Woo hoo, for the first time in I don't know how long we have a weekend at home to catch up on things and I can play for the LIM Challenge straight away. The first card uses new stash from the trip that Chrissie, Lady Limette herself and I made to the NEC, I have long drooled over the Stampscapes stamps, but they are even more enticing now you can buy them as unmounted, not just on woodblock. By the time I returned to the stand I had spent, umm, a lot and I just bought the two stamps I used here. They are stunning and this is my third inking of it, one I messed up by not being patient while the black ink dried on the glossy card. Background is brayered with Kaleidoscope spices and I have added and Adirondack Currant Red ink sun. Sentiment is Stampin' Up, using a bit of the one I messed up.
I restrained myself from grilling Chrissie about this week's theme during our shopping foray, had I done successfully I would have bought some orange embossing powder from WOW for the next card which I admit is a rather brownish orange... This is my first set of Darkroom Door stamps, the detail on these is stunning and like the Stampscapes, it stamped perfectly. This is a one layer card, embossed with Apple Red and Nutmeg, sentiment is Stampin' Up. It's hard to see but I embossed two parallel lines beneath the leaves, they seemed to need something to stop them drifting!
And lastly a photo of two happy shoppers:)
