Fussy and Fancy Challenge #139 Lavender and Yellow

Lavender and Yellow these are such lovely zingy colours to work with even for someone like me who is usually more comfortable working with girly pastel shades. So the lovely Diane is hosting this challenge and the  sponsors are Sweet Lilac Flowers and  Freshly Brewed Designs.

I went back to an all time favourite stamp Indigoblu's Summer Lovin' stamp, it is so lovely to work with, it's a collage stamp so I stamped it several times using Stazon Royal Purple. Then I set about making my background paper ... a plain  piece of white card can easily be transformed into a background paper. I used Squeezed Lemon distress ink and a blending tool for my base colour, then using Milled Lavender distress ink (second generation ... stamped first onto a scrap of paper to give a fainter image) I used unmounted stamps, without a block ... (Indigoblu, script and mesh) randomly to form background ... then using the collage stamp again I stamped random section of the stamp using slightly darker Dusky Concorde distress ink.
I decoupaged some of the flowers on the main image and then used the rest of the flowers together with some diecut swirls to embellish my card. I was quite pleased with the result and I know a person who would appreciate these zingy colours on her birthday card.
Right it's lunchtime and Husband has kindly made us a snack so I better not keep the chef waiting. Please enter this challenge it's so  easy to do ... more details here  then the fussy and fancy girls can get to view your blog and email entries. As the winners are randomly chosen it is very fair whether you are a beginner or an experienced crafter you have an equal chance of being a winner.
Bye for now and crafty hugs, Annie xxx
