Sharing Some Colour Challenges on a Sunday

Just a few mixed cards I quickly made this morning for a few challenges, all using a different colour challenge.

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #118, Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #3 to use only 5 words in your sentiment, F4A137 to use a rosette and for Play Date Café's Challenge #152 to use these fab colours.


And here's my card. I'm not sure about the ribbon but I stuck it all down before changing my mind about it, so it's stuck on there now!

My next card baffled me for a while - I couldn't think of anything to do with this colour challenge, but kept coming back to it again and again. I went through a different box of stamps and found an absolute ton of sets I had completely forgotten about - loads of Taylored Expressions, Rubbernecker, Clear Art Stamps and Elzybells amongst other odd ones. I tell you I have too many stamps to remember what I have! I pulled out these little fishes by Rubbernecker that I don't believe I have ever inked up before - tut tut!!! Anyway this card is for Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #179 (with slight adaptations to fit the size of the stamp, which was masked off anyway as it was HUGE!), Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #1B to make a kids card and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #212 to use these colours.


And here's my card.

And my final card was another one that baffled me, only because I just couldn't decide which flower stamp to use and then after doing all the stamping I covered most of it up anyway, so shouldn't have bothered LOL. This one is for Mojo Monday's Challenge #261 for the sketch, Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #5 to make a card to inspire courage or strength, Make It Monday's Challenge #85 to use glittered tags and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #144 to use these bright colours.


And here's my card.

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