Thankful Colour Challenge

Hi there, 

I'm taking part in the Colour INKspiration Challenge again & these are the lovely colours the challenge has got for us: 


This is a Facebook Group but it is so inspiring to see all the creations pop up in one place, so I wanted to ink my Painted Harvest stamp set so I used these colours to create this alternative colour arrangement for the sunflower image: 


I really like the contrast with the Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise, I didn't think much of the Pool Party at first & then as soon as I stamped the Tempting Turquoise I was like WOAH!! That is amazing! Here is the card stood up: 



I hope you like it & thanks for popping by,

Hi there,

The Oh so eclectic stamp is so versatile, especially for showing you care & are thinking about those who have lost loved ones. 

I hope you will check out the others in this hop, by popping over to Kylie's Blog where you a for your fave.

You're Just Lovely - High Tide

Hi there, 

I've not blogged in a while, but I've been busy creating & the next week or so is going to be jam packed with some lovely posts. 

I was inspired by the Global Design Project's Colour challenge, I find it really hard to stick to 3 colours so this was indeed a challenge, here is the inspiration from the GDP team: 


So I had the colours, but did I know where to start - not the foggiest!! I knew I wanted to use the High Tide stamp set as to be honest I've not inked it much!! So then I found the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week: 

Which inspired me to create the following: 


Here is a close up: 


I like the angle of this picture I took, I think it makes the lighthouse & the birds in the sun pop, what do you think?: 

I really liked creating this project & it was nice to use colours in a way that is not normally intended - like a flirty flamingo sun - makes it look like it is just before dusk. The colours really complement each other. 

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you pop back soon,

Bright Garden in Blooms

Hi there,

I couldn't resist taking part in the Fab Friday's challenge, here is the colour inspiration: 


I really wanted to use the floral designer series paper in the new in colours & this challenge incorporated 2 of them so I had to use both!! I wanted to ink up some old stamp sets, as with a new catalogue it's so easy to get sucked into using new all the time. So here is what I created: 


I loved the colours & used the Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango to create the lovely big blooms & then I used Berry Burst for the small rose flower. I stamped it off a few times so that I just used the one colour for that flower - 3 steps for that stamp set. A close up of the card: 


I couldn't resist adding some new bling, so used the gold faceted gems for my pollen. A closer image of the stamped flowers:


I really loved making this card & my class attendees really enjoyed doing it too. Even if they did have slight issues with doing the bow in the black twine! They persisted though! 

Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping,
