Timeless Celebration TCTC#1

Challenges are marvelous ways to get your creativity activated when you're feeling stale and so I'm going to try out a couple of new things today. Number one is a colour combination I'm not particularly comfortable with. Number two is a new stamp set that landed on my doorstep yesterday. Number three is probably the fact that this collage-style of stamping isn't really 'me', but I've been loving what everyone else is doing with it, so here goes!

Bronwyn Eastley at The Colour Tree set the challenge, and is also giving a free PDF file of a fabulour 3D project she made for the challenge. You ought to click on the link just to see her floral arrangement, Timeless Textures from the  Stampin' Up!® Occasions Catalogue is the main new stamp set I've used and I've used a couple of pictures from the catalogue to inspire a design. It's a little bit from Timeless Textures, and a little bit more from Grateful Bunch (and then I added three flowers from that stamp set too.

There are no sentiments with Timeless Textures, but lots of very interesting background stamps! Enjoy The Little Things was a stamp set I picked up at Stampin' Up!® Onstage back in November, and I've made good use of it. Celebrate Today is from that stamp set, and then I couldn't help myself and added   ....on your special day from the SALE-A-Bration stamp set Botanicals For You.
I've just added a picture of the sweet reason I wasn't able to open my box of new goodies to play when it was delivered!

Maybe it's too much, I don't know for sure, but I do know that I will be trying out a lot more new things with my new stash this week!
Cheers
Rachel

  1. That cutie is an excellent reason to put off opening your new goodies. I love the fact that you challenged yourself with the colour combo and collage stamping of which you did a stellar job of both. Thanks so much for joining in with the very first challenge at TCT. Your tutorial is on the way.
