A Colour Challenge and more Stamp Kissing!!


Look at this colour swatch isn't it yummy, I love chocolate and pink together so I had to have a go at this challenge! Visit CR84FN's blog this week to see some amazing inspiration.

  The only brown card I had isn't really dark enough to be called chocolate but it is brown!  I have run this through the dots embossing folder to give it some texture. This card has my two favourite elements on it "Butterflies and Flowers"  you can't go wrong with those!! and I have used my new cling stamp Canvas Stripes I am sure you will be seeing alot more of this stamp I love it and its suitable for masculine cards!
I have also had another go at "Stamp Kissing" this months challenge at the Hero Arts Blog  this time using the Row of Houses stamp. I have used an old multicoloured ink pad from Tsukineko that I have had for years and then kissed the houses with the Antique Brocade stamp. I then clear embossed this.
I then distressed with Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass.  The bottom section is from my scrap basket, I have lots of pieces like this left from experimenting with different backgrounds.
Hope you are having a good week, its my day off today and there is always lots to do.  Maybe I can get some crafting in later! :0)
