Just Add Ink Challenge

Back with another challenge from Just Add Ink, which is also a card for my daughters birthday next week. But then again, she might not make it to her 15th birthday LOL!!! The ATTITUDE and FLOOR ROBE is unbelievable at the moment but I do LOVE her to bits. Apart from the phrase she's going through at the moment, Courtney really is a beautiful young lady and has a lot to offer.

Anyway back to the challenge, be sure to check out the other entries at http://www.justaddink.com/ or even add an entry yourself. I love the colour scheme this week, with kiwi kiss, chocolate chip and barely banana.

I thought I would give the water colour crayons a go. I love the effect and the simplicity of the end result. I coloured the Medallion stamp with chocolate chip, summer sun and old olive crayons. Once I was happy with the colour on the stamp I spritz the stamp lightly with water to make the crayon bleed on the stamp before stamping onto the barely banana card stock.
I used chocolate chip card stock as a matt and a co-ordinating flower brad for the centre of the stamped medallion. Chocolate chip ribbon was used to create the bow before putting together on a kiwi kiss card base.
Well wish Courtney luck over the next week, no I'm only joking and I'll be back with some birthday pics.
So until next time....take care

Love the card Mel!!! I didn't purchase the Medallion stamp when I did my initial order, however have seen some lovely creations using it so it has definately made it onto my (every growing) wish list!!
