Raspberry, Choc and Cream...

 It's a colour challenge at FSC this fortnight!

Raspberry - Chocolate - Cream

(Yummm...sounds like ice-cream doesn't it)
Which is perfect for our weather down south at the moment. 
It is a scorcher today ~ so Neapolitan  ice cream sounds soooo good!



It has been great to have the time to play with some new stamps and create a collage.
When I added the harlequin stencil I noticed how it makes the face come forward...
that was unexpected, but I quite like it.
I have added some raspberry DI to the stencil and to the butterflies.


I hope everyone has had a wonderful xmas followed by a relaxing few days...
I know that my thoughts are definitely on exercise now 
~ ummm...but I think I need to do more than just think about it...

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.


Enjoy!

Such a glorious card Dot, the colours and stamps are fabulous and the collage design has worked so well.

This collage has worked so well using these stamps, and the face looks 'layered' on top. Love it.
Have a wonderful New Year and enjoy your ice cream!

A wonderful collage Dot, love how you have used those stamps, and yes, the way the face comes forward looks brilliant! Your lovely hot weather sounds wonderful too, enjoy!

Hope the new year will bring you much joy and creativity!

This certainly looks so much better than my card would have been Dot.

Love all the different layering of crafting mediums but especially love how the colour tones they have all blended perfectly together.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

Nearly 2014 and I do hope that you and your family have health, wealth and happiness for the coming year.
