Hello! It’s time for another creative challenge from the Just Add Ink team. This week it’s a sketch challenge by Narelle.
For such a simple sketch, I actually found it difficult to get started on this card. But once I had the concept, it was all go from there!
I ended up turning it on the side widening up those rectangles and using a stamp set that has only just recently arrived – Fable Friends. These characters are just the sweetest!
The gingham still isn’t my favourite DSP but I’ll admit that it’s pretty cute on some cards!!! Which is why I like to own all the DSP – I just buy extra packs of my favourites! It would seem that lots of people LOVE the Gingham suite though – the DSP has been popular around the world.
The little bunny from Fable Friends is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Rather than using two colours to create depth of colour, I used Light Smoky Slate and dark Balmy Blue with the Color Lifter pen. I love the colour variation it adds!
One cute bunny card didn’t seem to be enough (I’m low on my stock of baby cards at the moment) so it seemed like a good idea to make a pink version too!
The Blushing Bride version of the card was matched with Tropical Escape DSP and ribbon from the All My Love combo pack in the Occasions catalogue.
More colouring with Blends – the pink is the retired dark Pink Pirouette.
I seem to be using the Vertical Greetings stamp set quite a lot lately. I remember when I so desperately wanted a greetings set that ran down rather than across. I hope this set stays in the range for years to come!
