OCC Sketch Thursday

Hi everyone - I hope your week has been going good so far. If you've been visiting for awhile you'll know I LOVE sketch challenges - so I'm extra excited to be joining the OCC Sketch design team every Thursday to bring you a fun sketch!

Sketches are a wonderful starting point for your creativity - when you play along, you should feel free to go where the creative muse takes you! Here's this week's sketch...

and here's my card...

I was fortunate enough to get to play with a friends Thoughts & Prayers set - I love the effect you get from inking this stamp with markers. I got the colour combo by pulling out a few markers just to see how they looked together - it's a great quick way to try out colours. My combo here is Almost Amethyst, Brocade Blue and Garden Green.

I hope you'll play along with the OCC team this week - head on over to see the wonderful design team samples and link up your creation!

  4. WOW Sarah! This is simply sensational. There is something special about the way you put colours together! (Silke too!) So ... I have decided that you need to write a list of your favourite colour combos ... so I can print it out ... and keep it on my desk! I just wish I had the "colour mojo" that you have! I really love this combo! Just so so nice! Hugs, Andrea xxx
