JAI #241: Just Add A Sketch!


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,



  1. WOW! this really is a beautiful creation! Love your coloring! Consider it CASED!

  2. I can totally understand your hesitation Tina but I'm glad you did cut the panel up. I love the effect of the newsprint peeping through all the gaps! xxx

  3. Absolutely stunning Tina! Your colouring is fabulous and l don't blame you for hesitating when cutting, l'd have been procrastinating over that one..:0) xxx

  4. Tina this is absolutely gorgeous! You have rocked the sketch as well as your blendabilities!

  5. Wow Tina this is a stunning card. Your colouring is fabulous and your die cut/ribbon panel are THE perfect substitute - love it.x

  6. This is absolutely stunning Tina! I just love the way you have coloured your flowers, I don't think I would have wanted to cut it up either! Eeeek! But the effect was worth it looks fantastic.

  7. Oh Tina, this is exquisite! The Wisteria is so rich, I must try this sometime soon. Love that newsprint in behind too.
