Creative Colour Sketch

I was looking around at my favourite challenge blogs, as I often do on a Friday, and found two that I thought would go well together.  Colour Q colour challenge and Stampin' Royalty sketch challenge. 

I have to say I loved the look of the colour combo but struggled a bit with putting it together myself, but decided to stick at it and I am very pleased I did.  I have to say that the sketch really helped me keep focus, I initially had the Soft Suede as the base card, but with using wrapped bakers twine I needed to add a layer, I think the Island Indigo as the base gives the card a lift, and ties the colours together.  I am LOVING the new In-Colours, I have only used two of the five on this card and can't wait to share the other three with you. 

Happy Stamping
