This week at Just Add Ink we have a great sketch challenge from Bronwyn.
Here is what I came up with :
I decided to try to make a collage for my background and then cut it into three panels to fit the sketch. I used a few different stamps and colours and I think it worked quite well.
The flower is big and beautiful. I made it as I’ve made these paper flowers before but this time I used the island floral die, fancy flower punch and the five petal flower punch. It actually looks better in real life, it kind of looks a bit flat in the photo but it isn’t. I also decided to see how it would look with different coloured petals. I used pink pirouette and blushing bride and spritzed it with champagne shimmer mist so it’s actually a bit sparkly. I really like how it turned out.
I also tried something new with the bow. It is a double bow with crumpled seam binding. I found a really great tutorial by Ann Schach here if you’d like to give it a try too.

Card : crumb cake, white, suede, pink pirouette, blushing bride

Please take a look at what the rest of the JAI design team created using this sketch as their inspiration and get creative yourself.
