Sunday Stamps 187

I've been playing around with Varied Vases a bit this week for two reasons. The first is that I haven't had it long and it kind of got left out once Christmas pre-order arrived, so it deserved some love. The second is that it's a featured set at this month's classes. When I saw the colour challenge at Sunday Stamps, I thought it was a great palette to use in my playing around.

The challenge was to use a minimum of three but I've used them all. For the bright red, Real Red. For the hot pink, Melon Mambo. For the light green, Mint Macaron. For the deep blue/green, Tranquil Tide and for the dark blue, Night of Navy.

I added in some of the new Chicken Wire elements. I sponged the white side in Mint Macaron before adding it, although it seemed a shame to put the silver side face down!

Perhaps difficult to see is the texture left on the white card front by the Subtle textured embossing folder. It's well named but the texture is adds is a wow in real life. 

Thank you, Sunday Stampers, for a great colour combination!
