I've been struggling this weekend to find my creativity - I've dabbled with inks, cut up pieces of card, failed to create a stencil, struggled to find colour combinations that work! I have succeeded in creating a lot of scraps/off cuts that may or may not end up in the bin!
I wanted to enter the challenge at Uniko Studio but I didn't feel I could continue my obsession with the Gerbera Stamp set (I do still really like it and enjoy creating with it!!) as luck would have it I treated myself to a new set from the lovely Beverley (thanks for the discount!) - Today, Tomorrow & Always TIME - so I thought I would give it a go!
My next problem was colour matching, the theme for the challenge - Thinking of You with the following colour combination
This is where my problems really started - in a desire to be as close to the colours as possible I seemed to go round and round in circles. I've decided that I really do not like Pink! I had to resort to mixing a couple of shades of pink with my water colour set and came up with this:

I heat embossed the stamps and then coloured with water colour paints, cut the panel up into strips and the mounted on the card base using dimensional adhesive.

"Less is More" - it is Lucky Dip week and the challenge is to 'use more than one stamp'
Finally I would like to thank the designers over at Addicted to Stamps for giving one of my cards an Honourable Mention - this is the card they liked:
