Hi there

I finally got round to making a card using the colour combination from Inkspiration.  I loved the autumn tones of the challenge and as I have a few male cards to do this month  it worked in well.  I'm a bit late though for the challenge - never mind the receiver of the card won't know that!  I combined the colour challenge with a layout challenge from Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I wasn't a big fan of the Regal colours but I think I'm warming to them!  I don't have anything in the Poppy Parade range so changed it for Riding Hood Red (this was allowed) and this is what I came up with.

I really like the effect colouring in gives and have yet to try aqua painting.  Maybe that needs to be my next challenge - try a different technique.  I have sponged round the edge of the sentiment as I feel this softens the starkness of Whisper White or Very Vanilla against a dark mat.

This was the sketch:

I hope to try and make a gift to go with the card from the latest round of Ustampwithdawnandfriends.  If you haven't joined in yet take a look and sign up for the next round.
