Just Add Ink - Challenge #3

Eastern Influences

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is a SKETCH CHALLENGE based on the sketch below. I think sketch challenges are the easiest to do as you can use any colours and stamp sets etc. that your little heart desires and the layout is all worked out for you!

I was really eager to ink up my Eastern Influences stamp set and wanted to use Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Bravo Burgundy together. When I saw that big circle I knew I wanted to get the brayer out!!! The sky couldn't be any of those colours that I wanted to use, so I added Bordering Blue to the mix.

I think Eastern Influences is going to be one of my favourite sets - just love the birds and the blossoms.

Here's JAI's First Sketch Challenge

Here's the Project Details:
Stamp Set: Eastern Influences
Cardstock: Glossy, Plain and Textured Whisper White, Textured Always Artichoke
Ink: Basic Brown, Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Bordering Blue, Mellow Moss, Pale Plum
Accessories: Linen Thread, Watercolour Paper, Aqua Painter, 5/8" Bravo Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Stampin' Dimensionals, Brayer

I hope you have time to play along with the sketch challenge this week. Most ladies, on blogs that I have browsed through, have said that they have more time to craft now that the kids are back at school, but the reverse is true for me. My holiday is almost at an end so it's back to work I go. I guess it will be good to get back into some sort of routine again and get a Stamp Club started, along with organising some SAB workshops! Being on the Design Team at Just Add Ink will ensure I add a post to my blog at least once a week!

Looking forward to viewing all the entries for Challenge # 3,
