Rainbows and stamps for STAMPlorations

Hello, it's time for a brand new theme and sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations. For November  it is
Here is the lovely sketch which you can use too.

Please check out all the rules over at the main blog post here. In brief you need to use stamping on your projects. You don't have to use STAMPlorations stamps to enter but of course we love it if you do! You can link up 6 times with new blog posts and you need to add our logo to your post. You can go with the theme, the sketch or both, the choice is yours.

Today I am sharing my first card to hopefully give you some inspiration to join us. I have chosen to use both the theme and sketch.

The lovely stamp set I chose to work with is Always Tea time
I created a rainbow using distress re inkers on watercolour card
 I then repeat stamped the small teacups for the background
 I stamped and watercoloured the large teacup for the focal.

I matted up my card and added a ribbon and some sequins to finish.
Here it is. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Crafty card makers 1/3 explosion of colours
Addicted to stamps and more 1/3 anything goes

The sketch is a very simple one and lovely to work with. We hope to see lots of you joining in the month, you can go with the theme or sketch or both. Here is the link again .

Bye for now,

  4. I absolutely agree with the sentiment and your card is lovely. Wonderful Halloween tags too. My poor trick or treaters got wet in the rain, rain, rain, but the fall colors are beautiful by me too. Enjoy it while it lasts!
