I was not sure at all about this kit as it's very bright AND very pink, neither of which is very me. However, one of the purposes of getting a kit was to try to get outside my comfort zone colour wise. I do gravitate towards blue and brown almost all the time!
So this is the result of my first encounter with the kit and I have to say I am pleased with it. I used the reverse side of some of the papers as they were more muted (the polka dots) to balance the busy shaped paper. The kit is Lime Twist from MME in case you were wondering.
After making this I have decided I may be rather partial to baker's twine...

Another little birdy today. I actually made this ages ago (October last year in fact, for the Artisan show) but only recently rediscovered it in a box and hung it in my craft room :).
The stamps are PaperArtsy, the background is inked, stamped over with a map image in Distress Ink and then misted to bleed it into what looks like a fine crackle. The overstamped postmarks and splatters are PaperArtsy too. The whole thing is painted with Rock Candy for a subtle crackle (which further bleeds the Distress Ink too).
The flowers are cheap white Prima's - I always buy the white ones and just colour them to suit with sprays.
Looking like my next stamp set will be out in the next week or so - literally waiting for sign off and we are hopefully good to go. This one is my fave yet, it's lush if I do say so myself :).
