Oranges and Lemons

Hi, it's my turn to host the challenge today over at Stampotique. Ever since I was small I've loved the colour yellow and the rest of the citrus colours.They are just so fresh and always make me feel happy. So this week I want you to use citrus colours and spread the happiness!

I started by putting some Grunge Paste through some stencils then giving everything a few coats of paint.
Next we have plenty of stamping with Carol's Flower Large and Small. There's also Vintage Script there in the background.
The flowers are Carol's flowers again that have been stamped, cut out and spritzed  to shabby them up a little. They've also been stamped with Romantic Text. The stems have been die cut and are also stamped with Romantic Text.
The Small Butterfly has been stamped onto book pages and cut out.
So please join in and break out your citrus colours. Remember there's a chance for 2 lucky people to win a $30 gift certificate.
Hope you like this, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. Gorgeous project, I love yellow and orange too, always so warm and sunny. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Your project is awesome Sue your butterflies and flowers are gorgeous, but i am really going to struggle with this one as i really dislike citrus colours, my school uniform was bright yellow and green and have never been a lover of these colours since (think that happens to everyone, right...).

    A fab theme for the DT who have created some amazing and inspirational projects :-) xxx

  3. A beautiful bright piece to cheer us up on these wintery days. I love the flowers you made

  9. Your joy in these colours is so clear, Sue - and I've really enjoyed seeing the DT makes and entries on my travels today - so yes, the colours have cheered me up too (and I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself with a foul sore throat and hacking cough - so that's pretty impressive!).

    Love your glowing layered flowers here - and the fab stamping in the background too.
