Inspirin Inkin Challenge

Fancied a bit of inspiration so thought I would have a got at this fortnights inkin challenge.
There is a sketch to copy and I also tried to use al retiring colours.

My card uses the following items:
Card : whisper white, really rust, summer sun and ruby red
Inks summer sun,ruby red, really rust
Stamps Autumn splendour, sab Happy moments and the background stamp Bella toile
I am really pleased with the effect i have got and think I will probably be using the autumn set rather a lot.

Flight of butterfly workshop

Held a workshop last weekend for seven crafting ladies. We made an easel card and a small pizza style box, which held four tealight candles.
The colours we used were:
Inks So saffron, rose red, real red,ruby red
Stamps flight of butterfly and mini tags
Card and dsp in colours to match inks and dsp was from new mini catalogue Sweet pea paper
Accessories, scallop circle punch , mini tag punch and border eyelet punch

I must just add the both the items are cased from fellow demos ,I forget who but hope they don't mind me sharing their ideas.
