Addicted to Stamps and More #58

Time for our new challenge at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week is our colour challenge but with a little twist! Our twist being that if you use an image from our fabulous sponsor Nicecrane Designs you don't need to follow the colours. On our blog you will find a freebie from Nicecrane Designs or check out the store here.

Our Colours this week are:


I do like these colours but thought I would go with a background set of images I have from Nicerane Designs called Stunning Nature. And here is my card:


I re-sized this image and printed it out on plain white card. I covered it in acetate and added some glossy accents where there are raindrops on the picture. Then used an embossed card base to place the image. It was so hard to photograph it so you could see how cool the raindrops look IRL. This was something different for me and a bit of an experiment but I loved how it turned out. I sent it to my Mum and Dad as a thank you for everything they do for me. And they told me they thought it was gorgeous (still, I guess they would!)

I really do love this set of images and have another card using these to share with you in a few weeks. Our DT have some really great projects to inspire you this week. Take a look at these here then join in the fun.

Here is the image set:
