Week 118 Colour

Happy May!
A new month and a new Sponsor!
We are delighted to have Karen from Acid Drops and Whatnots as our sponsor for May.
Lots of you may not have seen the wonderfully whimsical stamps produced by this fun new company. We are sure you'll love the humour and fabulous images.

This is what they say about themselves
Acid Drops & Whatnots is the brainchild of friends Karen and Niki,who between them have over 30 years experience in the craft industry as designers, teachers, retailers and demonstrators. Their stamps sets feature a cast of characters to suit all occasions, humorous and fun, slightly tart, never cruel but definitely not sweet. 

All our stamp sets are jam packed with images, quips, quotes and greetings providing excellent value for money. Designed to give you plenty of mix and match combinations within each set, the sets can be mixed and matched to give you an endless variety of card designs.

Our stamp sets are made in the UK from high grade photo polymer resin and are crystal clear and non yellowing. They are durable, tear resistant and have a naturally sticky back for good adhesion to clear stamp blocks and provide outstanding images. 
For our 
Colour Challenge 
This month we would like you to choose TWO opposite colours from this Colour Wheel

My first card uses the colours Yellow-Green and Violet-Red and I have kept it very simple with a bright card base and a simple sentiment from Penny Black (Friendship T for Transparent).  The Butterfly is from Memory Box and the papers Stampin Up

My second card uses Violet and Yellow and some fabulous polka washi tape... The die is also from Memory Box and the sentiment from Stampin Up.  I've added some stitching with my machine too.

My first card uses stamps from Acid Drops and Whatnots' One out of Three Stamp set and the opposite colours Blue-Violet and Orange.
She's quite a cheeky lady here, as I chose to colour her as though she is wearing stockings and no drawers. She can of course be coloured as though she is wearing Harvest Festivals...ie large knickers, (where all is safely gathered in) and no stockings! She struck me as the type of character who just might have orange hair too!

My second card uses the colours Violet  and Yellow Green.
The stamp is from Rubber Stampede coloured with SU Markers before stamping and the background is also a stamp from Stampin' Up, now retired. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes.
