LIM - red and orange

I had to make a couple of quick birthday cards and so what better than to go for CAS cards, however, there was a fair bit of time and inkiness to get carried away with before I managed to get them finished!
Here is the first:
I used cut and dry to cover a piece of watercolour paper in Distress inks (Fired Brick, spiced marmalade, Dried marigold and Wild Honey), spraying it with iridescent gold glimmer mist. Once it was dry, I used the Hobby art Stamp set 'Anna's collection - Just for You' in the same colours. I added a couple of gold embossed flower heads before cutting the panel into three equal parts. The sentiment is a very old one from Stamporium (no longer available). I am entering this one into the LIM challenge where the colour theme is red and orange this week, and Clean and Simple Sunday where the theme is Flowers.
I enjoyed this one so much I decided to do a very similar one with different colours and different stamps.
For this one I used Adirondack inks in Bottle, stream and purple twilight with the Wild Meadow stamps from Elusive images/ Chocolate Baroque. I will do my best to visit some of the lovely LIMettes during the week. Thanks for looking and for leaving lovely comments x

  23. Both cards are wonderful Sally. I love your backgrounds; they look fabulous. I think my favorite is the blue and lavender; but I'm partial to the color blue so thats probably why. :)
