Just Add Ink #396 | Just Add a Sketch

Hello there stamping friends! It's time again for a new challenge over at Just Add Ink. Congratulations to last weeks winners and thank you to you all who entered last weeks challenge. The weeks seem to roll so quickly and before you know it one challenge is over and an new one begins.

If you've been following me for a while you will know that a sketch challenge is my all time favourite! All the hard work is done for you! All you have to do is pick out a stamp set, some paper and embellishments and put it all together using the sketch!

I've gone for a bright and fun card today using the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp set with the co-ordinating DSP 6" x 6" stack, Picture Perfect Party. The colours for the card all come out of the DSP stack so that they all co-ordinate together. 

The background is just repeatedly stamping the small triangle stamp using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink on Bermuda Bay Cardstock. This is one of the easiest ways to make a fun and interesting background. It is so easy to do create a background like this as you don't have to be to precise. Just stamp away and your done!

The candles are part of a two-step stamping technique. The first part of the image is the lighter colour which I first stamped off once to get the lighter hue and then the patterned image on the top is the same colour stamped in full strength. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love thins two-step stamping, especially using the one colours, as you get a whole lot more out of you inks and more variation of colour.

The card is finished off with one of the sentiments from the stamp set and then die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. and then accented with some of the fabulous and beautiful Stampin' Up! Ribbon, Trim and Embellishments. All my favourite things to finish off and accent a card!
