JAI48 - Pendant Park

Time for a sketch challenge at Just Add Ink!  Because the silly season is upon us, this week's challenge will run for 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to get your entry in!

Here's the sketch:

I decided to flip the sketch.  You'll see it's fundmentally the same, but a bit stretched.  I'm also entering this in CASE Study Challenge #19, I think it's a good fit.

I just got Pendant Park this week (it's a bargain with the December Frenzy at the moment!), and for some reason I decided to try and watercolour a sunset.  I did it by embossing the image in black on watercolour paper, spraying the paper with water until it was pooling on the top, and then add my colours.  It's not exactly what I envisioned, but I think it's okay.  What do you think?

Stamp sets - Pendant Park
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolour paper
Inks - Versamark, More Mustard, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy
Accessories - Black embossing powder, heat tool, water spray bottle, aqua painter, EK Success Embossed Scallop Punch, dimensionals



  1. Looks great Danielle. I love the mix of colours and the black matt really makes things 'pop'.

  2. That black matt does really make it pop and it instantly gave me inspiration for a 'curtain call' or window blind on a card - when I will get to put that idea in to play who knows but it shows how one person's work can inspire an idea for another!

  3. What a gorgeous card - love the watercolour effect!
    Thanks so much for joining us on CASE study!

  4. Loveing the watercolour effect too DD. Just got this set myself, so I think (after seeing your creation) it will definitely see ink this weekend! After my other project is done first, of course *hangs head in shame*

  5. love your simple and elegant design, the colouring on the background is stunning! thanks for playing along with us! May your christmas be filled with love and magic! :)

  6. This is beautiful! Love it!

  7. Ooh very elegant! When I saw it the first thing I thought was "how did she do the background" - so thanks for telling me:)

  8. Well, I thought you'd used a brayer until I saw the fine print - a lovely watercoloured background.

  9. What a pretty design, Danielle :) Thank you for joining us again in this busy season, Happy New Year wishes to you!! xxx
