One - for two ....

... unexpectedly, I managed to get a couple of hours in my craft room this evening and so I've made this card for two challenges.  The first is the colour challenge at Colour Q - cQc107 and the second is One Layer Wednesday - OLW69, this week being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.  Jennifer want us to use stripes on our card.


I really like these colours and I've just got the new "in-colours" so I can play with all the colours!  Yea!!  I've made a really simple card - I found some love stitch style stamps in my stash - I can't remember the last time these saw ink, so I decided to play with them.  I simply stamped each colour in a different stitch and then added the sentiment - a bit punny, but fun!



Stamps:  Hot off the Press - Stitch stamps; Waltzingmouse - Sewing Box Hugs
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Card from stash

Jonathan and I have just watched the first episode in Season 2 of The Walking Dead - it was brilliant!!!  Rather gory, but excellent.  And I think it's now time for bed.  I'm so pleased that I managed to get a card made after all.  That really is all for this evening - see you tomorrow!

Oh, I love this. It's sew clever! (sorry, I couldn't resist) What a great idea. You have reminded me that I have a similar set, that I should play with. I love how you took what I thought of as Halloween colors, and did something totally different.
