Just Add Ink #158...

Hey stampers, "Whoohoo" it's Friday and that means the weekend is upon us and it's Just Add Ink challenge time again. This week we have another great sketch from Mae to play with.

Now I'm not normally one to think outside the box when it comes to sketch's, but l did have a little fun with this one. I decided to flip it first and rather than use DSP for the horizontal layer, l used my Simply Scored Board instead. Not sure those lines stand out that well in the pic, but they are there and I'm pretty sure l used all of the components in the sketch.

As you can see, it's a pretty clean & simple one layer card, but still interesting enough l think and l do love the crisp black and white with the pop of purple and green. The leaves were created using one of the other flowers in the Secret Garden Set, as l liked the way they appeared more realistic looking.

The Just Add Ink girls have some great inspiration for you, so don't forget to stop by and check them out and hopefully you can join us and play along with this weeks challenge.
