Same colours, two slightly different looks

I enjoyed using Versamagic, so made these in pastel colours for two special people who are going through a very sad and difficult time right now.

They’re more or less the same design, using the same colours but stamping the backgrounds in different colours (alternating between Ocean Breeze and Aquatic Splash for text and flowers) finishing off with two different colours (Purple Hydrangea and Turquoise Gem) which gives them a slightly different look.  Spring Pansy just adds a touch warmth to the otherwise cold colours. It’s not often I stamp without black but I’m quite enjoying the softness of these inks at the moment.
Love this stamp set from Innovative Stamp Creations – the flowers are wonderful and work well for a lot of occasions but will also be perfect for a backdrop in my journal.
Thought I’d have a go at the Craft Barn Journalling challenge and found this – I’d forgotten all about it.  I was upset and frustrated about something at the time – can you tell??????

So I just finished this page for the Craft Barn Challenge.

The theme is buildings and I was thinking about a U2 song (or 2).
I still haven’t decided on the Blog Candy – my apologies but I’ve found it difficult for various reasons, so will ask someone else to do it as soon as I can!  Sorry to keep you waiting but I got some other stuff together and there will now be more than one prize, so hang on in there.

Wohoo!  Just found out I won the Craft Barn Journalling prize and am absolutely gobsmacked!  Can you tell I’m from ‘up North’, he, he?  Ooh, I get a prize, too – can’t wait!  Thanks to whoever chose my page xxx
