JAI #370:Just Add A Sketch

Hi!

Oops! I'm a bit late this week - Friday snuck up on me!


This week Narelle has designed a sketch for us to use in our card making at Just Add Ink. I quite liked this one, and found it difficult to narrow down and settle on one idea.

In the end I decided to have a bit of a play with the returned Glossy cardstock.

I started by using my Aqua Painter to colour the large circle in Lemon Lime Twist. After it dried, I coloured the smaller Wisteria Wonder circles. When dry, I stamped over the top of each of the circles with some of the swirly stamps from Swirly Bird. They looked a little too stark against the watercolour background, so I ended up going over them again with a little water to soften the look.

For the leaves, I dabbed a little bit of water where I was going to stamp each one, and then stamped over the top. You can see how the water and ink pooled differently on each one, giving a lovely, individual look to each leaf.

I used the smaller flowers and leaves again on the inside. I couldn't get the same look, as I was using Whisper White cardstock, but I still like the way they turned out.

You can play along this week over at the Just Add Ink blog. You can also see the incredible cards the rest of the Design Team have created.

Bye for now,

Tina
