There's another fabulous colour palette and inspiration photo at the ColourQ challenge this week and I couldn't wait to get crafting! Come and see:
The frame in the inspiration picture gave me the perfect opportunity to bring out my new Filmstrip stamp - and wow! I love it to bits! Whether it's used to actually frame images or just used as part of an abstract background as it is here, I can see this is going to be a useful addition to my Craft Square Metre!
I started by stamping the swirl from Everything Eleanor and heat embossing it with clear powder. I love the way you can emboss directly on the ink with the new ink pads - if you're quick! The film strip was stamped next and then the background stripes from Gorgeous Grunge (I can't get enough of that amazing set!)
The decorative tab is made with a piece of scored card stock punched with the decorative label and folded nice and sharply with a bone folder. I put three colours of bakers twine together, stapled them to the label and tied them into a bow.
Isn't this sentiment beautiful? I love the shape it makes and how hand-doodled it looks. It comes from Chalk Talk, another brilliant new stamp set I can't wait to showcase for you!
This is the palette and inspiration photo I was working from today.

I've been enjoying the heatwave this week but I hear that the temperatures are easing off for the weekend. I know the garden will be glad of that and my furry friend might be too...
Honestly Tuppence, I think you can find a slightly larger area of shade somewhere in the garden!
Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
