Something a little different for me!

Did you watch the Olympic Ceremony last evening?  I did and that in itself was un-usual for me, it was worth it if only to see HM The Queen being such a sport! Then the cauldron that was inspired.

Had some chores to do so crafting had to wait until this evening. It's times like this that I'm especially grateful to Less is More their  CAS requirements provide the opportunity to a quick crafting fix.   This week they have a sketch, this might be the first time I've used a sketch!  

Checking Craft-Room entries today came across a colour scheme that would never occur to me Yellow and Orange at Totally Paper Crafts.   This is a hot combination and totally our of my comfort zone but fun to play around with.

Not my best effort but hopefully its opened the creativity channels.

  16. Your card has brought memories of my sailing. It was a wonderful time. Just like your card full of energy, and the announcement of challenges and struggles with nature. beautiful work
