Bombshell Stamps: Blog Hop Challenge: Colour challenge

Welcome to the Bombshell July blog hop

You should have arrived here from Alaine's Blog

If you haven't and need to get back on course the blog hop list is just below

I love Bombshell stamps.  So delightfully quirky, and glamorous.
I was lucky enough to win last month and chose Rise and Shine so decided to use her in my card.

The challenge over at Bombshell Stamps is a color challenge.
It's a color challenge! I love doing color challenges, you have the option to make anything with your fabulous Bombshell stamps, as long as you use at least 3 of the colors shown in the sample above. I found this beautiful color palette at Design Seeds. I don't expect your colors to be absolutely exact, but please try to be as close as possible. You are welcome to use all of the colors in the palette, but again you are only required to use 3. This is going to be a lot of fun!

Here is my entry.  The colours looked pretty accurate, I hope they were close enough.

and if you've made it this far, take a look at my disastrous first attempt.

On with the hop

Tiddly Inks Reel Me In - Challenge #57

This week over at tiddly inks  the challenge is

Let's get started with a general "Summer or Scary Movie". Pick a favorite movie and create a card around that theme.
Well I don't have many stamps to use and my printer refused to co operate so I have used
Stamping Bella Housework Fairy as she reminds me of Mrs Doubtfire ;)

I coloured her with copics, and matted her onto polka dot paper.
I embossed a plain sheet of toning paper with a cottage garden pattern.
Added a flower made with Tattered Florals die

Hope you like her :)


Kraftin' Kimmie #86 - Tag! You're IT!

Hey peeps,
This card was created for the challenge over at kraftin' kimmie stamps this week is
 we're going to play a game of TAG!!! You're IT! Haha! So you need to either create a tag or include a tag on your card! 

I decided to use Lilybelle as she fit so nicely on the tag.
I fancy cut around her and wickedly cut off her feelers. Then laid her on a tag which I covered with paper from Prima Sweet Fairy collection.
I glittered her up (including a sparkly new pair of feelers), and added glossy accents over some of the flowers.
Base card is also Prima Sweet Fairy.
Flowers and ribbon were from my stash :)

Hope you like her
