thank you to everyone who left comments last week on my Just Add Ink blog hop post. It was a real pleasure to hear from you! Well in between entertaining the kids while they are on their summer school holidays I managed to squeeze in making a card for the new Just Add Ink challenge this week. This week we want you to Just Add a Sketch from Tina.
I broke out my favourite Sale-a-bration set - Flowering Fields.
Working with the sketch I decided to make little cameos using some of the flowers. This set really appeals to me as the flowers are very familiar as they are illustrations of native Australian flowers. The sketch was scarily CAS for me so I added a mat of DSP, toning it down with an overlay of vellum and since I was sewing it on I couldn't help but add some sequins underneath (yes again - it's a problem ;) It's very difficult to see but I also clear embossed the white mat using the Happy Patterns Decorative Mask so there is a lovely shine and gleam that adds an extra dimension to the card. Having dealt with my 'white space' issues I was pretty happy with how this turned out.
Do check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous and inventive sketch inspiration.
