Seize the Birthday 2

I needed another post to add my second entry.

Seize the Birthday

Banners & Tags this time.

Here are my entries.  Not sure if I can link both with the same post, but here goes.  Still having trouble with the camera.

A card for Colour Me ...!

Colour challenges are my favourites as they give me somewhere to focus. 
This time it's Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine tango & Real Red.  I started by sponging the colours through a stencil onto a masked card, then added the stamping.

Here's my card ... and it would have been really good if I could have managed to get the photo up the right way.  Generally my phone camera is well-behaved .... but not this time.  I tried 4 orientations but couldn't get a portrait view no matter what I tried.  Any suggestions gratefully received - apart from the one that says I'm hopeless with technology!  This is going to look really stupid in my challenge entry.

A colour challenge entry

Ctd 310I've been busy lately & haven't worked on any challenges; it's nice to try again.

I've had a go at this color throwdown one.  Check it out here.  I found it difficult to get a balance with these colours.  I wanted to use a variation in colour for the embossed background, so combined pistachio Pudding & Coastal Cabana - just LOVE the I Love Lace background stamp from SU.  When embossed it FEELS like lace as well as looks like it.

Here's my effort.
