Color Throwdown #407 - Guest Stamper

Hi Everyone. Today I have the pleasure of being Guest Stamper on the Color Throwdown Challenge Blog. I was chosen via random.org, to be the guest this week. Have a look at the gorgeous inspiration image and colours.




The colours and image are fresh and modern so I decided to keep the card fairly simple. At first, I focused in on the white jugs, and even created a jug file with cut pieces from the Silhouette. I will use them another time. Anyway, somewhere along the way I went from jugs to feathers.
The background has a light swoosh of Squeezed Lemon distress ink through this stencil.

Color Throwdown #405

Color Throwdown has yet another gorgeous image and colour combination. So inspiring!




When I saw the image I knew exactly which Stamp Set I would use. It's such a gorgeous set. I love the graphic flower shapes.
MFT have their Funky Flowers Set which, to me, has a similar feel to it. BUT, it is sold out........patiently waiting!

My Favorite Things Color Challenge #50

Hi everyone. This card is for the My Favorite Things Colour Challenge. Lovely harmonious colours.



I pulled out the MFT Abstract Art stamp set again. I have a love/hate relationship with this set. I love it, but have a mental block with how to use it.
After much thought and a bit of playing, I ended up using a Hero Arts Soft Grey dye ink, with three of the stamps from the set, for the background. I used the second generation print .
The flower is coloured with Copics.

Have a good day.
