JAI #203: Just Add A Sketch

Hi!

Time for another Just Add Ink Challenge. Yay!  This week Paula has designed a fantastic sketch for us to use.


I made this card a few weeks ago when I was playing around with the Good As Gold kit.  I was looking for more ways to use the kit apart from the standard cards.


The spotty panel was one half of a card base from the kit and the gold panel was cut from one of the envelope liners.  The flag is one of the foreign language ones that would otherwise go unused.


I used the three circular panels instead of the fancier shape in the sketch.  I think it's a great substitute, and best of all, it was the right shape to hide the writing on the flag!


I sometimes forget that I can leave a larger border around the edge of my cards.  It's a great look - very effective.

How will the sketch inspire you? See you over at Just Add Ink!

Bye for now,

Tina
