Well, most of my stash is back where it belongs so I've been able to have a little crafty time tonight.
I wanted to do a colour challenge so I chose to enter this week's challenge at Colour Me, before the deadline tomorrow.
Here is my card...
and here is the colour palette for the challenge...
I chose to use a wooden stamp I've owned FOREVER, this was one of the first stamps I ever bought. I stamped with VersaMark and then heat embossed in black. I then started colouring in the different sections created by the scribble design with ProMarkers. The coloured panel was matted on some black cardstock and I finished the card off by adhering the 'happy' which was die cut from some gold cardstock, some sequins and stamping the 'birthday' sentiment. I originally left some of the sections white which I think looked better but the gold die cut 'happy' became lost against the busy background so I continued to colour it completely.
- Stamps: Hero Arts - Scribble Background (wood mounted); Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes
- Ink: VersaMark; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - Black
- Dies: Clearly Besotted - Happy Word Die; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Rectangles Large

Thanks for popping by. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to normal now that my craft stash is back where it should be.
I've had a lovely week off work, just doing things locally but we were so lucky with the glorious weather. Back to work tomorrow so it will be an early(ish) night for me now.
