Three colour card

Good morning all. I know this looks like a very simple and easy card, but I like that about it. I took inspiration from a couple of challenges with the colours and the theme, but in general I really like how this flower turned out.

I have used the Altenew stamp and die set ‘Extra Special’. (Yep – another new buy from Doncaster Dome/Which Craft show from last Sunday.) For the first card, I stamped onto a piece of white card in Versafine black onyx, then stamped the solid base layer for the flowers in yellow, using a Catherine Pooler ink. I added the second layer of the flowers, not with the layering stamps, but with a Zig marker.

The leaves I did the same way – layered with the solid stamps, then added further green with a Zig marker.

I die-cut the flowers with the matching die, and added to a piece of plain white card I had die-cut with my MFT Die-Namics ‘Wonky Stitched Rectangles’, raising the flower with some small foam pads, and adding the whole panel to a white card base.

For the second card, I stamped and coloured onto some water-colour card, as I didn’t know which way I was going with the colouring, but in the end I went with just the stamp and colour. Nothing fancy, and cut that panel out sticking directly down onto a white card base.

I haven’t added a sentiment, because I didn’t really know what sentiment to add. I like it as it is – plain, no sentiment, ready to be sent. For any occasion. Perhaps as a little note card. I may make several of these and package them together in sets of four.

I shall be entering into the following challenges:
