Just Add Ink

Todays card is brought to you by the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge. I sat at my desk and was stumped as to what I wanted to do. So I looked up a few challenge sites and settled on doing this one.

But the card I envisaged in my head did not quite turn out that way. But what the heck I thought, it's not too bad, it is half decent. So thought I would enter it into the challenge

Wetlands - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle

I am happy that this stamp set, Wetlands, is carrying over to the new catalogue. It is great for male cards. 

I am  not 100% happy with this card. I think the ovals are too small, I don't like how the masking tape ink effect turned out, and I don't like my water colouring of the duck either. There are other things as well I dislike, but I guess we are our own worse critics sometimes. But I had fun creating it. I loved each step in making it, and you know, sometimes that's all that matters.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.


  1. You've created a fabulous masculine card Narelle! I love the clouds effect your masking gives the sky - so realistic! And your hardwood background sets the scene so beutifully too. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  2. I think your card is really lovely Narelle. I really love the effect you have in the back ground.....looks a bit like crayon? I love how you have put all the colours together. Chantell JAI

  3. Yes, you ARE being too hard on yourself, Narelle! This is a great card. I love that you chose Pacific Point as the main colour; it's really striking. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  4. We are always our worst critics when it comes to our cards. I think this is way better than 'half way decent', it looks perfect to me and I love the scene you created in the middle. And I really like the blue woodgrain paper too. So very glad you decided to join us at Just Add Ink!!!

  5. I actually really like the atmospheric effect you got in the main panel Narelle and your duck looks great too! I'm glad you decided to share it! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  6. You are too hard on yourself - the masking tape background was one of the first things to catch my eye and I thought it looked fantastic. Thanks for sharing it with us at Just Add Ink.
