ATSM Challenge #63 - Colours

Hi there everyone, I hope you are all well. I certainly AM. Back home now, safe and sound and back to usual. I am now feeling 100% better and thank you all for your good wishes.

We have a challenge starting right now over at Addicted to Stamps and More! and I hope you will be able to join in.

We have a colour challenge for you this week -

We have used Stampin' Up! colours as a reference but you can use whatever is closest in your stash.

Here is my DT card -

I have used some new things from my stash today. Thanks to Phillipa (stalker no.1), I now have some Real Red cardstock. I have used that for the base (obviously, duh) and the love hearts which are dies from my Hearts a Flutter Framelits. I have outlined them with a white gel pen. My other new addition is the DSP from the Season of Style paper stack. 

I'm loving my new background stamp which I inked up with Baked Sugar and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I first stamped it onto a scrap piece of paper and then onto the panel so it didn't overpower the whole design.

The little embellishment that is secured with the Hemp Twine is from my mum's stash so I'm not sure what it is called. Whenever I go back home, mum and I swap goodies and add to our collection that way.

So, over at ATSM we have a wonderful sponsor for you this week -

The prize will be a $25 gift voucher to their store!

I hope you will join in with us. Check out the wonderful projects from the rest of the DT at ATSM.

Thanks so much for looking xx
