Some more from Black, Pumpkin, Rose & Green....

Well, I've actually taken quite a 'love' for the colours from Kristina's colour challenge after all. You will notice I've toned down on the green.

This first card is a 'long card', measuring 20cm x 10.5cm. Base is Pumpkin Pie and I've used the delightful 'Unfrogettable' stamp set. The frog has been stamped onto watercolour paper and I've coloured in with SU markers and my aqua painter. I love this technique - very quick and it has a nice effect. The base of card has been wheeled with the 'Spot On' stampin' wheel. I've also used some of my new orange striped ribbon onto of the Rose Red strip of cardstock. On the black cardstock, I've paper pierced around the edge; unfortunatley, the photo does not pick this up being a dark colour.
This next card is a smaller square card, simply layering the different colour cardstock. The stamp set is Garden Whimsy. The butterflies have been inked in Pumpkin Pie and then 'rock'n'rolled' into Rose Red. And I've added some spots of glitter for some extra sparkle.
This card is a 'note card' (had to give one of these a go). The Whisper White cardstock is the note which slips between the strip across the card. This was heaps of fun and I think I'll be making more of these soon. I've used stamps from Wild about You, so it's a great kids card. And I've used that lovely orange striped ribbon again.
And I've also done a scrapbook layout 8x8 size, to add to my album. The base is black and I've layered strips of the different colours up the top. Stamp set used is Enjoy from the new mini. It's such a great set for scrapbooking. The main word is enjoy and then is comes with smaller sayings, such as, 'every moment', 'life' and 'the little things'.

So there you have it, some creations that I've really enjoyed doing from the colour challenge.
