Still using up my scraps, I used another of my turquoise/green/pink/blue backgrounds and layered some stamping onto it, along with a few touches of colour.  I’ve used Stazon this time because I’m determined to ‘use what I have’ and I have a lot of colours of Stazon I’ve never yet used.

I made the mistake of looking for a stamp today and of course, the inevitable happened.  I ended up with a pile of stamps I have every intention of using but no doubt will have to put away again because I won’t have the time.

The main stamps are Paperartsy.

I went into my stamp room to start journal pages and ATCs but of course I did neither – I really annoy myself at times!

Have a great week!

Ha ha Cath, the story is so familiar. can't count the number of times I go in to start something and end up surrounded with rubber. Beautiful card, and colours of course. Is the crackly background a Stamp Camp one?
Hope you have had a good weekend - mine h as been great, lots of crafting.

Beautiful colours together Cath and made into a fabulous card.
I feel as though I have been in the craft room most of the weekend but achieved very little. So annoying.

Fabulous colours, Cath! I love it! I have very little space on my desk at the moment as I too have got lots of stamps out with the intention of using them, but haven't yet! Two weeks till Easter break- can't wait!

Gráinne said...

Striking colors! I love the combination of these and how you used the stamps in the background.
I'd never have thought to use one of the paper artsy collage stamps - or any collage stamp - like this. I'm always thinking I'd be too limited with collage stamps but some of you are just able to use them perfectly! :-) I'm not ...

Beautiful pages! Love the soft colors - a bit pale, just like a day in march, before all the flowers come forward. Beautiful!
