Ink Stamp Share – September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog this afternoon… Today I’m hopping with a whole host of crafters from all over the world.

Please be sure to pay them all a visit and leave some encouraging comments!

How can I resist a colour challenge! The hop this month is challenging creators to use this gorgeous palette!

I decided to work with florals. One of favourite bundles this year is Flowers of Friendship… Perfect for this challenge.

The subtle Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam provided a soft back drop to the deeper colours I used as the focal point of the card.

Wink of Stella glitter and basic rhinestones add some sparkle too.

This was my original sample as another idea of how these colours can be used together.

Monday Colour Challenge with Delicate Petals

Hello Everyone,

For this week’s Monday Colour Challenge I am working with;

  • Merry Merlot
  • Mint Macaron
  • Pacific Point

The Delicate Petals was on my desk to use again before it retires. I haven’t seen many samples using this set online either, which is such a pity. I think it is a lovely set.

I have layered the pieces together to create a dimensional floral embellishment .

The Double Oval punch was perfectly sized to cut the sentiment.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The background stamp is easy to line up as it is photopolymer. I love how this lines up to create a full circle.

Which is your favourite?
