Just Add Ink #249...Sketch!

Tina has provided us with a great sketch to play with this week over at Just Add Ink. As l often do, l took it literally and used the Hexagon punch.
I started buy punching one out of scrap and used it to trace a rough guide of 7 hex shapes joined together, as in the sketch. Once l had a rough area of the size, l inked up the lovely "Painted Petals"  using Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky and stamped within the lines and punched the Hexagons from that.
I must say, l was really happy with how this looks, l love the soft colours and hint of gold.
