Pumpkin Violin


This week at Just Add Ink we have a sketch from Mae to inspire us.



It was Hobart eisteddfod time again last week and my daughter got second place in her age group.  Yay!!!  She played so beautifully I almost cried!

Anyway I needed to make a Thank You card so I used the sketch and this is what I came up with.




I decided to use some of my Always dsp that I’ve been hoarding and colour her dress in pumpkin to match.  I’ve had this paper a long time now but I still love it.  It has a bit of a retro feel I think.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Violin Girl (MFT)

Card : choc chip, pumpkin, x-press it, always dsp (ret.)

Ink : memento black

Other : copics, rhinestones, choc chip ribbon (ret.)


Mae has given us a great sketch this week.  I hope you’ll try it out and join us at JAI.
