Just Add Ink # 211 - Just Add a Sketch

Happy Easter Friday ~

Ahhh bliss, I'm having a quiet day pottering in my craft room!  THAT hasn't happened in a very long time and I'm so looking forward to it.  Gorgeous Kid is off at a mate's house and the place is all mine. I'm ignoring the housework, and I got the washing up to date yesterday - bonus!

We have a new challenge over at Just Add Ink.  This week Paula gave us a sketch to play with.

Can you believe this is the FIRST time I've used any of my In Colour Ruffled Ribbon?  Talk about hoarding it just to look at!  To colour my flower I used a dauber and sponged Strawberry Slush ink, and Pear Pizzazz on the leaves - a different way to colour if you're short on time.  Even though I have the matching die I decided to fussy cut this one as my sponging had gone past the outer edge of the image.  The designer paper is from the SAB Sweet Sorbet range.

To check out the sketch, and lots more design team inspiration head over to JAI.  We'd love to have you to play along with us.

I hope you all have a really wonderful Easter and enjoy extra family time this long weekend.  Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Oh my - the first time you've used the ruffled ribbon? I loooove it so much that I think I'm hording it!
    A day in the craft room sounds fantastic and I hope you enjoy it.

    Happy Easter to you and the rest of the fam xox

  2. Sounds like a perfect day..:0) Love that you made the flower the focus and such a pretty colour combination. l chuckled at your hoarding comment...I can so relate to ribbon hoarding..:0) But t it really adds that extra pretty to your card. xx

  3. Just beautiful - I love the elegance of that single flower!

  4. Hope your day turned out as lovely as you were hoping P :) I love the impact your flower has - the dauber colouring worked great. It was well worth using the ruffled ribbon too - really grounds the flower! xxx

    1. It was a very productive day Kim, and the silence was golden! Wish days like that would come around more often *wink wink*.

  5. I have to giggle at your ribbon is lovely ribbon though. I think I should hoard a bit of it myself. Love the way you have coloured this flower Patrice - it's really effective. Chantell
