JAI #406: Just Add A Sketch

Hi!

Hooray for Friday, although boo that it's nearly the end of school holidays. The kids go back to school on Monday and I will miss our lazy days home together.


But Friday means it's a new Just Add Ink challenge, and this week it's a sketch designed by me!

I thought this was a nice easy one, only slightly tricky with the diagonal panel. What do you think?

I pulled out my Myths & Magic SDSP for another play before it retires.

I've made a few mermaid cards, so this time I went for the knights and dragons. They were a little time consuming to fussy cut, but it's a job I don't mind too much. I even fussy cut a tiny fleur-de-lis to go on his shield!

My main tip is to position the characters so that they are looking at each other as much as possible. Don't yo just love the smirk on the dragon's face as he eyes off the knight? Too funny! It's hard to see in the photos, but the dragon body, and knight's plume and chest are all glittery. It really adds a fun element to the card.

There were also little castles on the same sheet of DSP, so I fussy cut one to go on the inside.

That's it for me for this sketch. Pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog to see what the Design Team have done with the sketch. I hope you have as much fn with it as I did. Don't forget to link up your card.

Bye for now,

Tina
