just add ink #248 just add colour


am loving these colours!

it was wet and wild here yesterday so i got the chance to blob out in the craft room and get my mojo on
i had been to the library and gotten some crafty books out for some inspiration and had been meaning to make some of the stuff inside them
this challenge was perfect for one of them
 here is the plain outside of the card
 inside though it is a variety of card stock and papers making a paris scene using a pop up idea
i have the eiffel tower, arc de triomph amongst the buildings plus a hot air balloon in the sky
 here are the mechanics of it all using leftover strips of dsp to make them pop out
 the book i got the idea from and instructions below

cheers ears

NOW that's what I call creative Clare! WOW. Now that's some work. I love how you kept the front of the card simple, yet elegant and then blow away your receiver with what lies inside! Thanks for sharing and thanks for playing along to Just Add Ink this week. Louise xo
