Hot Sunny Colours at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Hello folks, well can you believe June is here already? Its been so cold here it certainly doesn't seem like summer but we're bringing you some sunshine with our new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'Hot Sunny Colours'. You don't have to make a vintage project to enter, just follow the challenge theme but we are a stamping challenge so no digistamps are allowed. Our lucky winner will receive a generous $20 voucher to spend at  Flonzcraft so its well worth playing along with us. If you need some sunny inspiration pop over and check out my teamies beautiful projects.

For my DT card I've used 'Girl on a Windy Hill' from Flonzcraft, stamped with distress ink and coloured with Derwent pencils. I die cut the image with a spellbinders die and distressed the edges with scattered straw distress ink.

I made the background using various shades of yellow and orange distress ink, splodged on my craft mat and misted with water before swooshing my card through the inky mess. I added faux stitching with a White Graph'It Shake pen and then to finish off I've used ribbon, lace, paper flowers, a metal butterfly embossed with shabby White Frantage powder, some faux pearls and a couple of die cut swirls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy: fun in the sun
Inky Impressions: ribbon/lace
Little Claire's: Out doors
Paper Shelter: flower power
Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge: anything goes/ bright and colourful

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon

  2. The year does seem to have flown by so far Claire and we don't seem to have had the hoped for Spring weather as yet, well certainly not here in the Fens. Keeping it all crossed June will change all that.

    Your pretty card certainly captures the essence of hot sunny colours and the image is one of my fav's from Flonz.

  3. It's a lovely image from Flonzcraft and I love the lace and flower arrangement you've chosen to set it off. Gorgeous!

  4. These really are hot sunny colours Claire on a beautiful card.

    For some reason your card didn't load so I have taken the image from here to add to the challenge. Thanks sweets.
