FSC Colour Challenge

Good morning friends and passers by.

Before I start today's post, I'd like to welcome my three newest followers........Carol and Jenny and Anja, thank you for joining me on my crafting journey :) x

It's time for a new challenge over at 'Fashionable Stamping Challenges' and this month's theme was chosen by our lovely Shirley.   Shirley's opted for a colour challenge this time and her chosen colours are yellow, blue and white, so here's the card that I've made:

I started by using a stencil over white card to give a blue and white background. I used a tiny scroll stamp around the edge to create the border and I used the same stamp to create an oval border around my main focal image.

The female image is a gorgeous Gibson Girl stamp by Flonz Craft which I stamped onto white card.  I then masked the image and used Ink Dusters to colour yellow around her.

The sentiment that I've used is by Inkylicious and I think it works really well with this Gibson Girl image as she does look a little sad and the sentiment is quite uplifting.

Here's a picture of the things used to create my card.  Unfortunately, I've missed off the Spellbinder's
Delicate Aster stamps and dies which I used to make my flowers:

Thank you for visiting today and I wish you all a peaceful and relaxing Sunday x

You make the most fabulous and creative backgrounds. I love 'reading' your blog because if you just saw your photo it looks like you've used paper. Such a beautiful vintage style and clever how you've incorporated the colours and as always your attention to detail is fabulous...thanks for the inspiration x
