Sunday Slot

Running a bit late today so going to have to be quick.  Two cards today using the same layout from Freshly Made Sketches, but in different colour combos.

My first card is a traditional Christmas colour scheme and I had great fun stamping all over the background.  I love how these Uniko Studio stamps resemble a fair isle jumper pattern.

I got to wondering whether this idea would work with other background stamps and used the colours from Colour Q to try it out.  I love this colour combo and quite like the look of the card too.

Card 1:
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Jolly Christmas, All Occasion Sentiments #4, Background Builders Christmas
Inks: Memento, rhubarb stalk, cottage ivy, bamboo leaves
Embellishments: sequins from my stash

Card 2: Stamps, Flower Power #2, all Occasion Sentiments #2, Background Builders - Christmas, Flower Power & Chevrons
Inks: Memento, cantaloupe, tangelo, summer sky, rich cocoa

Thanks for dropping by today.
