Just Add Ink #5

Afternoon everybody,

Its been very very busy for me this week. We have taken the decision to build a house! So a lot of time is done researching and it is exhausting. We also had unexpected guests home.I have not gone near my desk for past 3 days.I finally got a chance to make something today.There has been a lot of chatting about this blog called Just Add Ink. So I hopped on to see what all this hype is all about and glad I did because the blog is just fabulous. They have wonderful tips, challenges and some tutorials as well. All projects on the blog are done using Stampin' Up! products but in challenges you can use whatever products you want to. Thats nice of them! This week they have "Just Add Dimension" challenge.
Stamp it, colour it, dye it, punch it, stick it on, stand it up - it's up to you!
Your creation can be a card, scrapbooking LO or a 3D project.
The most important thing is to
THINK OUTSIDE THE SQUARE
There are some beautiful inspirations on the blog by the design team.
 
Here is my take on the challenge.
 
 

 
 
I have used Kraft,Basic Black cardstock from SU, Stamps from PTI, accessories- ribbon, circle punch, inks, brads and white gel pen from SU. Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, border punch from Fiskars and pencils pinched from my daughter Aditi.
 
These would be perfect for school going kids or add a parker pen and say thanks to the teacher!
Hope you like it. Thanks for the challenge and I think its awesome.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs

Great project, Gayatri! You are always 'thinking outside the square' with your creations, so this challenge was perfect for you!

That is such a cool idea, Gayatri! My eldest boy has just started school, and that would be a neat little gift for him.
Thank you for the ideas! Bron

Hi Gayatri. I love the colour combo and the 'pencil' holders which could be used for lots of other bits 'n' bobs. Fantastic. Thanks for joining in at Just Add Ink.
