well I had a lovely but tiring week off last week. Tell me I'm not the only one to come back from a week off only then to need a week to recover from it - lol! And yes, you guessed it - back to lunch boxes this week. Although I caught a lucky break as my Miss 8 had a special canteen sausage sizzle lunch one day. To deal with school holidays and various family events I worked ahead on the Just Add Ink challenges so for this weeks challenge (we want you to Just Add a sketch) I'm taking you back to Father's Day. Paula's great sketch just popped an idea into my head that I thought would be perfect as a card for my FIL. Here's the sketch.
I'd stashed away but not used my SU! That's the Ticket set but it got a good work out here after the idea of using the tickets as the panel elements popped into my head. I kept all the tones fairly masculine using the Soft Sky (and the tiny red heart to add the colour pops). I used the DSP, stitching and a button threaded with twine to add texture. All the elements draw your eye down to the Sky "dad" - which as it is a Father's Day card is a good thing ;) The inside was finished off simply to match. By all accounts it was well received by my FIL :)
Do check out the rest of the JAI DT for some fabulous inspiration for this great sketch. Thanks for visiting,
