Just Add Ink Challenge - JAI27

For another great place to find challenges, layout and inspiration - head on over to Just Add Ink.  You can participate in their sketch or colour challenges.  This week's challenge is a sketch challenge, and it's one I will use over and over again!  This week's challenge sketch:

Needing to break away from the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Pale Plum colour combo's I've been using of late, I wanted to do something with bright colours.  And of course, the Tart & Tangy stamp set with bright bold colours is the perfect solution!  It just happens to be one of my all-time favourite stamp sets too!!

Here's a front view which hopefully shows the embossed background a bit better!

This was a great challenge to play along with!  And a great colour combination for a dreary winter day here in Canberra.  Here's what I used:

Stamps: Tart & Tangy and Tiny Tags
Ink: Yoyo Yellow, Just Orange, Green Galore, Garden Green & Bravo Burgandy
Papers: Whisper White, Yoyo Yellow & Green Galore CS
Other: Circle & Medium Tag punches, Big Shot & Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Crochet Thread, Crystal Effects &Stampin' Dimensionals.

To give the cherries some oomph, I highlighted them with Crystal Effects and raised them with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Perfect.  Now I might go and get some fruit ... feeling a bit hungry for some!!
