A Lorra Lorra Colour


Here's my take on Colour Q's challenge #15. I have to say when I first sat down to have a play with this combination, my first thought was, blimey that's a lot of colour to incorporate into one kinda small card. However, once I found some matching papers and ink in my stash, it all seemed to fit in place and my concern quickly faded away.

It's made all from my scrap box (do I ever make cards from a fresh 12x12 these days? Hardly ever). I also put my cuttlebug to good use, with an embossing folder and nesties die. And I used a stamp for the first time from the Chatsworth set of stamps I bought a few weeks ago. So I'm pleased to see myself making use of what I have instead of it gathering dust whilst I purchase more.

And on that subject, I will take a moment to congratulate both Karen & Michele for a massive purging. I know I don't have the courage they certainly do when it comes to Spring Cleaning stash. I admire anyone who's felt the huge relief from simplifying their life. And yes, I took home a good amount of their purged paper but I didn't buy it - so it still counts. Oh yes it does! lol.

Gorgeous! Love the combination of the cool blue and green mixed with the warm orange. Glad that our purged paper has gone to a good home - looking forward to seeing it used, instead of being sat in a box :)
