JAI #360 Sketch

Hello there,
between work and lots of visitors its been flat out around here so it was soooo exciting when I finally got the time this past week to get out the new In Colors and play!! Got to say I am loving these new colours. The work so well together! What was I working on? Well the new challenge at Just Add Ink this week of course;)  This week we want you to Just Add a Sketch from Narelle.
Here's the sketch.

And here is what I came up with.

I really like the new Lovely Inside and Out set so it was a pleasure to use it. I knew I wanted to use it as a negative diecut from the main panel. So first I prepped my panel by brayering a colour wash over it and adding tone on tone flowers, then I die cut my window out. Accenting that with a flower was just what I need to match with the sketch perfectly! To finish it off I used lot of gold - thread, sequins, embossing!

Don't forget to go check out the rest of the DT's gorgeous creations and then show us what you can do with the sketch!

  1. What a fabulous brayering job! Love your soft tones, and the bright pop of colour in your window. And I so love the 'hugs' half embossed - must try that! Gorgeous card, Kim. xx

  2. Ooh, your background is so lovely, as usual! This bundle just arrived today, so guess what I'll be playing with over the weekend? LOL

  3. So gorgeous, Kim! I love the effect of the half embossed hugs and your super smooth brayered background behind it really makes it pop!! Love your mix of colours too. xx

  4. Gorgeous card! The brayered background is so soft and pretty!

  5. Another fab Kim creation. Love how you've used a negative circle to hold your gorgeous hug. The brayering, floral elements & touches of gold are the perfect combination too.
