Just Add Ink #522....Just Add a Sketch

Hello & welcome to my share for this week's Just Add Ink sketch.

Funny story as to how this card came to be. There has been a lot of talk in our house about my husband's Covid beard these past six months of working from home. I don't particularly love it but he has put a lot of effort (& new products) into learning how to care for it - which I tease him about endlessly. I had the gnome stamps sitting on my craft desk one day & he commented that they were super cute. The joke between us was that he looks a bit like these little gnomies nowadays.

Soooooo a gnome card it had to be. His beard is quite grey, with only a smattering of dark hair in it. I tried to replicate it in my colouring....didn't quite achieve the same look with copics but he'll think it's funny when he receives this card for his birthday next month.

The twins think the centre gnome looks just like dad!

I've backed my Whisper White c/s panel with Granny Apple Green dsp & raised it on foam, leaving the matching c/s on the base layer. The sentiment is heat embossed & also raised.

If you'd like to join the challenge fun this week, here is the sketch for you. Pop over to JAI & have a look at the design team inspiration.

Here is hubby in all his bearded glory - good comparison do you think? Hehehehe.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you are all well, happy & healthy.
