A colour challenge!

Quizer and Mervynboy by Daniel Torrente
Splatter long and Abstract Foliage by Jo Capper-Sandon
Sentiment by Carol's Collection
Dylusions ink sprays in Crushed Grape and Bubblegum Pink

It's the Stampotique Designers Challenge time, and this time Nellie has set us a colour chllenge. I just LOVE a colour challenge!

Here's what Nellie has to say:
I picked a color combination that I really love to work with - pink, purple and black. It’s as simple as that! So go get your Stampotique stamps out and have fun with this challenge.

For this challenge I decided to make a mini-tag concertina book inspired by the wonderful Dina Wakley (who just so happens to be the guest designer for Stampotique this month!)


I used some of the *new* stamps by Daniel Torrente - These gorgeous little boys are small and cute in an ugly kind of way LOL!



I also used some of my favourites by Jo Capper-Sandon to add a bit of texture to my background. Abstract Foliage is my latest must-have for building up a background :-)

I used some of the gorgeous *new* Dylusions ink sprays to make my background. These are now part of the collection for Ranger and will be in at Art from the Heart at the end of February so you haven't got long to wait! YAY!!

So have some inky fun and join us on this wonderful colour challenge. Have a look at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog here for all the details - you may even win a $30 Stampotique gift certificate for entering the challenge!

Thanks soooo much to you all who left me a lovely comment on my previous post. You have until Saturday to enter my give-away if you haven't done so already. Byeeee for now ...

  4. Hiya Kate.
    Gorgeous tags with a great colour choice. Those little "Boys" are really cute (in a wicked way!) and the backgrounds are lovely.
    Can't wait to see all the lovely new things at Dyan's, thought I might have seen a bit more of her on QVC but the craft day on there is always manic and Tim did at least get some good air time.
