My favourite colour

Good morning crafters.
Just slipping a post in to share the latest challenge at Fantasy Stampers with you before my Grandson arrives with his Mum and Dad. This time we would like to see your projects based around the theme of -


Mmm, tricky but I went with magenta as it reflects my colour scheme in the house, plus a little lime green! So here is my card for your inspiration.

Looking at the photo the gerberas look a little redder than in real life, perhaps its the kraft playing funny tricks!
This card uses one of my new stamps from Uniko which I got by winning their May challenge with this card here. I'd had my eye on them for awhile but couldn't in all honesty justify the purchase, so when I had the chance of a £20 voucher I jumped in and added them to my stash, along with a few more goodies!
I used the sketch from ShowCASe your style and the fab picture of gerberas at Fusion reminded me of this very stamp and the colour. As it's a Uniko stamp it would be churlish not to enter this months challenge(sorry no twist for me this time) and the colour scheme was further dictated by the challenge at CASual Fridays to use white, kraft and one bright colour. For this card I used Copics to colour and added some pearls coloured to match and a couple of strips of kraft embossed with a Sizzix ef.

OK, now it's over to you but please read the rules.
It is really sad when a fantastic card doesn't get any recognition 'cos it uses a digi or there is no stamping at all.

  1. Fab card Julie and great use of the gorgeous gerbera stamp set. Love your dramatic colour choices, in fact I have those very same gerberas in a vase on my kitchen windowsill at the moment. Thanks for playing at Uniko.

  2. What a stunning stamp, Jules - I can see why you wanted it for your stash. Great choice of colour too. Thanx for the heads up on my blog too (have rectified it now!) Lol.

  5. You've nailed all these challenges with your vibrant card, Jules! I love it! I also love that you used the word churlish. It's a word I never hear in this country and more's the pity, as it's a fun word to roll off your tongue! I hope your little finger is doing better! Hugs, Darnell
