Our colour challenge for you this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments uses the following colours:

I'm sure I've mentioned previously that I am not an SU Demo so I don't always have all the new colours as happened here with Bumblebee so I used Crushed Curry instead.  I think it looks very similar.  Our colours are always guidelines and you don't have to use the SU colours exactly.

So I started my card off with using the Drybrush stamp and some Crushed Curry.  This stamp is so great for making backgrounds and I feel it is often overlooked.  I then used the lovely Country Home set and my first time for using those lovely jugs.  This is just my kind of stamp set and I'm surprised it took me so long to buy it but I'm glad I did.  I stamped the jugs in the Blackberry Bliss and Night of Navy and used the same colours to colour in the flowers.  That touch of green came about by mixing the Night of Navy and the Crushed Curry to give a green hue for the leaves.  The little sentiment is from the same set and I just added a few Night of Navy dots to finish it off.

I then added this to some Blackberry Bliss card stock and added some Linen Thread.  

I used the tile stamp from the same set to stamp the background in Night of Navy ink onto the card stock to give tone on tone - I think you can just make out the stamps.  I then added a cut doily and inked it with a light of coating of Crushed Curry just to soften the white.  I added a Blackberry Bliss button and some thread to the bottom.#hss

Great card Fiona. Love that stamp set too, although I haven't purchased it yet. Very creative using the doily and the layers. Thanks for sharing.
