Curtain Call Colour Challenge: Act 38

Oops, another hiccup with the scheduling- doh!!!!
Welcome back for another week of fun with the Curtain Call Colour ChallengeAct 38 has an unusual mix of colours Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla, a colour combination that I don't think I would have used in my wildest dreams!!  Having put them all together and had a play, I really love all these colours together- what a difference a week makes-lol!!!   Isn't the bouquet of flowers just beautiful- very springy!

A BIG thank you to all who replied last week to my call for 'Ribbon Help', I have some great ideas and tips for the next time I try to give scrunched ribbon a whirl, if all else fails I will pull out the sewing machine as Melissa suggested and then it won't move an inch!!!  thanks again-mwah!

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky! Stacey will be awarding one creation with "The Lead" and 5 creations for the "Top 5 show stopper", qualifying to adorn your blog with the badges and share the news with all!!
As always, if you would like some inspiration to get you started with these colours you can head over to the Design Team members blogs to check out their impressive creations and our illustrious leader  Stacey, will have a beautiful creation to get you going too! 
Remember we also have the very talented Silke joining us for the month of July, another impressive place to visit!

Shelley Germann said...

Wow! Two really great cards! I had talked myself out of these stamps...I think I may have to reconsider! I am amazed how well your impressions come out. It seems I always get a uninked matter how hard I try! And I do condition my stamps before I use them. SIGH.
