Happy Eclectic Birthday For JAI #365

 Happy Friday and welcome :-) This week we have finally passed the Shortest Day - Hip Hip Hooray!! Now we will get a little more light each today and whilst the Winter chills might increase, we can rest assured that Spring is on it's way :-)

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. And this week we have a fabulous Clean and Simple Sketch for you that's been designed by Karren. You can use it as is or flip it around, whatever you like :-) The design team have created such a wonderful array of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and join with us.

Every year when I first see the new SU! Catalogue whilst there are sets I often love, there is always one that stand outs to me over all the rest. Last year it was Sunshine Wishes - and haven't we given that a run for it's money :-0 And this year - yes, it's this one - Oh So Eclectic. I love the mix of clean and water colour look images and the papers look amazing too! So here we are, the first outing for this gorgeous bundle. The background is not water coloured - it's DSP!! And I just "had to" add the detailed banner behind the sentiment too :-)

The little bloom is a two step stamp and then the die cut overlay adds a little extra bling and detail. I kept pretty close to the sketch details this week - just needed an extra leaf for balance so I made sure it dropped a little lower and is almost a similar height to the flower.

Card stock: Berry Burst, Not Quite Navy, Powder Pink, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Designer Series Paper: Naturally Eclectic
Inks: Berry Burst, Not Quite Navy, Lemon Lime Twist
Stamps: Oh So Eclectic, Sunshine Sayings (still a fave!)
Accessories: Big Shot, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Hexagon Dynamic EF, White Perfect Accents (with white sticker removed), Fine Tip Glue Pen

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous inspiration the design team have for you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this fabulous sketch this week too!

Happy stamping until next time,
