Just Add Ink Challenge 39


I've just popped in quickly to upload my challenge card for Just Add Ink.  This week the challenge is to Just Add Blue.  It's to highlight Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month.

Over a million people in Australia live with depression. Over two million have an anxiety disorder. With the right treatment, most people recover. 

It's easy to help raise awareness. Sometimes the simplest acts have the greatest impact - just talking openly about anxiety and depression helps reduce the stigma. 

beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month provides an opportunity for workplaces, community groups and individuals to take part in activities to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, and help reduce the associated stigma.

I decided to go with Night of Navy as my blue, and to make it a Christmas card.  I love Navy and White for Christmas Cards,with a really simple design, they just look so classy.  I added some Shimmer Paint and Basic Rhinestones for Christmas **bling**.  This time I applied the Shimmer Paint straight onto the Baroque Motifs swirl stamp with a sponge dauber instead of using ink.  I love how it turned out.  The photos don't do it justice, even though I did some close ups so you could see how shimmery it is.  I hope you like it too.

Stamps:  Contempo Christmas, Baroque Motifs
Paper:  Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink:  Night of Navy
Accessories:  Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Basic Rhinestones, Corner Rounder Punch
Non SU:  Silver Cord


Wow that is stunning

Stunning - using my fav stamp-set Baroque Motifs, with my new Chrissy stamp-set AND my all new fav accessory Shimmer Paint...feeling a case coming on. Congratulations on being Top Pick for this week and for the wonderful inspiration!

Wow, Sue - I love the elegant simplicity of your card. It's beautiful (and you've convinced me I 'need' the shimmer paint!). This one will be CASEd for sure! Congrats on your Top5 pick at JAI.
