JAI #179: Just Add A Sketch


Friday once more, so another Just Add Ink challenge!

This week Mae has designed a sketch for us to use.  Interpret it how you'd like, but the sketch must be the inspiration for your card.

I chose to make a very literal interpretation of the sketch using some of my new goodies from the new Annual Catalogue.

This was my first play with Gorgeous Grunge, Off The Grid and Smoky Slate.  Love them all!

I cut the arrow shape from the Smoky Slate layer using a punchie for a template and then popped it up on Dimensionals to give it a better effect.

Some complimentary stamping on the inside.  The clock was originally meant for the front, but I felt it needed more than just the red hands.  I restamped one for the front that had the red body, but didn't want to waste the grey one, so I used it on the inside.

Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Off The Grid, Clockworks, Make A Wish, For My Family (retired)
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Real Red
Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Basic Grey
Other: Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch, Fiskars Arrow Punch

What do you think you'll do with Mae's sketch?

Bye for now,



  1. Tina, this card rocks. Love how you've used Clockworks & grunge together, but the cut out arrow with the panel raised up its really clever. Great male colours. Carolyn x

  2. I love how you've used all your new 'toys', Tina. The stamping on the inside of the card is a great way to finish this awesome 'guy' card.

  3. Love how effective all the layers of stamping are in this Tina! Those pops of red are a great way of catching the eye too! xxx
