Sunday Stampers - Week 222 - I Predict A Riot

My card for this weeks Sunday Stampers challenge is very simple - maybe not a 'riot' of colour but certainly brighter than I normally go.
So first I gently coloured some white card with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink so it had just a hint of colour.  Next I went in a little heavier with Fired Brick DI over a Special Touch of Mica flower mask.  The black flourish is a Fancy Pants stamp from way back & the flower is from Little Claire Designs - very pretty.  I painted the flower with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls then, once dry I added some TH Scattered Straw Distress Stickles.  The centre of the flower was painted with Pink Gumball Perfect Pearls with  Glossy Accents over the top for a raised & glossy effect. Then sentiment is TH, stamped twice with just the heart cut out of the second one & embossed with Heat it Up Chinese Red which has a lovely gold hint to it.


Well that's it for this week.  Matt has been safely delivered to Preston & apparently enjoying Freshers Week whilst I felt like a redundant mum & not enjoying my week at all!!  The University looks amazing which is great as it was all very last!
Take care. Sx


  1. Hi Sue, for some reason I love pink and red at the moment so this is a perfect riot of colour to me. The mask is lovely and so are your gorgeous flowers. The sentiment is perfect with the gorgeous red decoupaged heart. Love it. Crafty hugs, Anne x
