We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Say it with colour!

This month's Craft Stamper challenge is all about colour, so I decided to dust off my Dylusion sprays, which haven't seen the light of day for a couple of months!

I sprayed some sheets of card with the Dylusions, then decided to add a some of the Prima sprays, the ones with mica in them.  Weirdly the Prima spray instantly dried the Dylusion spray - not sure what is going on there, but the effect was what I was looking for - vibrant colour with a bit of shimmer; though the shimmer doesn't show in the photo.

Anyway, I took my current favourite Paper Artsy flower stamp, stamped it 3 times onto each of the sprayed bits of card to create my very colourful flower.

Another thing I've been meaning to try is creating shapes with a hot glue gun.

I wanted some drips.  My first few attempts were rubbish, but once I got the hang of it I couldn't stop! Difficult to photograph - this is just a small section of my craft sheet!

I then coloured some with silver gilding wax; and carefully put the rest in a little box - hope they don't all stick together!  No doubt you will be seeing these drips on a lot of other projects!

Background is done with Distress Inks, and I made a square stencil to add a bit of interest; I added more colour with pencils.

I've named this flower Kaybeesia colourii - don't think you will be seeing it at Chelsea though!
