Just Add Ink Challenge #406 - Sketch

Good Day Crafty Friends,
Hope you are having a fabulous day. Mine has been a productive one, not too much crafting unfortunately. You know all those chores that you mean to get done when you have a spare minute, I did them all today lol - repotting plants, replacing corroded security lights, gate latches and the letterbox -  the joys of living close to the Ocean.
I did manage to squeeze in enough time during my day to complete a card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add A Sketch.
I find Sketches can be hit or miss for me. Sometimes they come easily and others not so much so. The card I created using this weeks challenge sketch falls into the later category. This sketch sat on my desk for weeks. Every time I looked at it all I could conjure was the basic shapes on a piece of cardstock. But you know what, sometimes that's all you need to do.
I have a few basic strips and shapes I keep with my colour coach. When I get in a bit of a bind I pull them all out and just fiddle. Here is the result:

I have mixed a few new items with some older stuff. The striped Lemon Lime Twist panel is a Sale-a-bration Card from the Tutti Frutti Pack. A Perfect Days Memories & More card, the kind you use for journaling/writing on, has been die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then shadowed with a Flirty Flamingo circle. A few Flirty Flamingo enamel shapes and Silver Metallic Thread were also added.

The Whisper White Background has been embossed with the new Subtle Embossing Folder. I am so glad I got given this Embossing Folder in my box of Onstage goodies. I probably would have overlooked it for other, more prominent, folders. The other new item is the little silver leaves trinket embellishments.

I am thrilled the Cake Soiree Bundle is carrying over into the new catalogue, as that little flower die and the floral stamps are my favies. I almost always team the flower with the foliage from Jar of Love.

  1. Your card is stunning, Jackie! I can't wait to get that EF, it looks fabulous.

  2. You succeed even when you struggle to find inspiration - you are amazing. This is the sweetest card! Kelly x

  3. My goodness Jackie - not only did you knock off an endless chores list, this card is out of this world pretty and crisp!! I LOVE it!!! I find I make cards in between boring old chores and tasks, the card making is my “reward” and I like to do bits and walk away then come back.


Thanks so much for your comments xx
