JAI #330 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
well another jam packed week is behind me (are there any other ones?) The kids wrapped up Term 3 today and school holidays begin. That has a certain appeal (like not making lunch boxes up at 6:30 am) but it also means routine and my usual stamping windows go - well out the window. Before all the chaos hits I have put in some time on DT projects and today at Just Add Ink we want you to Just Add a Sketch (from me this week!) Here it is.

I had a completely different intention originally for this sketch until I realised that, with just a little adjustment, it was perfect to make a spinner card for my Dad. Here it is.

As you can see I brought the large horizontal banner to the front of the sketch to act as the track for my spinner. Despite the move you can still see how the elements of the sketch come through the design. I kept the rest of it pretty simple - no frills and bells for masculine cards - instead I opted for visual texture with the embossed background and some strategically placed highlights of stitching.

The JAI design team have come up with some awesome designs for the sketch, go check them out and then join in the fun!
