Something slightly different for this months Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge…. this month I have set the girls a colour theme!
I am loving playing with the new In-Colours from this years Annual catalogue… but I wanted to push myself away from using them as a set of colours, and towards integrating them into the rest of our inks. I cannot wait to see what the other ladies have done with this combo!
I am a big believer in the power of craft…. I use my crafting as a creative escape, a de-stress, and ‘me time’ away from my busy personal life and hectic day job. I love nothing more than being able to set aside a a few hours, a whole day, or even just 10 minutes in my craft room with my stamps and ink. Crafting is more to me than just making pretty things (although, I love to make pretty things!) its about the friendships I have made whilst crafting. I am so lucky to have some wonderful friends through stamping, the ladies that are hopping with me today are just a handful. They are all so special….. and I hope that on this sunny Saturday that they are ‘doing something creative!’….. actually I know that a few of them are, because this weekend we are on a crafty retreat, stamping, making pretty things…. and spending some much needed time in the spa!
This card uses two stamp sets; Crafting Forever and Work of Art. The sentiment and paint brushes are stamped in Smoky Slate, and die cut using the Stitched Shapes dies (I still can’t put these away!). I have incorporated the colour theme into the stamped panel…. dots from ‘Work of Art’ stamped in Fresh Fit, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.
