LIM -Thanks

Afternoon all.
The sun has just come out, yeah. It's been a foul day but I managed to take Max out between the showers. It's also given me more chance to craft 'cos I can't play outside in the garden. Well if I can't be in the garden why not bring the garden inside. 
Now don't say you haven't done it, bought a stamp you liked then not had a clue what to do with it. Well I bought a Woodware stamp 'Fushia Spray ages ago'. I got it 'cos I love to see fushias, they look great in the summer, flowing out of a hanging basket, all blousey and bright but in retrospect it is a bit OTT when used as a whole. Then with the latest LIM one layer challenge and Addicted to CAS -Over the edge I at last had a reason to use it!

The same stamp but 2 different colourways stamped off the page. The greeting on the right hand card is from the same set the left is from LOTV. I like the layout of the right better but as the cue for LIM this week is Thank You, this is the best greeting stamp I have. The image was coloured with Copics as follows:-
Red - R32,35,37,39
White - C0,3,5, blender
Pink - RV000,02,04,06 V01,C1
Lilac - V01,04,05,06
Green - YG61,63,67,G28

I shall enter the following challenges:-
Less is More - One layer Thank you
Addicted to CAS - Off the Edge
Crafty Little Fairies - In the Garden

Thanks for popping by, come back soon.

  12. Simply stunning, Julie! Both of them. You remind me that I have a similar fuchsia stamp that looks so pretty, but I haven't really been able to make it look great on a card. Off the edge might be just the perfect answer, so I am very thankful for the inspiration!! Thank you, too, for joining the challenge at ATCAS! Hugs, Darnell
