Colour Capers

I've been trying my hand at sketches again and also thought I'd also try using some colours I don't usually play with. I used Stampin' Up!'s More Mustard ink to brayer the top of my card, then more More Mustard to stamp part of my image, along with Bravo Burgundy and Not Quite Navy for the rest of the image and the sentiment. The designer paper comes from the Patterns Pack II Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the main image three times, ne in each colour, then used various sized circle punches to separate it into rings. I popped up the centre with a Stampin' Dimensional.

I'd love to inspire you to try some new colours and make a card based on my sketch? If you do that, please do let me know! I'd love to see what you do...
