Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

I had seen all the gorgeous colour combinations for this month's challenge and had lots of ideas swirling around, however I didn't get to put stamp to paper until a couple of hours ago and this is what I came up with..
I stamped the background using Memento London Fog and then coloured all the flowers and leaves with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers in shocking pink, carmine, cerise, lime zest, lime green and chartreuse.
and here is the colour combination it was based on
I am in love with the Fancy Folk Art stamp set, it had been on my wish list for a while and I debated whether or not I would actually use it, three cards later and I am so glad I did. It is so much fun to colour, to create your own backgrounds and I just adore the style of the sentiments, I think it will be quite a versatile addition to my 'collection' ;)

Have a great day,

How Time Flies.....

My goodness, I didn't realise that I hadn't written a blog post in a while, I had better correct that tout suite!

Here are a couple of cards that were rejected for a recent submission call, fortunately I also had a couple picked up :)

 The pinwheels are made from vintage music paper and were sprinkled with perfect pearls and topped with gilded wooden stars.
Rosettes were made from vintage music paper using my silhouette, topped with vellum and glitter circles, gems and a handmade button.

I hope I can start to blog more regularly :)
