JAI #241: Just Add A Sketch!

Hi!

Woo Hoo, it's Friday! Yes, it's been one of those weeks! Let me forget it all and jump into the new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week we have a sketch for you.  It's one I designed for the challenge, and I hope it inspires you all.

 
I decided to stamp a whole panel of flowers, colour them with my Blendabilities and then chop it up to create the three vertical panels in the sketch.  I think chopping up the cardstock after colouring them was the hardest part of this card - it wasn't something I wanted to mess up after spending so long colouring!


It all turned out beautifully though! I used Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to colour the flowers and then coordinating ribbon and cardstock.


I couldn't get the horizontal panel working to my satisfaction as it was in the sketch, so I decided to abandon it and try something different.  The ribbon/die cut are a great substitute I think.


I really love these flowers from the I Like You Hostess stamp set - they are great for colouring!

I hope you can find time to play along with my sketch this week at Just Add Ink.  I'd love to see how you interpret it!

Bye for now,

Tina
