Lavinia Challenge - Bright Hot Colours

Hi Everyone

November already, another month and another Challenge over at Lavinia.  This month it is Bright Hot Colours.  Such a great challenge for the dark evenings.  Here is my sample:

 
 
I have used the fantastic new stamps "Zentangles", these are Zen Flowers 1, 2 & 3 and the set Zen small flower pack.  I stamped the large flowers onto card which I had coloured using Distress Inks, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Ripe Persimmon.  I then covered with versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.  I stamped the Zen small flowers onto "copic" friendly thick card and coloured with my copics and highlighted with a white posca pen.  I cut out the small flowers and stuck to the card with sticky fixers.  The addition of a coloured gemstone finished the Bright Hot colours of my card which I mounted onto black card and then stuck to the card.
 
So now the nights are darker, get your crafty stash out of the cupboard and join in the new Challenge.  Remember you could win the fantastic prize of £40 to spend on Lavinia Stamps so you could get some of the new Zentangle stamps too as they are just gorgeous.  Pop on over and have a look. Thanks for looking and good luck! Kx
