Hello Friends,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge and The Friday Mashup Challenge, which was to be inspired by an Indian Summer or use three colours from  the suggested colour combo or Mash it Up.  I chose to Mash it Up.  I used markers on the stamp to colour the main image and dimensionals to separate the layers.  Don't these colours look fabulous together and I love this very easy sketch by Tui Nathan.
