Quixotic Challenge #39 : Colour Challenge

Hi everyone! It's Wednesday afternoon and so time for a brand new challenge at Quixotic Paperie.  It's my  turn to set the challenge this week, and I have chosen  a Colour Challenge - Black, White and one other colour!

I also have some wonderful news that I can now officially share with you - I have been invited to join the Paper Makeup Stamps design team!!! Woo-hoo!!  A huge THANK YOU to Katie, Tangii and the rest of the makeup girls - I am SO excited and so honoured to join such an AWESOME and FABULOUS team!

So in honour of my new DT position, I decided to use one of the corset stamps from my Paper Makeup Stamps "Oo La La" stamp set for today's QPC card!  This fab stamp set is available to purchase direct from Paper Makeup Stamps in the US, or if you're in the UK/Europe you can order it HERE from Quixotic Paperie [and I'll bet you didn't know that Quixotic Paperie is the only UK retailer for PMS stamps?].  The stamp set comprises 3 corset stamps and 7 sentiment stamps:

I've also followed the Makeup for the Weekend challenge #40 over at the PMS blog, where Danni is challenging us to make Bithday Cards.  I've stamped "Of corset your birthday!" from this great set inside the card!  In fact, Danni has made a gorgeous card using the same stamp set as me, and funnily enough she's also used B&W and one colour (pink!), so be sure to check it out at the PMS Blog and at Danni's blog!  I've also followed the fab sketch SSS71 over at The Sweet Stop!
