Colour Challenge 167 - SCS

When I saw the Colour Challenge for this week at Splitcoast Stampers, I had to give it a go. Such a great colour combination.
So the colours are: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou & Certain Celery
And here is my card. I've used the Garden Whimsy stamp set, one of my favourites. The butterfly has been inked in Soft Sky, then I've rolled the edges into the ink pad of Blue Bayou. The butterfly also has some sparkle added - glue pen & Dazzling Diamond glitter.

While I was on a roll, I saw a black & white photo of the boys, waiting to be scrapbooked. So I've come up with this layout. I've used the Garden Whimsy set again, and also Boho Backgrounds. For this layout I've used textured cardstock in Soft Sky and also some Certain Celery DP. I was happy how this one turned out and it came together so quickly. Always good when that happens; motivation to keep going.

Hope to share more with you soon. Enjoy the weekend and keep dry and warm. (A bit like winter down in Busso)

Unusual colour combination but it works really well doesn't it. I'm starting to think I may have to join stampinup just for scrapbooking purposes. Your pages always look gorgeous as ever.

Hi Chantelle,
Love the card and the scrapbook page - gorgeous colours!
I've been taking photos of the cards I make - how do you get the colours so good? I had a 'taken with teal' colour card and on the photo it looks a funny sort of blue, didn't do justice at all. Tried flash, no flash, all sorts! Any handy hints?
Luv Sandra

Dear Chantelle
Your card and scrapbook page look absolutely gorgious. Beautiful colour combination. The page layout is so beautiful, I really love it, and such beautiful black and white photo of the boys. It all just looks perfect. I did not realize that you can stamp on the textured card stock.
I thought it was only used for matting.
