Addicted to Stamps and More #53

Hi everybody, and hello and welcome to new member, Maudieroff of Roffey Creations!

It's time for a new weekly challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This week it's a colour challenge and I'm sure you will agree, we have a lovely colour selection which can be used in so many ways.

Our fabulous sponsor is Melonheadz Illustrations who will be offering a prize to our Top Addict.

My DT card

I've used a little leafy stamp in green on the frame and a second stamping for the inner frame to achieve a softer, "faded" look. I had quite a few goes at this before I got it right and just when I felt I'd got it right, I put the stamp ink side down on it by mistake and had to do it again, quite a few diecuts going in the bin!

The flower was stamped twice, once pink on pink card and once pink on white for the centre. The leaf was stamped twice green ink on green card and cut out. All stamps from Folk Art set by Waltzingmouse. Am enjoying using this set as it's so versatile both for pattern-building and for individual elements. 

I've also taken inspiration from the Fusion sketch.

Don't forget to pop over to the ATSM challenge blog and check out all the fabulous colour inspiration from the other DT members.

Thanks so much for looking and we hope you've been inspired to join in the fun!
