Just Add Ink #385 - Sketch Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are having a great day. I cannot believe its Friday already! Why is it that the closer we get to the silly festive season, the weeks to seem to fly by faster and faster?
Being Friday means its challenge time over at Just Add Ink. Kim has created a fabulous sketch to inspire your creativity this week. Such a gorgoues sketch to work with, I found it extremely easy and fast to decide what goes where.
 I decided to take a break from my run on making Christmas cards and make something different using the stamp set that came with my new Stampin' Blends (alcohol markers) Colour Me Happy. I just adore the lanterns and little bird images in this set.
The card base is a square 6x6 square whisper white, with a strip of Merry Little Christmas DSP down the left hand side. I also fussy cut a few branches from the DSP for embellishments under the sentiment and bird.

The circle element of the sketch has been stamped with the wreath from the Hello Friend set in Old Olive ink. This was then cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. To add a little interest a black circle was tucked behind. The bird image from the Colour Me Happy stamp set has been coloured using the new SU alcohol markers in Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake. The sentiment is from the same stamp set - stamped in Archival Black.

Before attaching the stitched circle to the card base, a piece of DSP and Old Olive card were cut and placed underneath, on top of a delicate doily. To include the last element of the sketch some Black & White Bakers Twine was added.
The Design Team have created some stunning cards with this weeks challenge sketch. I hope you are inspired to play along with us. Join us by adding your card here.

Until next time, stay awesome
