Colour Combo Blog Hop - September...

Good morning and welcome to the Colour Combo Hop for September.  You are joining me, along with demonstrators from all over the World, to create a project using...

When I saw these colours I instantly thought of flowers for the Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green and then I had to think how I could incorporate the blue.

This is what I came up with...

One of my favourite returning sets for this year is Under My Umbrella, I just love the effect you can get on the brollies either leaving them plain or, as I have done here, blinging them up a bit.

I stamped the brollies in Black Memento and used Stampin' Blends to colour them in.  I fussy cut them as where I had stamped the flowers over the edge, I needed to remove the excess.  There is of course a really great punch for the brollies and handles.

I embossed the background using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  The scalloped edge by the greeting is taken from the Be Mine Stitched dies.

I hope you like my project.  All products used can be purchased by clicking on the links shown below.

I am now going to pass you on to Caroline who will have something beautiful to share with you today.

Happy Stampin'
