Glad we’re friends
This week at Just Add Ink we have a lovely sketch challenge from Bronwyn.
I needed to make a card for one of my daughter’s friends who was turning 10, so I used the sketch and this is what I came up with.
My daughter wanted the card to be a little more grown-up and not so “kiddish”, now that they’re into double digits :) She thought this card was perfect for her friend who loves black, bling and pink.
The flower is actually melon mambo, but in the photo it looks more red than pink unfortunately. I used a black permanent marker to colour the rhinestones and the clear rhinestone brad.
I also used 2 new in colours, pool party and island indigo. I used white craft ink on my finial press embossing folder with pool party and it looked gorgeous.
Stamps : best yet (ret.)
Card : black, white, island indigo, pool party, melon mambo
Ink : stazon, white, melon mambo
Other : big shot, polka dot ef, finial press ef, rhinestones, rhinestone brad, filigree brad, circle punch, island floral die, scallop trim border
Please take a look at what the rest of the design team have come up with this week and give this sketch a try yourself.
