Play until the sun goes down

I've been so busy with work just lately I've had very little time for crafting or blogging. I was feeling a little stir-crazy though so I made time for a bit of inkiness on Friday!

The current challenge in the Crafty Secrets member forum over at Splitcoast Stampers is being hosted by Cyntia and she's asked us to use orange on our projects.

I've made a sunset by sponging inks through a hole cut with a Nestie for these delightful silhouetted children to play in - even the dog is joining in and having fun before somebody shouts "Time for bed!"

The figures in this set are separate so you can change up the look of the group by putting them in a different order, repeating some or missing some out. I think it's a really sweet little set.

I added sparkle to the sunburst above their heads with a Spica pen.
