It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:
I think this stamp set - Southern Serenade - is the retiring stamp set that I'm going to miss most. I had to give it one last spin before it's gone forever. The flowers are so pretty, and easy to colour, and I just love the lacy background stamp. I've also used the sentiments in this set to death. They seem to fit perfectly on just about every card I make, and work really well in circle punches too. For some extra 'oomph', I cut out 3 of the flowers for this card, and raised them on mini dimensionals. I used Blender Pens and ink to colour them.
My background piece is from the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. I ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder. This is also retiring, so grab it while you can. To really bring out the design, I gently swiped it with my Whisper White Craft ink pad.
The finishing touch is some Braided Linen Trim...happily this is hanging around, and will be in our new Catalogue!
I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page
