But I digress. I was very pleased to get back home and find that, in my absence, my new Altenew stamps had arrived. So very exciting! I've spent a lot of today playing with them and to give that play focus I've taken inspiration from two challenges. The first is the sketch from the Global Design Project.
The second was the colour challenge at Fab Friday.
The Altenew sets I bought (yes, I got two) I got because in addition to offering layered stamping they gave me a chance to explore water colouring which is what I've done today. Well, more of an ink wash really. I hope neutrals are ok in the colour challenge because I've used a touch of gold and Soft Slate as well.
Great sketch - I loved working with it. It's funny how your view of colours can change. Initially, I didn't like Delightful Dijon but I've used it in a couple of things lately and now feel that I'll buy a pack of it. It's actually great!
And I just can't resist adding in a Hobbit set photo - it's amazing to walk around the best representation of Tolkien's Shire you'll ever see. A real Hobbit village in the middle of a sheep farm! I feel a re-read of the books coming on...
Delighted to be the Fab Fave at Fab Friday with this card.
