Colour challenge take 2!

Back again, I got to make another card for Keesh's colour challenge this afternoon-YAY! This time I got the colours right & used vanilla instead of white.

It's not a good photo but the weather is very grey & overcast here today. Not to mention the awful dust storms, but we did get 4 mm rain so that should settle the dust! I used my "new" Natural Beauty stamp set (see last post) & my leafy branch cuttlebug folder. I found a button in the stash that is very much sage shadow(not that it looks it in this photo) and I punched my Florentine edge punch top & bottom of the choc chip piece. Oh & I roughed up the edges of the vanilla & rust squares.

Inkspiration colour challenge #7

This is a colour challenge from Makeesha Byl. I'm not a big fan of Really Rust but I am a fan of Makeesha's work so I thought I'd tough it out & have a go. Plus I needed a present for my Nanna's birthday & after playing around with this stamp set & colours, I thought a little stack of these would be nice for Nanna : ) I was at a Stampin' Up party the other day & Helen was practically giving away some of her old sets-I was lucky enough to have the first look in the bag & snavelled up this set "Mixed Bouquet" & also the "Natural Beauty" set. Lucky, Lucky! So, here are the colours & my card(s). I also used my Bouquet roller & versamark for the background & a bit of piercing along the bottom of the choc chip piece.

I got a bit excited about having ALL the colours for this challenge (I'm usually missing something!) In all my excitement I started madly stamping a piece of white card instead of vanilla-I'm going to make some more cards to go in with Nanna's stack of cards & will definately use vanilla! I just might get my "new" Natural Beauty set inky for the next lot....stay tuned!
