The Stamp Man - Anything goes with summer colours

Well the good news is my offer on a new house has been accepted.  Spent quite a bit of time on the telephone this morning getting things moving.   Now begins the task of sorting everything out here and seeing if there are things it is not necessary to take with me!   going to be busy, have also to take the IMPS out in the car to see how they might cope with the journey.

Still after all the excitement did manage to make a card my first in several days.   The Stamp Man challenge this fortnight is anything goes with Summer Colours.

Glossy card coloured with DI, rather than blend the colour it was at first dabbed on with makeup sponges and then smoothed out a little.   The stamp is from Aspects of Design Nautical set, the card was then cut with a nestie.   Green pearlised card makes up the next layer, the one below is orange card coloured with DI over Tim Holtz masks.   Three rows of green rick rac along the bottom and a sun charm top left.   I had intended to use blue but it just would not work so have used these hot colours instead.

Have a great week-end.

  13. And after all that excitement I've actually managed to make a comment on your blog after a long span of time - sorry, but I've been busy.

    Love the colour combo, much better in orange and green, blue would have just been too obvious!!!

    Hope the trip out with the IMPS goes well.
