Red, black + 1

Just a couple of cards I made today both using red, black and one other colour.

This first one is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #140 to use the out of the box technique. As I had already stamped and coloured in about 10 Kraftin' Kimmie images the other day, I picked one which had just enough space round to do this technique and used the fabulous new Marilyn stamp. I picked the colour combo based on the colours I had already used and dug out some old retired DSP as well to try and diminish that mountain as well. I added lots of bling for the twinkle in the sentiment as well.

And my next card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #212 to use these gorgeous colours. I found this challenge blog whilst browsing on Pinterest and the technique I used for the stacked stamping I also found through Pinterest, but you can read the tutorial here on Tanya Bell's blog: http://stampingt.com.au/blog/?p=4045  This is such a fab technique and I know I'll definitely be using this one again.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
