Hello again everyone. I have stayed away from Christmas cards for a little while, and had a play with this stamp from Altenew. I love Iris’. The colours are unbelievable, especially when I had an internet search for all the colours possible with this flower. There are some amazing colours out there…..as I was searching, I came across an Iris which was purple, yet had yellow petals underneath, then bits of orange – all perfect for the current challenge from Color Throwdown.
I stamped my flowers in Versafine black onyx, then again with Ranger Perfect Medium and heat embossed with clear. I then selected appropriate colours from my Zigs. I wasn’t intending to do shading, but those yellow and orange petals just called out for a little playing.
I kept the card quite simple, and I may make more in the same colours, but also try some different colours – there are lots of deep purple/blue/cobalt flowers on the internet, so I may use those colours next.
As well as the Color Throwdown, what should be the photo inspiration for Stamping Sensations current challenge? Can you guess? Check it out – an Iris……well then…..that’s a twofer! Now for the three-fer – the September Altenew challenge is a jug of flowers, lots of purple and pink and green…….there we go. 🙂
