Just Add Ink #578 Sketch


Hello there,
we are fast heading towards Christmas, you may have already noticed a trend towards Christmas cards her on the blog so don't expect that to change. This week at Just Add Ink, Narelle is asking us to Just Add a Sketch. Here's the sketch.

And here is how my project turned out.

It took me a while to mull over what elements I wanted to use on the right hand side, but once I settled on a tree, I knew I wanted a deer to be curled at the bottom. That peaceful scene led me to the sentiment.

For the tree I pulled out my Pine Wood dies, there is no outline stamps for the tree die, so having die cut a tree I just drew in the 'stamped' lines myself. Then coloured with Blends. The scene led itself to a rustic background so I embossed a woodgrain background then splattered that with Wink of Stella and white gouache. The rectangle panel in the sketch acts as a grounding element for my scene and sentiment. To add a bit of Christmas bling I gold embossed the sentiment (which is very challenging to capture in a photo) and added a gold metallic enamel star from my stash. 

I feel like the simple design and neutral colours suits the peaceful 'nature' feel the project has.
