GC144 Gingersnap Colour Challenge



I made this straight away this morning when I saw that this was the final Rust, Copper, Ginger challenge over on Gingersnap Creations. Due to their amazing success and the hard work of Shar and the girls the site is now heading for Blogzine stardom and will no longer be in the form we are all used tobut will be moving to a new home at Unruly Paperarts. For details see here.




I can't believe its four years since the site was founded...FOUR YEARS!! Where did that go!!

I'd like to wish the Gingers all the best in the new venture...onwards and upwards!




To make this card I used a combination of...
Distress inks- Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey,
Versafine black,
Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist- Marigold,
tissue paper,
a crinkled poly bag,
white acrylic paint(cheapo kiddy sort),
kiddy pencils, (can you tell my sons art materials are still out following a homework task lol),
a stencil that has lots of different rectangles all over it(cant find the name sorry)
Stampers Anonymous Butterflies and Moths,
Memory Box 'Dream',
A letter 'B' sticker,
and ...finally...Stampotique's 'Swirl Stalk' and 'Splatter Long'.

Hope you like it and are all having a good week with all this sunshine!

Ooh, lovely, Jo - love the design and just the sort of thing I'm playing with at the moment. What goes around, comes around... seems like old times but I'm enjoying it x

Karen said...

Gorgeous! Your backgrounds must be the best, most delicious thing ever. They look so good, I can't believe they would be calorie free, allowed on airplanes, and carry no dangerous side effect warnings.
