Red hot oh and yellow and orange!


Its scorchio! Which to me is of course fantastico!

Now in relation to this the latest challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge - where yours truly is Guest designer - have a new challenge happening which is red, yellow and orange. This theme chosen by the talented Kaz She obviously knew this week was going to be lovely! In which case I want to know she doesn't do all the challenges! You know something like 'balmy warm days', 'perfect weather for sitting in the garden' themes. Maybe you'd like to give it a whirl Kaz?

This is what Kaz had to say;

"When I took this week for my challenge back in the winter, I thought it would be lovely and summery so I decided to set a colour challenge using the sizzling colours of red, yellow and orange. I should have known better really as I do, after all, live in England. It's been positively Autumnal this month. Rain, wind and grey skies. Yuk. So I'd like you to help us entice the sunshine back to help warm my cold toes!!"

This challenge runs till 9 August at 5.00pm eastern time and its Stampotique stamps only, the lucky winner gets $30 to spend in store!

Anyway here's my entry - late I'm ashamed to say ~hangs head and pokes chair with foot' Not entirely my fault - the card was made then I did a favour with my camera..... Anyway its photo'd now.

Now this is a bit different for me... actually its a lot different! No flowers on it for a start!!! I know how weird is that?

So I stamped this lovely 'Daniels hearts' stamp and swiped Copics over the details, then cut it out with a Spellbinder heart, made a heart border, added paper lace cur out a few hearts to spill out and stamped 'mwah' and it was done!

Oh and look an arty shot! I stuck the little cut out hearts on a blob (technical term) of pinflair glue gel to raise them up a touch.

So a bit different for me huh? Well when I saw the colours kaz picked I thought 'whoa! they aren't colours I ever use together!!!' But I rather like this card and the colours. I guess a shove out of our comfort zones is good for us really.

Ooh Net, yes hun, it is different for you - but it is still a Wow card and totally fabulous! Yuck to the weather, my tail has frizzed and my whiskers drooped. Bring on autumn (more nuts) with the fresher mornings and softer days. Sigh. Big hugs Sxxxx
