Clean & Simple FTL#124

After umming and aahing for a while I decided that I would give the latest Clean & Simple FTL#124 sketch challenge a go. Here is the challenge layout which you can also find here:-

When I saw this sketch I struggled to find an image that I would be happy with and in the end I settled on this:-Now this is a set that I haven't inked up in quite a while and for some reason I always seem to go for this kind of colour scheme with it. I have gone with Cajun Craze for the base followed by a piece of More Mustard, which I have stamped with the Canvas background. My flower image is coloured using blender pens and ink pads.

While I was not 100% happy with this card to start with it has kind of grown on me. It is very "clean & simple" so exactly what I had set out to achieve.

Now I'm off to make a coffee and put my feet up for a bit. The younger boys and I went for a long walk along the beach this afternoon, something very Australian for the day.

Happy stamping,

Very nice Karen. It's been a while since I've seen this set used but it was one of my first favourites. Unfortunately I have parted with it now.

I think your choice of colours is perfect for that set, very nice card for what I thought was a tricky sketch.
Congrats on JAI top pick.
