The lovely and talented Nellie is our host today over at the Stampotique Challenge blog and she wants us to use our favourite colours. This is what she said :
"No explanation needed for this week's challenge. I'm asking you to use your favourite colours. Use as many colours as you want to. I think we all have favourite colour combinations, , colours that always match, colours that work for us, colours we turn to when we lack a bit of inspiration. Mine are variations of green and blue. What are yours? Nellie"
I have several combinations that I really love but yellow/orange/pink must be my all time fave !!!
I made a postcard for her :
I coloured this card with Distress Inks and a blending tool. The colours I used were Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmelade, Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry. I used one of the circles from the "Circles cube" with gray Archival ink and "Ticket for Paris" with white ink to jazz up the background a bit. I used the gray Archival to distress the edges as well. I also splattered some water on it and after it was dry some India Ink. Next I stamped the "Barcode" at the bottom om the card and a bit of it on the right and at the top. The sentiment came form the "Barcode Text #2". I put the card aside and stamped "Romek" on white card stock, colours him and his balloons with Copic Markers, clear embossed him and placed him on double sided tape. I thought it might be easier to cut out and adhere to the card if I turned him into a sticker basically. And it was. I did stamp him on the card as well as I didn't want to attempt to cut the strings of the balloons out. Anyway that was that !
Here's a list of all the stamps I used:
Now, if you like to receive this postcard then leave me a comment below and I will draw a random winner on the 4th of November. Good luck !
