Hey Presto

Just Add Ink #73
Sketch Challenge

Well Ladies, I said I would be back soon with some challenge's to show you. As usual I went to my favorite challenge site over at Just Add Ink and this week they have a sketch challenge for us. I know I have been missing in action for a while and its so good to be able to sit down and do some challenges not only for you but for myself as well. The sketch they came up with this week, really made me think outside the square. I wanted to do something I don't usually do. This technique has been done by alot of Demonstrators but I have yet to try it, so I thought outside the square and gave it ago.This is the sketch we had to use.

Here is my card that I made. Our previous mini had some Presto Papers available and although I did manage to buy 2 sets of this I haven't used them up until now, so not only are the Just Add Ink design team challenging me but I to also challenged myself. A new technique and new papers. Wow, clap for me....hehehe

I stamped the flowers from the Petal Pizzazz Set with Poppy Red on the Presto papers and cut them out, stuck them to the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then run it through the bigshot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. (Abit hard to see sorry, but it has been). I then also used the Presto Papers and daubed with Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz Ink, for the piece along the left handside. I also decided to run the Heart Border punch along the bottom and added a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock under it.

So I would just like to say thanks for stopping by and it really is good to be back having fun with the challenges. Don't forget to click on over to see what the wonderful Design team came up with.
