Warm Sunshine Colours



Fresh back from my hols and time for another new challenge at Allsorts and his week it's my turn to be your host and I have the theme of "Warm Sunshine Colours', you know oranges, reds, yellow all those colours that remind us of hot summer days despite there not being too many of those in the UK since we came home. Our sponsors this weeks are QKR Stampede and Marianne Designs.

I used several colours of Dylusions to create the background and am quite happy how the colours intensified to give the sunshine appearance, you never can be sure as no two background are the same even using the same colours. I sponged sunrays using a stencil, think this is a Timmy one, some harlequins and then grunge paste. The flowers are all cut from a piece of card using the same colour Dylusions using a Prickly Pear die, some core and ivy and a piece of corrugated.

Happy weekend all and hope you will join in our challenge this week.

Gorgeous colours on your card and just love those flowers. Sat in the garden having a coffee but need a fleece on. Certainly got that autumnal nip in the air. I still have loads of Evening Primroses and Oxeyed Daises in bloom in the garden. Hugs Mrs A.
