Another colour challenge.


Look at these yummy colours, don't they remind you of spring!! I couldn't resist playing along with this challenge at CR84FN and using two new stamps that I have just received.




































I found it quite hard to photograph this card so that you could see the embossed background, I have this new powder called "White Pearls" and I love the shimmery effect it gives.  The main image is stamped and embossed with white powder and then coloured with distress inks.  Quite a simple card but I am pleased with the result.

Back to work today after a week off and it has come hard, I am missing my crafting time :0(

Supplies Hero Arts Stamps. CG245 Classic Fabric, CG271Large Blossom. Distress inks. Bundled Sage, Worn Lipstick and Barn Door.
