It is a New Year!

This week on the Atlantic hearts challenge we are challenged to use this sketch:
Over on the Color my heart color dare for challenge #
I spent some time in my studio tonight and created this card: 
I used Memento ink in black to stamp my images from the Chelsea card workshop stamp set. Then took a water brush after pressing the lids of the ink pads to put ink onto the lid and painted in the flowers, using Mink and Heather ink. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in heather. I embossed a small strip of sweet leaf paper with dots to finish off the sketch. All the supplies can be purchased via my web site on the right. It was nice to spend some time creating tonight. You still have until Sunday to enter the sketch challenge and check out the color challenges, you have two weeks to create with those.
Happy creating.
