Get Sketchy - week 3



Here's my card for Get Sketchy's challenge this week. I thought it was about time I inked up some of the images from my Magnolia fall kit which was on the doormat when we arrived home from our hols last Friday. They are such gorgeous stamps, I spent most of yesterday evening colouring the different images, hence no completed cards made....

I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with distress inks, I know I always seem to use the Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade colours, I really do need to buy some more, gonna have a lot online tonight - any suggestions for must have colours? Thinking I need Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Milled Lavender.

I dug deep into my paper stash and used some Basic Grey papers, a scrap which I ran through a CB embossing folder and distressed the edges and embossing.
Hope you like.....
Am off to make another card now, hopefully in time for Just Magnolia challenge - fingers crossed!

Hi Sam, this is a gorgeous card. I'm glad you didn't have to wait ages for the Fall Magnolias.
I've got 20 of the Distress Ink colours (one I haven't got is Shabby Shutters). I rarely use my Milled Lavender - it looks dull to me when I thought it would be pretty. I use Antique Linen the most and love the colour of Broken China which goes well with Spiced Marmalade.
Happy choosing!
Have a great weekend.
