Thanks x 3

On Thursday night there was a Cyberstamp Night on my up-uplines' demonstrator forums (Angela Sargeant). Challenge 1 was a colour challenge - Bravo Burgundy, Ruby Rose and More Mustard. Ruby Rose is my least favourite red, I haven't had a lot to do with Bravo Burgundy, but I am fine with More Mustard. Anyway, I pulled up my swatches, and immediately thought "Autumn leaves", so went reaching for my "All the Best" set. I had already had a few late nights, so I kept it simple to lessen the chances of me stuffing up. This is what I came up with:

I used the Bravo Burgundy marker on the stamp and huffed on it before stamping on Very Vanilla cardstock. Must say that these came out better than when I tried this with Tombows or Marvy's. Maybe after my disappointment with previous efforts I put more oomph into my huff... I then used the 1 1/4" square punch to punch them out, and the 1 3/8" square punch on Bravo Burgundy cardstock to layer them on. Layered them all on some Ruby Red (which I grew to like... it's just not as yummy to me as Rose Red), and mounted it on the More Mustard card base. Tied some burgundy grossgrain with a bit of twine to finish it off.

This is simple but beautiful Lavs! I agree with you about the Ruby Red though - Rose Red is sooo much nicer... but after the whole Christmas thing I came to appreciate Ruby Red's versatility!

Lovely, especially liking the piece of twine
