JAI #256 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
well finally Autumn is starting to set in - I can't tell you how much I love that fresh chill in the air and the increasing depth of colour in the leaves. Sometimes the colours are just so gorgeous I have to stop and just soak it all in!  Hopefully you will enjoy the challenge we have for you this week at Just Add Ink just as much as I'm enjoying my Autumn weather - this week we want you to Just Add a Sketch, designed by Tina. Here's the sketch.

 I did struggle with the Autumn light to get a decent photograph though!

Soft, pretty and layers upon layers is where I ended up and where I started from, well I was intrigued and inspired by a post by Melissa Phillips here about adding wings to tags. I'm definitely in a vellum phase at the moment so don't be surprised if you see some more :)

Hope you can join us this week. Oh and don't forget to visit the rest of the DT to see their gorgeous creations!
