Just Add Ink #252 - Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday friends ~

There is a brand new challenge over at Just Add Ink today!  Kim has given us a cute 'tilted' sketch, and I think it was quite the challenge for those of us who like straight lines!  I rather enjoyed going 'off centre' a bit though I must admit.

I went with a masculine card using the World Map background stamp.  I've been getting into the habit of creating two similar cards whilst having my supplies out - great to build the stash.  Here is the Lost Lagoon version.  I coloured the oceans with an aqua pen - yep it worked fine on Very Vanilla c/s so long as I kept the water flow to a minimum.

And an Early Espresso...with no oceans coloured.

If you'd like to join the challenge, do pop over to JAI to check out the design team inspiration - lots of lovely creations to get you started...and we do love to check out your entries and blogs so make sure you link up.  Here is the sketch.

Guess where I was last night?  Totally rocking it with Cold Chisel - how lucky was Canberra to get a one off concert announced only a few weeks ago?!!!  Love Jimmy.  A bit hoarse today lol.


  1. Morning!! Do you know whats going on with the JAI blog?? This new challenge hasn't been posted and there is no mention of it on the Forum. Am I missing something???? Love your cards by the way!!!!!

  2. You are so clever to make two cards at the same time!! I like the coloured oceans, adds some nice detail.
    Glad you had fun last night.

  3. Both cards looks fantastic! The coloring on the Lost Lagoon one looks fabulous - I'm watercolour-challenged when it comes to Very Vanilla and Whisper White but you've nailed this! BTW, I just realised I wasn't a follower so fixed that :)

  4. I love how you used the map here P it adds so much texture and interest! You've probably guessed the blue was my favourite. I love your idea of creating two at once must try and put that into action! xxx

  5. Both cards are fabulous! Creating two at one time is something I need to do! You've created such cool masculine cards.

  6. Both card are great Patrice but I really love the blue one. The colouring of the water really pops out and makes the card. Two great masculine cards!

  7. I can just see you screaming "Khe San" at the top of your Lucky girl!
    2 great cards P, l think my fave is the Esspresso/Crumbcake version, but the watercoloured ocean on the blue adds so much detail and a totally different look. xxx

  8. These are both fabulous male cards Patrice - love how they look so different by the water colouring too! So glad you had a fun time out at Cold Chisel - I would be hoarse too lol x

  9. very effective cards Patrice - thanks for the inspiration - Andrea
