JAI 155 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
welcome back for a new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a sketch for you.

I had one of those eureka moments when I was thinking about this sketch. I wanted to make an anniversary card for my DH (we clocked up a significant anniversary this year). I also wanted to play with letters and negatives and I suddenly realised I could make the tabs in the sketch work with the whole idea of an arrow (love=heart=arrow!!!). This is how it all turned out.

It was just shear luck that the placement of the U on the BigZ die was in just the right place that I could cut it out as a negative at the bottom of my DSP panel - sometimes you do get lucky :). I let the letters do the talking on this one just adding lots of subtle detail (impressing/embossing texture onto much of the layers).

Do go check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous inspiration for this great sketch!!
