Colour Week 166

It's a new month and that means a new Sponsor and a new colour challenge
It also means a new Designer!
Many of you commented on how nice it was to have Anne join in whilst Chrissie was on holiday and you said how much you enjoyed her comments, so she is now part of the team.
Welcome Anne!

Thank you too to Jan for all her hard work commenting on your entries for her Guest Designer spot last week!

This month our sponsor is The Ribbon Girl

The colour challenge this month is
A Touch Of Turquoise
Please remember to keep your submissions 
Rather a lot of layers have been creeping into submissions... so please don't forget to leave that 
in evidence.

For this week's card I used the Gorgeous Grunge set from Stampin' up and did some generation stamping in both tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo.  It's finished off with and embossed sentiment also from Stampin' up. 
I'm at Sincerely Yours show at Leigh (North West) demonstrating Die Cutting at The Craft Bug today if you are there make sure you pop over and say hello!

For my first card this week I have done a little emboss resist with shadow stamping.
I began by stamping the daisies with Versamark and clear embossing. I then sponged the background colour over it, then stamped the image again, slightly offset, using the same background colour. To make the white flowers pop, I simply cleaned the surface of them with a baby wipe.
Stamps from Stampin' Up.

This one was just using a scrap of card that I had been experimenting on with some new stamps from Visible Image. I thought it looked too nice to throw in the bin, so I die-cut a portion and added a tiny butterfly.
The sentiment is from Tattered Lace.
My first card was cut with my Portrait,  the sentiment is Simon Says Stamp
My second one was stamped using the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear, the sentiment stamp is by Different Colours,  I simply added some bling and some twine.

Anne and I will be going to Ally Pally on Sunday 13th April, so if any of you can manage to go too, just let us know, it would be great to meet up!
