The Stamp Man - Use Bright Colours

It's Friday time to wind down another week.   With changes to my plans I guess this week-end will be another crafty one, after another electrician has been to give me a quote!

This Friday is time as well for the next challenge at The Stamp Man. As always there is a £10 voucher for the shop to be won and once again it is Jill who is hosting the challenge.   There were some amazing alter it projects to be seen over the last 2 weeks I really enjoyed visiting everyone.  This fortnight as Summer turns to Autumn we are focusing on Bright Colours.

Had a bit of a mishap with an ink pad and card recently, we have all done it and dropped the pad face down spoiling the card.  Perhaps not so spoiled this time it was 'dropped' a few more times over the card so that some of the marks peep out from under the dp.   The image is one that Jill gave me to use and shamefully I do not know which stamp set it is from!   The little Bee is also stocked by the Stamp Man and is a Magenta stamp.

Frantically trying to get things made before packing away all my inks stamps and tools a simple colouring with a little 3d was  a delightfully quick and easy make, which at the time was good news and at least it things have had a bit of a sort out.    People who join us at  The Stamp Man  Challenge always make the most of our themes and am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.  And have you seen what my teamies have produced? Sensational!

It's fun to look around and see if there are other challenge's a project fits into, a great way to discover new challenges and meet more crafters, here's what I found this time Celebrate the Occasion - include a bee in your project.   I've just checked out Amusing Challenge where they are looking for projects coloured with markers!


  1. Zoe this is so beautifully designed and the colours and embellishments work so well together. Lots of eye candy. Wishing you a fab Friday.

  2. It's a lovely card, and I know all about dropping things onto my work, or my work into the sink etc.
    The Bastet statue sitting here on my desk just winked at me, I think she wants to send greetings to you and your IMPS. Hugs, Valerie

  3. A great card Zoe and I love the bright colours

  4. Yes, I also like to combine the challenges, it makes you think about things in a different way. I love your project, it's so different from the other cards, too. Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs
