Sketch and Stash

Sketch and Stash have a great sketch to follow this fortnight. My 'new' is my Alota Angels stamp. I purchased this some while ago (mainly for this coming year's Christmas cards). Having said that - it was my intention to make one Christmas card per week this year.
Total for January - 0, total for February - 1, and here it is! I coloured the image with watercolours - I didn't find it particularly easy to colour, but never do the first time.
IRL all the purples are the same tone, once my camera has been at them, they all look different, even under a daylight lamp. I struggle to photgraph both purples and reds. Does anyone else have this problem?


Materials
Basic cardstock - Bazzill : Image -Alota angels (no name) bought from Alota stamps : Watercolours - Rowney : Cuttlebug - Snowflake dots embossing folder and snowflake die : Rest from stash

Oh what a darling card Heather, I so love those little angela. Fab layout and gorgeous details. I believe you about the colours hun - it does my heed in big time cos the same thing happens to me. How can two items the identical colour IRL become totally different under the lamps? The mind boggles!!
