Afternoon Dream

Last week the Inklings had their December cyberstamp, this month hosted by Margaret. Margaret set our first challenge as a sketch challenge, using a sketch from the SU! demo website. I took some liberty with the sketch, as I tend to do, and the best thing was she posted it early, so I was thinking it over while getting dinner etc so when I actually sat down to make it it all went a lot quicker. I decided to go with the Afternoon Tea paper that matches the Live Your Dream set. I selected papers with just the blue and green colours (omitting Groovy Guava) and added Blue Bayou to the mix by colouring the petals in with my Blue Bayou marker and then layering the flower on Bayou cardstock.
