Well it’s Inkspiration time again and it is Sketch time. I will let you know a little secret! I truly struggle with Sketch challenges. When doing the other two challenges the colours or scene tells me what SS will be suitable and it narrows my choice down. The possibilities are endless with sketches. It causes me to think harder. I know how slack am I! But this week I decided to push all the little grey cells to do their finest! And guess what I have come up with two cards for this sketch. I’m pretty proud of myself, because half of the grey matter was sleeping! LOL!
Here is the sketch-

I thought I would just let you all know that next week is our last Inkspiration Challenge, which is a Colour Challenge, for this year and we will resume on the 15th of January with the Inspiration Challenge.
