Port Sunlight Goodies

Hi and welcome to a late night scheduled post to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
This week it is our Anything Goes challenge.

Here is my inspiration card for you based on a couple of ongoing challenges.

I used a couple of my recent purchases from my trip to the stamping festival at Port Sunlight, from Uniko and Altenew. I was rather peeved at first when the one stall I really wanted to visit was absent due to illness but I did find a fab new one to me where I managed to get a couple of Altenew sets and some dies so it wasn't all bad! I managed a sneek peek at the new release from Uniko before I left home, so Bev was next on my list to visit. I bought a couple of background stamps and the lovely lily  set but for this decided to use the Adore You for the flowers and the Halftone Background Blocks. 
I stamped the background in Memento London Fog and stamped and embossed in white on vellum and white card the leaves and flowers. The flowers I coloured with my Zig pens but I left the leaves plain before fussy cutting them out and arranging over the panel. The sentiment is from another PS purchase Altenew's Extra Special stamped in the same grey and embossed in clear EP on a little strip and placed under the flowers. 
For more inspiration please pop along to the blog and check out the rest of the DT.

I'd like to join in over at:-
