Sunday Stamper - Week 292 - Orange Crush

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy...erm.. Monday (!) to you all!  Big thanks for all the entries to last week's challenge and apologies that I haven't had chance to visit you all yet, life has a way of sending in a big old rock to climb over sometimes  but hopefully things are getting back to normal (soon!).  The new challenge for this week (and apologies for the late posting of the new theme - please see post below for the reason) is... ORANGE.   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something - it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come visit.  If you haven't got a blog, you can also join in via Facebook (just tag my name on your upload) or via email by attaching a small res. pic to the email.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 1st February 2014.  (Feb! Already!)



This week my entry is one of my sample cards from last weeks tv shows.  I love using lots of different masks and stencils on one project, layering the designs with different colours and making my own background papers.  Here I have used Eyetlet Lace, Chicken Wire and Small Polka Dot That Special Touch masks, colouring with Antique Linen, Broken China and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks to make a patterned design.   I stamped out lots of the Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur images, cut them out and coloured with the same Distress Inks, layering them all up and adding a splash of orange in the form of Spiced Marmalade Distress Glitter (did I say, I loves this stuff!) into the centres of the flowers.  A few little embellies half hidden behind the flower clusters adds some little bits and bobs of sparkles and I also added some flourishy bits using Jet Black Archival ink.


Sorry I am late posting the challenge - as I said, the internet access in the hotel this weekend was plain weird... it was an unsecured network and Lionel Laptop was having none of it.    I shall away now... busy day ahead!  Thanks for looking, have a good week folks... TTFN

Morning Hels, So glad that Lionel is now home and working beautifully.
Please give Graham's Dad our very Best Wishes for a speedy recovery, so glad he is now on the mend.
Your card is truly beautiful, loving all the inkiness in the background, the masks are amazing, and the metal embellies finish off this creation, beautifully.
Lots of love from Patricia cc
