The Colour Room #17

Thought I better get a move on for August Challenges.  I have become so addicted that I have to pace myself to get them all done.  First up is TCR#17.  This was a bit out of my comfort zone as I do prefer brighter colour palettes.  Had a struggle trying to find pp's, then I came across the Basic Grey Wisteria pp and I knew I had to use this on my LO.  I ended up using some older Basic Grey Porcelain & Lily Kate and the Basics for the background & a bit of Websters for the corner of the frame.  Did a bit of hand cutting on this LO as it's one of my favourite things at the moment.   The clear frame overlay and rubons are from MME.  Finished with a touch of lace and some pearls.

KIU - August Challenge

This month at KIU you had to use Kraft of course and the colours green, yellow and black.  Had fun with paint and stamps on this LO.  Decided to use the bubble wrap with black paint for background with a few random dots of green.  I then painted some chipboard numbers in yellow and stamped over the top with an Inque Boutique stamp.  The green circles are from a Prima pp which I splattered with paint, attached some Scrapmatts cogs then topped off with yellow punched circles with little Kaisercraft rubons.  I stamped around the edges of my LO  and around the  green pp with Technique Tuesday Borderline Industry stamp set.  This is a fabulous grungy male stamp set.  As they title is "You at 16" I used the same chip numbers for the 16 and covered them with Prima foiled pp then outlined in black to make them stand out.

Thanks for stopping by :)
