Scrappy Challenge {10}

I did this layout for a Kim's blog challenge. The challenge here was to use 5 different stamps on a layout, including stamping the back ground. I loved doing this simply because it was a challenge to put together a boys layout, this is mainly because I have plenty of flower stamps that I use often, so I tried something different.
I stamped the background with a Hero Arts Background stamp and did other bits with various acrylic stamps.
One thing I do have is tons of stamps, acrylic as well as block mounted which I hardly ever use, but I will definitely be using them more often now because I really like the effect.
The colour combination is not something I would normally use but got my inspiration from Colour Combos Galore
Thanks for the inspiration Kim, it was great doing my first Scrappy Challenge !!

Here is a picture of the products and some of the tools I used to create this.
{Stamps : Autumn Leaves, Fancy Pants, Wildflower, Imaginisce, Hero Arts Background Stamp}

And here is a bit of scrappy mess. I love creative mess and it feels so good now that I don't have to pack up everything each time I scrap. Before I was confined to the dinning room table, and packed up at each meal time, it eventually became such an issue for me that I didn't scrap much. Now I have a little bit of space in the spare room and loving it.

Oh wow Bee!! I love this...I love how you used the two strong colours (yellow & charcoal) together.
Great take on the challenge...I'll post them all tomorrow!

Thanks so much for joining in...the whole challenge thing lost momentum when I got sick...& people seem to be a bit out of the loop right now. I was getting an average of 9-11 entries each week which made things so much fun.
Hopefully things will pick up again.
Like the new blog look...very 'jooj' if that's how you spell it.
Chat soon.
