Now for something completely different....


Hope you're having a super Sunday - if a little soggy LOL!

Limited time to craft today as although I ache a little after my long walk yesterday, it hasn't proved a good enough excuse to not do any housework :o(

With the little spare time I had, I thought today I'd play along with the Inspiration and Themes Challenge over on ILWS set by the ever so lovely Kate. We had to take inspiration from this pic:WOW! What bold contrasting colours to play with eh? I was soooooo wishing I had the Damask Designs set from Papertrey Ink to play with as this set popped straight into my head when seeing this pic - typical eh?!

As I don't own Damask Designs, this challenge really did take me out of my comfort zone (unlike the last one!) but I did have a sketch from Taylored Expresions to play along with to help:
This is the final result (WARNING: You may need your sunglasses LOL!)

Okay so I know this isn't 'my style' but I enjoyed playing along nonetheless. I wasn't really sure whether to post it up or not as I still can't make my mind up about it! In fact I can't even make up my mind as to what 'my style' is LOL!!
Card Recipe
Stamps: The Stamp Barn: Sunshine Designs
Inks: Whispers Dye Ink - Green Leaf, Papertrey Ink - Raspberry Fizz
