JAI Sketch Challenge

I spent a wonderful morning crafting with a fellow team member Ali and managed to make quite a few things.   The last of these is my entry for Just Add Ink this week which was a sketch challenge.

I was initially stumped for colour ideas so turned to the trusty catalogue and to the Greenhouse Gala dsp for colour inspiration. I find that when I am in a can't decide what colour to use that choosing a dsp colour swatch is a great start.

I also had the Friends Never Fade stamp set which I purchased recently and had yet not played with. I really like what I have come up with and hope you do too. Sorry the photo is not quite the best.

Happy stamping till next time............
