'Colour horribilis' challenge

Indeed, what a 'horrible' combination. Can't believe I did this voluntarily and without getting paid for or bribed ;)

Ok, here is the story: I misted the watercolor paper with Ranger Reinkers *Mustard Seed* and *Faded Jeans*. The stamp is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps, the sentiment from Autumn Leaves.

This is the weekly Play Date Café Challenge

Monthly Sketch challenge at CropStop

I usually don't participate in monthly challenges, I seem to forget to check back to look at all the inputs and also who won etc.

This time I couldn't resist.

I used my newest toy, the stamp set "Seasons of Love" from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I also cut one heart from cork for matting.

The background paper is an older paper from K&Company.

Weekly challenge at CCCB and Tag Challenge *NO PAPER* at Kard Krazy

I created a tag for this Tuesdays Tag challenge at Kard Krazy form cork. It is also my input for this weeks challenge at City Crafters Challenge Blog.

I embossed the clock and the swirls with Antiquities, worked pretty good. I had thought the cork would absorb the ink too fast to apply the powder. But ..... sure looks like it worked ;)

Colour challenge #46 at CQC

I stamped the background also with the HC stamps in 3 different colours. It's actually a bit too wild for my taste , but meets the challenge at ColourQ

Earthy colours at the Play Date Café

This weeks challenge (My 20th "anniversary" already) at PDCC calls for earthy colours, my favorites among all the autumn colours.

I used Sparkly Fluff in dark brown on the heart. The background paper is K&Company, The ribbon from SU.

Colour challenge #45 at CQC

This is my creation for this weeks challenge at CQC.

I have had this Heidi Swapp flower for ages ....
The background is misted (well, actually wiped) with TA Glimmer Mist *Riptide*, I added some ribbons and lace and a very old button from my stash.

Left my heart in San Francisco in Blue and Yellow ....

I created this background with Reinker and water in a Mini Mister on water colour paper. The heart is an older Bossskut die, I painted it and covered it with Ranger Rock Candy.

This card is for the weekly challenges at SPCC and CCCB.

I'm puzzled...

Well, not really :)

I created theses puzzle pieces with Gesso and Crackle paint, stamped and embossed them and used some of my favorite sentiments and images from Crafty Individuals and Lisa's Altered Art.

Yummy in Italian colours ;)

I decided to combine two challenges in this ATC, the PDCC and the CCCB, one for the colours and the other one for the theme. (BTW: Is wine considered food?)

I once again created the background with Gesso and Alcohol Ink and stamped it with Crafty Individuals clock stamps. The images are from Lisa's Altered Art and the little fence is an older Sizzix die, the lace from my stash.

Colour challenge #44 at CQC

I have made a similar card before, but I needed another one for a friend so I decided to use the colours of this weeks challenge at CQC.

Tag Challenge *DRESSMAKER* at Kard Krazy

This is my creation for this weeks TT challenge at Kard Krazy. I used the template Sarah provided, some adhesive pearls for a necklace, Tulle for the belt and a vintage button. The *legs* I created from regular wire I always have handy. The corner stamps are Prima and the sentiment is by Lisa's altered Art.
