Just Add Ink #527 Sketch


Hello there,
I am almost coming to the end of the family birthday season. It's kind of funny how families often have birthdays in clumps and mine is no exception. I used the new Just Add Ink challenge, this week it's time to Just Add a Sketch (my design), to make a birthday card for my niece. Pink and girly are still very much the order of the day. To make it extra special I made it a spinner card. Here's the sketch.

And this is how it turned out.

The stamp only showed the front view of the the girl, so I had to improvise to create a back view for my spinner to work. To do so I jury-rigged a light box, and place the stamped image face down with another piece of card stock taped into place on top. Then using an alcohol friendly fine marker, traced the image, and filled in the details necessary (e.g. hair instead of a face) to get a backview. Probably the trickiest bit was trimming the front and back images out simultaneously.

The spinner element was inserted in an oval cut into the front of the card. To obscure the message that would be inside I added a vellum insert that would fold over. The spinning princess was surrounded by garlands of pink glittery (alcohol ink) coloured flowers and a little sprinkle of sequins. Was it a bit fiddly - yes but I aways try and go that extra bit for the kids in the family. Birthday are such a big deal for them :)
