We have a great sketch challenge happening at Just Add Ink this week.  Here's the sketch Tina designed, for us to use to create a card or other papercraft project.

 I've stuck pretty literally to the sketch, save for an added circle to house my sentiment.  How yummy is the Sweet Sugarplum glitter ribbon  I have used?  It's available to buy from 1st September, in a combo with a roll of gorgeous silver glitter ribbon.

I added some clear Wink of Stella to the bird and foliage, but, alas, my photography doesn't allow you to enjoy that glimmery detail!  Try as I might, I couldn't get the right light to capture it.  I used blender pens, and ink pooled in the lids of my inkpads, to colour the bird, and to add a touch of colour to the branch and leaves.

Listed below are all the current Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card.  If you click on one of the thumbnail images, you will be taken direct to my online store - very handy, if you wish to buy these products for yourself!

The rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have made such beautiful cards using this sketch; be sure to check them out here.

  1. I just love your choice of DSP Christine - it looks just like a wonderfully deep shady leafy background - and your lovely birds is sitting in a little patch of sunlight! xxx

  2. I love that sweet bird Christine, such pretty colours and that dsp is a perfect background. xx

  3. This is so pretty Christine! I love all the layers of texture you've used - the leaves in the DSP, background stamp for your lovely bird and that gorgeous ribbon too! All working together so beautifully! xx

  4. Well something else I missed in the upcoming catalogue....glitter ribbon!

    I love this designer paper layered on Smoky Slate, great combo! You've coloured your bird really prettily and I'm glad to know it's not just me that can't photograph all the shimmer and shine of Wink. Terrific card, my friend. xx

  5. Beautiful layers and love that bird! Awesome glitter ribbon too~
