November quintiles

 As you may have expected, the theme for November was fireworks - sounds simple - and obvious- but finding any Choc Baroque stamps that fitted it wasn't easy.  I was beginning to think I would be reduced to splodging colour on randomly when I thought of the wild meadow stamp set, which includes this stamp- can never remember what plant it is though!
Anyhow, I just used the flower head, and stamped it twice in versamark onto dark blue card then added random embossing powders - they all came from a box of powders I was given, and I used the most lurid ones, the photo doesn't really do justice to the bright pink, orange and purple  (perhaps thankfully!). I added splodges of holographic powder using a versamark pen around the flower heads to try to create a glow around the main colours.
The diecut houses are from a Tim Holtz die, cut in black card.


  1. Oh wow these are fantastic, I've just managed to get mine done but they are very simplistic this month as I was running out of time

  3. They do look like fireworks! Clever! Nice colours too

  4. This theme did require some thought didn't it? These look great and it will be interesting to see the various 'takes' this month.

  5. What a clever idea. It worked perfectly! Well done. Kate x
