connection with other likeminded crafters and joy I get from card making so now I am addicted. I currently work with the Casually Crafting Design Team and Ink & Inspiration Design Team but I am so grateful to now join the lovely ladies at Just Add Ink. I can’t wait to continue to share my love of card making with you.

One day, about eight years ago, I stumbled across the blog of an American papercrafter and my whole creative world was turned on its head. I've been making my own cards since I was a girl but in a very basic way.  Here was someone willing to share what she loved with the world so that others could improve their skills and make beautiful cards like hers. One thing led to another and I discovered Stampin' Up!, became a hobby demo, and I've never left!  To this day that kind crafter's generosity and good will motivate me to do the same.  I love giving back to the crafting world by encouraging others and sharing what I love so that you too can find as much enjoyment in it as I do.  I moved to a country town earlier in the year and I find myself surrounded by that same generosity of spirit from warm and friendly people and feel like I've come home.  Best of all, I now have a whole room just for crafting.  Ain't that living the dream?!

Just Add Ink is also launching a new Instagram page, all out projects will be posted there, so please follow us there too! You find us at justaddinkchallenges

Now onto this week's challenge.

This week Nikki is asking us to Just Add Inspiration and she has given us a really vibrant image. Use the colours, patterns, or objects in the image to inspire the main design of your project.  Here it it.
