Having a Blast with Challenges

Got even more stamping done yesterday than I thought possible. It was great! For this one I combined two challenges - SSSC56 over on Karen Giron's blog and Inkspirations #18 Colour Challenge on Makeesha Byl's blog.

Apologies for the photo it turned out a bit blah. Here is what I used:

Stamps: Pun Fun

Paper: Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue and Brocade Blue DSP from Hostess Patterns Pack II

Ink: Stazon Black, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Brocade Blue

Accessories: Dimensionals, Ruby Red Brad, Circle Scissors Plus

For the colour challenge I was struggling to incorporate Mellow Moss but I think you can just see a hint of it on the rocket.

Have a great day - sun is shining :)
