I don't really like orange at all!

Oh boy.... this going to be the third post for today..... Can you believe it? I've actually so much to show you, however I will try and space it out... but I want to show you this NOW....lol!

I find the Stamping 411 sketches just speak to me, although I haven't had an opportunity to do one for a couple of weeks. Today I spotted this one and knew that I'd have to team it up with...

..this oh so challenging colour challenge from Inkspirations 4U.... eeew! I so don't like orange.... but I thought I might be able to work with on this occasion....lol!

So this is what I created.

I really enjoyed colouring my new Morning Cup images in. And yes I did stick with the colours above..... they just soften up a lot when picked up from the lid with a blender pen. I also used the markers for some direct colouring too! I was a wee bit naughty and used some Soft Suede to create shadows under the cup.... should I be disqualified???

Card: Basic Black, Tango Tangerine, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Tango Tangerine, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede
Punches: Scallop Trim Border, Scallop Trim Corner, Medium Jewellery
Ribbon: 5/8" Basic Black Satin
Embellishments: Basic Black brads
Stamp Set: Morning Cup

Till next time, happy stamping...
