Just Add Ink #3


A week or so ago I was lucky enough to win some blog candy over at Sue's Stampin' Designs. Sue was giving away a brand new, unmounted set of last year's Sale A Bration stamps. I didn't 'discover' Stampin' Up until after last year's SAB, so I was thrilled to have won. I got them in the mail yesterday, so last night I got my first chance to have a play with them. I thought I'd use two of the sets to have a go at the latest challenge at Just Add Ink, which happened to be a sketch challenge.

Here is my card:

I'm loving the Old Olive panel, but I'm not sure about the Linen background. I think I should have gone tone on tone for it. Next time! I don't have many inkpads, so instead of sponging around the panels I used the side edge of my marker and ran it around the side of the card stock. It is quite obvious on the round Whisper White panel, but a lot more subtle on the Old Olive Panel. I thought it would give a little definition to the edges.

Card Stock: Whisper White, Old Olive
Stamps: Congrats, Botanical Blooms, Linen (all retired)
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Versamark
Other: Pink Ribbon from my stash

Catch you later
