Week 183 Colour Challenge

For our
Colour Challenge 
this month we have chosen to use one of the Colour Seeds inspiration pictures.

It reminds us of a mojito!

Today is Sarah's birthday!

It's not necessary to include every colour from the picture but we would like you to include a representative number of the colours, to give the feel of the palette.

Scraps of textured card stock cut with a Simon Says Stamp die, a couple of All Occasion birds added...  totally in love with this die!
For this card I assembled a few pieces of card and inks and ended up using a two step set from Stampin' Up (Hostess set, now retired). I used my Duplo corner as a stamp positioner in order to align the stamps. It works really well with a piece of clear packaging cut into a square.
I should be back from Spain later today and so hope to try to visit a few more people this week, sorry that I didn't get around to everyone this last week.


Sorry for my absence over last couple of weeks... A holiday to egypt then a weekend in holland for a friends birthday have taken me away from normality again!
My card this week uses doodlebug washi tape to give the striped back ground.  It's finished off with a die from Whimsy Stamps.
Sorry about the photos, I moved my studio earlier in the week and after having the fireplace fitted there is soot everywhere so can't use my normal photo area!


I felt that my 'Adapt a Finger print' cards
from a few weeks ago were a bit boring and I hadn't even considered
adding pen drawings to the inky prints ...
... so I decided to get myself all inked up AGAIN! 
Combining these great summery colours.
The sentiment is computer generated using 'Another Night out' 
and 'AR Bonnie' fonts.
