Just Add Ink #73

This week at Just Add Ink it's a sketch challenge. And to celebrate their 500th follower there are prizes involved! So why not get going and enter something yourself! Here's my interpretation of the sketch.


I haven't done a layout for a little while so it was nice to throw one together. There's a lot of 'white space' on this layout so I used the large stamp from the Fresh Cuts set to create a bit of texture. It's done up in clear embossing powder with the Night of Navy ink pad stamped straight over it.

To get this effect with your ribbon, double the length you'd normally need, sew down the centre of the ribbon with needle and thread and gather until it looks right. I've heat sealed the ribbon ends with a lighter and then stuck the whole thing on the layout with sticky strip.

The blues, Night of Navy ribbon, circular embellishments and a bit of bling gave the page a bit of a modern nautical look which I'm very pleased with, even if I say so myself. Haha. Hope you like!
