JAI 252 sketch challenge - Indescribable Gift

It's time for another Just Add Ink challenge & this week we have a sketch for you.
Pretty easy & flexible, right? Well, as a gal who likes nice vertical or horizontal lines, my first thought was 'eeek, it's tilted!' I guess that's why it's called a challenge :-). So after having a think & rotating the sketch I came up with this...& it really was much easier than I thought.
The gorgeous blossom stamp from Indescribable Gift worked well with the sketch so I stamped it on white vellum card (my current obsession) & coloured the back of the image with rich razzleberry & old olive Blendabilities markers. Colouring on the vellum is so easy - no blending & gives a really pretty, soft look. I adhered the vellum onto Typeset DSP & blushing bride card (using a little fast fuse on all vellum corners). The sentiment (Chalk Talk) is stamped on vanilla card, coloured with wild wasabi Blendabilities, with a circle of vellum over the top to soften it. Last, I stamped the base with Gorgeous Grunge for some subtle texture & wrapped some baked brown sugar twine (best name ever).

See all the DT's challenge projects on the JAI blog. We'd love you to play along with the challenge & share your creation with us there too.

Thanks for visiting today. Mr colourmehappy really liked my finished card so I hope you do too. Leave me a comment if you do or you have any questions & pin away if you feel like it too.

Inky wishes, Di

I really found this sketch a challenge too but I adore it flipped over and I might just use your card for inspiration!

The sketch looks terrific turned on its side. I love love love your vellum coloured flowers - such a pretty feminine card, with gorgeous colours. Definitely will use this for inspiration when I try another 'tilted' card - I really quite liked it despite being a 'straight line' gal myself. x

What a stunning card Di! I love that you turned the sketch on the side too! I never think to do that! Your colouring is beautiful and I now have this set on its way after this card tipped me over the edge to finally buy it! Can't wait to have a play! Love the layering of the vellum on the Typeset DSP. Looks fantastic!

This is so gorgeous and just love the flower stamp you used, reminds me of cherry blossoms. Your right about the colouring on vellum, really does give such a soft, feminine effect. And well done conquering the sketch!!

Wow! This is so soft and pretty and Di - I love your coloured vellum and how you've added it over the Typeset DSP. So gorgeous! And such a fabulous idea to flip the sketch too :-)
