Just Add Ink Challenge #6

March 2, 2010 at 5:18 pm 12 comments

This week’s Just Add Ink Challenge #6 was a great sketch challenge that was perfect for another birthday card for school!

I really like this sketch (I may even have another go at it!), but wanted to do something a little different with the 3 squares – rather than using 3 smaller images, I wanted to use one large image that was cut into 3 sections. I raided my stamp stash to find something that would work and came across my Pick a Petal stamp set (I was just saying to a friend that I haven’t used it in a while!). So I stamped a large half flower and used it as my main image on my large card (A5 size).

I used Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum & Kiwi Kiss for my colour combo – I really love purples, so I decided to break them out for this card! Plus it keeps it nice and fresh and fun! I cut the flower into 3 pieces and mounted them on Pale Plum card. I also used some Kiwi Kiss Patterns DSP and tied a bow with my Elegant Eggplant ribbon. I added the sentiment from Whimsical Words (a gorgeous FREE Sale-a-Bration set) and finished with some scattered bling!!
