Hello everyone on the day of the Royal Wedding and I'm hoping this post pops up on time as I'll still be in bed having returned from our break in Jersey around 3am.
It's Friday and time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles. Your hostess this week is Enfys and she's chosen a colour theme of Blue, Aqua and Purple.
I had a bit of a struggle with this as our printer has thrown a wobbly and keeps printing things out the wrong colour. I had to rummage in my stash of Polka Doodles bits and managed to find a few pieces in the right colours but had to improvise as you'll see.
As I only had bits and pieces, I decided on a striped background using papers from the Sundae of Seasons CD apart from the purple floral one which is from All Around & Everywhere.
I arranged the strips in a repeat pattern on an 8 x 8 card blank.
The background is quite busy so I opted for simple additions. These being a central border of pale blue with a sentiment border from the Not For Girls CD. I added a butterfly from the Inkadinkado Garden Delights clear stamp set, stamped with VersaFine Imperial Purple ink and coloured with an Amethyst Promarker. I cut the image out and set it on a circular mat of pale blue card embossed with the Quickutz Retro Diamonds folder on a further scalloped mat of purple card.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 8 May to enter and good luck!
I'm also entering my card in the following challenges:
CCEE Stampers - Add A Butterfly
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Winged Things
Thanks for looking,
