Stamp With Us Colour Challenge

My card for last weeks challenge made Stamp with Us top 5 - Woweeeeee a lovely surprise - Thank you

Now for this weeks Stamp with Us colour challenge.

This challenge really was a challenge for me and has taken me out of my comfort zone - bright colours - all together - help!! Any way after much thought and placing papers together (sleepless nights; mess all over craft room; - LOL) I came up with this design - hope you like it. I used Loads of Love Stamp Set; why did I wait so long to get this set loved it all along but have only just bought it; (sorry rambling again) which I watercoloured with the ink pads for the Pick Up Truck and the Flowers in the back of the truck, after stamping In Real Red and So Saffron. The flowers on the greeting are from my stash but the colours went perfectly; I added brads to the flowers from Rich Regals for the green element which was in the picture (above). Surprisingly once I had decided which papers this card was really quick to put together and I am pleased with the overall effect.

Stamp Set - Loads of Love; Designer Papers - Washington Apple (New Mini Cat.); Inks - Pumpkin Pie ;Certainly Celery; So Saffron; Brads - Rich Regals; Ribbon Rich Red ; All Stampin' Up!

Flowers fom stash.
