CQC285 - Thank You


I couldn't resist playing with the bold bright colours at the current Colour Q challenge. They are so much fun!



I love the look of tone on tone stamping - Tracey and Lynn do it a lot and I always think that I should really give it a try. You have to get your stamps really inked up - cardstock stamps differently than the  (coated and smooth) Whisper White and Gina K Pure Luxury that I usually stamp on. I used Simon Says Stamp Floral Bookmarking with matching dies and a Paper Sushi sentiment, stamped in Soft Suede. I used my MFT Pierced Rectangles to give the white panel a finished edge and a dot of Glossy Accents for the flower centres.
