Citrus Themed Card, inpsired by everyone entries.

I started this project with 3 two inch squares cut from scraps of mount board and a precious 2 inch square piece of stampbord.
I used lemon yellow ink direct ti the mount board and to the stampbord.

I stamped the linen square stamp on to two of the card squares and on to the stampbord.

On the stampbord I added some daffodil ink to the edges. I added Mountain Ash leaf images with Spirng Green pigment ink.

To complete the card I used a 6 ich square card base in yellow. I sprayed a 14cm square of stamping card with Citrus Orange ink in a Bottle. On a another scrap of card I sprayed lots of Citrus Green ink and moved it around with the linen stamp. Whilst the ink was wet I spooned on clear embossing powder for texture. This was cut to 2 x  6cmsquares to create the smaller mats
The final touches were a sentiment and a charming butterfly.

I  hope that has inspired you to dig out your Oak House Studio stash and get an entry into the challenge.

Thank you for all your entries, and thank you all the kind words about my Oak House Studio goodies, it makes the hard work really worth while.

New Challenge for February

 Welcome to another challenge from the team at Oak House Studio.
It looks like we may be doing a few challenges so I have written a set rules that will stand for all challenges although each challenge may have some twist.
The twist this month is an extra special prize. I will be putting together a gift box with ink pads, inks in a bottle and embossing powders and of course stamps!! There will be at least £60 worth of product in the box.  So now you want to know what you have to do.

Well our theme is citrus colours, you can make any project you like as long as you follow the colour theme AND you use at least one Oak House Studio product. So you could use our lovely citrus inks in a bottle or maybe you will use one of our Pigment inks in spring green. Maybe you will use one of our stamps and someone else's inks!

Whatever you decide to do, we need to see your project, so post it on your blog and leave us a comment with a link direct to your blog post. Make you sure we know which Oak House Studio products you have used.
If you haven't got a blog you can post your project on our facebook page but again remember to tell us what Oak House Studio product you used.
The challenge will run until the end of the month.
I am off to get the design team started on making some projects to inspire you.
