Whenever I take a little stamping break it seems to take me forever to get my mojo going again.  It took me about two days to make the card here because I found myself wandering around my stamp room without a clear purpose!

In the end I combined the color challenge at CAS-ual Fridays with the sketch from Just Add Ink.  It's been ages since I've participated in either challenge so it feels good to join in the fun.  I'm pretty sure I over-did the orange splatters and I seriously considered doing scrapping this and starting again, but decided to leave it as is.  I wish I had listened to my first instinct!!

The weather here promises to be picture perfect this weekend so I hope to get outside and enjoy a little sunshine on my face.  Summer is winding down and it won't be long before we're all wearing sweaters again so I think I'll try and enjoy these warm t-shirt days while I can!

Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge (SU); Scribble and Spill (Stamping Bella); Good Point (The Alley Way Stamps); Exclamations (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
Accessories:  washi tape

Jen, this is beautiful! I love all of the splatters. I am trying to learn how to splatter. Not always easy. This is well done. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
