JAI 199 - Just add a sketch

Hello there,
did you all enjoy the Just Add Ink blog hop last week? There are so many new techniques and projects I want to try that the girls showcased last week - when I get the time that is! This week our new challenge is to Just Add a sketch. I'm sure you'll have fun with it.
And here is what I made of it.

The idea for this began with the idea of a crepe filter paper flower. All the layers evolved from there as I wanted something blingy to top it off and something beneath to frame it. I had fun playing with all the inky layers to create the background too.  And since I had the sewing machine out I added a some stitching detail as well :)

Thanks for visiting hope you can join us and do check the rest of the DT for some wonderful inspiration for the sketch.
