Seven Hills Crafts Colour Challenge...
I was rummaging through Instagram and I came across a challenge run by an English craft store - Seven Hills Crafts.
I really liked the pretty colours and the fruity theme - although you don't need to use fruit. You do need to use at least one product that Seven Hills sell in their store.
I decided to use the first colour palette (the one with the Strawberry).
I wanted the main focus of my card to be the awesome Pop Art stamp set by Concord and 9th. I stamped and die-cut two of the pineapples.
I die-cut a white panel using MFT stitched rectangle dies, I inked a Stampin' Up brushstroke stamp in pale green ink and spritzed it with water, before laying the die-cut panel on it.
I used a green spotty scrap of paper from Lawn Fawn and affixed it to the stamped panel using hot pink staples - gotta love hot pink staples!
I was a bit in a quandary about how to display the pineapples on the card and decided to set them up at an angle on the green spotty panel. I punched a a Stampin' Up label in hot pink and stamped the sentiment on it.
Obviously I had to add bling to finish off my card..
I am pretty pleased with it, it's quite a busy mix of colours and patterns, but I like that.
