A card, a challenge and an Indian takeaway!

Only a quick post today and a reasonably quick card as I'm supposed to be helping with the decorating...not my favourite pastime it has to be said.

I had a peek to see what the SCS colour challenge is for this week. The colour combo for this week is chocolate chip, taken with teal and apricot appeal.

First I stamped the background in white with a floral stamp from Inkadinkadoo onto the chocolate card. The image is by Lavinia...if you know Lavinia stamps you will know this isn't how they are normally used but I think they work really well as the main image for a card as well as for creating scenery.

Well, I'd better get back before I'm missed...I am not very good at painting...I have more paint on me than there is on the walls!

Still, when we're finished tonight it's off to the Indian takeaway...

Take care peeps.

Now I'm jealous - not the decorating, or even the stamps this time, but the takeaway mmmmmmm.

Is that the white inkpad that was recommended a week ago?? xx

Hi Sarita

Hope you are OK. Sorry its taken me so long to visit you, busy, busy, busy !

You certainly have made some stunning cards here, I love them all. Looking forward to seeing what white ink you have found, the Elzybells one certainly looks impressive and I wouldn't mind giving it a go myself.

Take care of yourself and keep up the stunning creations !
