The Paper Players colour challenge 503

 Two posts in two days!  

That's very unusual for my much neglected blog.

However, I noticed a colour challenge over at 

The Paper Players using Magenta; one of my favourite colours and I just had to have a play.

During the CV limitations, I've challenged myself to use stamps, stencils and techniques that I've neglected over the past couple of years so I fished out a stamp set which has not seen the light of day, for years.

It's from Stamping' Up, "Flower Shop"

I stamped the flowers on vellum and embossed them with White embossing powder before coloring them from the back with various Distress Oxides.

The background was dry embossed with Couture Creations, "Swiss Dots"

The stems were die cut in navy from two different 

Tim Holtz die sets, 664163 &661808

I appreciate you calling in; thank you.


  1. Oh it is good to see you are scrapping! I think my mojo is in lockdown... on the other side of the world! I have not sat at my desk to scrap yet this month... oh dear.. I am hoping it changes soon.. I dont like not even feeling like scrapping... perhaps I can find some inspiration soon... I do love your card, I love the flowers and the dot embossing is one of my favs.. Stay safe and well and keep scrapping!!
