Still addINKtive Challenge #2 - Sketch & Colour

Hello & welcome!  This week's challenge at still addINKtive is a sketch & colour combination:-


I have used some great products (from the new seasonal catalogue) to create a post it note holder in this awesome colour combo:-


The flower stamp is from the Secret Garden stamp set (which has matching dies - woohoo!)  The tickets are from the That's The Ticket stamp set & the small embossed cross stitch line is one of the embossing folders from the Needlepoint Border set (of 2).

I don't have any of the square or rectangular scalloped dies, so I created the background square using my edgelits die.


These colours look fabulous together, so I have teamed them with white to keep the palette nice & crisp.  The bonus was that I had a white post it note pad, as well as a turquoise mini gel pen to use for the project!  :)

We hope you can join our challenge this week at still addINKtive, by using the sketch OR the colours, OR both combined.  The rest of the still addINKtive team have some gorgeous samples to get your creative juices flowing!

Wow! Edgelit dies .. I was trying to work out how you did the beautiful scalloped square. Post it notes are a fantastic little gift and using new stuff is so much fun. Your project is super cute.
