LIM - Sketch


Good morning (just) from a dull overcast Southcoast for reason's I'll not go into my friend Sue will be pleased by today's weather LOL   you see you cannot please all of the people all of the time but there is always someone you can please.

Not the biggest fan of sketches but the Less is More gals don't do sketches covered in frills and flowers and stuff so this is an area where I like their ideas with blinking an eye LOL.   Neat sketch just three images in a row and lots of empty space.


Thought of this Inkadinkado stamp right away and the blue gray colours seem perfect.   Might have been the Colour Create Challenge's theme this week that influenced me, the gray is the mat the stamped image rests on.

Had to get my thingamejig out to line the sailing boats up think they look OK.   White Inkssentials pen to add highlights and some dark blue ric rak ribbon to underline it all.

There might be a LIM card to come but for now this is it.
