colour challenge at scrap and stamp saturday.

6:01:00 AM

this week's challenge over at scrap and stamp Saturday is a colour challenge! the challenge is to use brown, cream and one additional colour - i chose red. i absolutely loved how this layout turned out - the photos, the use of scraps of paper, the stamping, sewing and even those old very old ki memories rub-ons by Love Elsie! (yes they still worked like a charm) For the patterned paper squares i dug around in my scraps and found patterned with creams and browns in and the red came with the beautiful old favourite by Jenni Bowlin. I hope this layout will inspire you to play along, but more importantly to use those old supplies you have - scraps are the best part about being creative. I love that i can make those beautiful papers stretch over a couple of layouts **'cause i really love patterned papers.

I used one of the rub-ons directly onto a piece of the 7gypsies patterned paper and cut closely around it. The text is still visible through the rub-on and in small bits around the edge. Transforming a piece of patterned paper and making it new again! i simply love that.
Beautiful buttons in cream sit nicely alongside a rub-on by scrapbook king. and remember a button finished off with some thread always looks nicer than an empty button!
My title was cut using my Making memories Slice Elite out of making memories and 7gypsies paper. I then used a fine script stamp and stamped directly onto the die-cut words in grey for a subtle watermark effect. The heart is a rub-on trimmed around the edges.
the tag stamp is one of my favourites stamped in Versafine onto 7gypsies text paper, matted onto black card stock and finished off with some jute. The tag was raised onto the layout for some dimension.
Go ahead and play along with us this week. so head on over to Scrap and Stamp Saturday and see what the other girls did with this stunning challenge! I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
