Sweet Inkspirations

Hi there,

I've cheated again and combined two challenges. The Inkspiration Colour Challenge #19, hosted this week by Chantelle & Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch #60.

First the Inkspiration colours:

Then Karen's sketch:

And finally, my creation:

I found these colours a bit challenging but fortunately I had my lovely goodie box (see this post) and the Sweet Pea DSP has Taken With Teal papers (and Choc Chip, but, sadly, none with both colours on the one page). I've also given a sneak peak of some of the gorgeous new stamps that will be in the Autumn mini cat, so exciting!!! I've also used Chocolate Chip CS & Grosgrain ribbon, TwT CS & 'sprinkles' & rhinestones that are non-SU. I used markers to colour some parts of the right hand image. It took a while but I got there in the end.

Is anyone out there in the blogosphere going to Convention? I'd love to hear from you if you're going. I'm so excited about it. They are bringing in a new rostering system at work so I even took a week of annual leave to ensure that I would have the time off, yippee! Hopefully I'll see some of you down there :-)

Thanks Chantelle, for hosting this week.

Hi Fiona,
nice to see the new set in action, and you added some lovely finishing touches. I am going to convention (yippee)- for the first time too - so perhaps we can meet up.

Gorgeous colours & such a beautiful card Fiona, I will be ordering this set when I get back from my cruise -I restrained myself with to much on & knowing I would have no time to play!
Happy to say I will be at Convention & looking forward to seeing you there.
