This example is real rust cardstock with the en francais stamp - this is stamped in old olive ink and onto whisper white cardstock. The image is baroque motifs so is the setiment and there is a pearl from the pretties set and I have coloured this with a green marker to accent, the image is mounted on old olive cardstock and the flower punch is boho blossoms...

This example is old olive cardstock with chocolate chip. The image is stamped on whisper white and from the spring solitude stamp set the colours are close to cocoa, chocolate chip and garden green marker pens to colour the image. The ribbon is chocolate chip 1/4 grosgrain. The flowers and the brads are from my stash.
This is real red cardstock and again old olive - can you tell I like green? and the stamp set used is organic grace stamped onto whisper white, the squares are 2' by 2' and mounted onto whisper white. The ribbon is always artichoke.

The cardstock is bravo burgandy and old olive - the image is stamped onto whisper white and it from the close as a memory set. The ribbon also bravo burgandy and the paper is from junior varsity.

This is my first post and I hope you like my cards - I will be updating my blog again over the next few days with more examples and may even enter a challenge or too. Thanks for looking, Stamping Hugs Margaret x x x
