I like orange

Step back in time with me.
Remember the days before cute, die-cuts, inks in every shade,
 and two-step stamps -
when you actually had to colour an image yourself.

This is what the LIM one layer challenge has made me do.

I dug deep into my stamp box and discovered this never inked, orange tree
and even though colouring was never my strong suit,  I dusted off my Copics
and tried to give it a little depth.
I admit - going back to colouring was totally engrossing and kind of fun.


Less Is More - One Layer + Sentiment.

I think the stamp is by Whiff Of Joy
Sentiment is Clearly Besotted, Say It In Style.

Super colouring on that image; it really pops off the page. Luckily you have a pretty bold sentiment for our sentiment takes centre stage challenge at Less is More, so it is not overpowered by the image. A really fabulous make. Thank you for sharing it with us.
