Retrosketches & Color Challenges

More wind and rain today...one of those days when it's so hard to crawl out of bed. I finally did get moving and couldn't resist playing along with the 500th Color Challenge on SCS!! Wow! That is quite a milestone! They have a unique "seasons of color" option with 4 different color palettes to match the 4 seasons. I went with the fall combo: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, and Baked Brown Sugar. It was perfect to break in the latest SU set (Work of Art) I ordered with our last stamp club meeting.  It pairs up well with Gorgeous Grunge and you know I love that set!  The layout is using the current sketch from Retrosketches Challenge.  I lined up the zigzag pattern using a Stampamajig.  Thanks for stopping by...

STAMPS: Work of Art (SU), Gorgeous Grunge (SU).
PAPER: White (PTI), Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry (SU).
