JAI #335: Just Add A Sketch


Here we go with another Just Add Ink challenge! This one will go for two weeks, as a lot of us will be at the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in Brisbane.

This week it's one of mine - I have designed a sketch for your inspiration. I made it very simple, so that it can be interpreted as you will!

What do you think?  I had lots of fun with it, and ended up rotating it, as it suited my purposes better.

I bought these Bugaboo digi stamps a while ago, as we are HUGE Harry Potter fans in my house. I've been looking for an excuse to print and colour them, and this was the time. I used my Copics to colour the images, and had a very relaxing couple of hours doing so!

I wasn't sure what to do for the background. I ended up using one of the new Seasonal Decorative Masks with Emerald Envy ink sponged through it onto the cardstock. I was trying to create the look of potion bubbles, but it was a bit too bold, so I ended up placing a layer of Vellum over the top to soften it.

This is why I wanted the potion bubble look - to tie in with the inside of the card! I haven't stamped a sentiment anywhere on the card as I'm not sure what I will use it for yet. No doubt one of my kids will end up claiming it!

I hope you have fun with this sketch this week. Pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created. Don't forget that you have two weeks to enter!

Bye for now,
