3 colours and 3D Rose Flurries

20180305_083013Hello everyone. After all the snow we had last week, (which I know is not a lot compared to some people, but we aren’t used to it), I managed to venture out on Friday to visit family. As I live in a wood and down a dirt track, I knew the post man wasn’t coming to make deliveries, so I called into the local Royal Mail centre to see if there was anything waiting to be delivered to us. (I was expecting some crafty goodness!)

And here we are………..the Altenew 3D Rose Flurries I’ve been trying to get my hands on for months. I’ve been playing with them all weekend – in between visiting family – and cutting them out in a multitude of colours – all monochrome at present. I’ll be daring to put them together with other colours soon, but I made this card to go into the current Color Throwdown Challenge – to use grey, Kraft, and pink.

The base grey card is Lawn Fawn ‘Narwhal’ (love it) and I stamped a flower with a pink Catherine Pooler ink for a background. I am amazed that this idea worked – stamping pink onto a dark grey card? It just shows how good these inks are.

I then die-cut the 3D roses and leaves, sticking them together with Crafters Companion spray glue (not sure about this glue, flowers seem to come apart the following day!!), and placing them onto the base card using 3D gel glue and foam pads.

Now for the mistake:

Well, now we have a cascade of roses flowing from the top of the card! 🙂 🙂

Or I may have to cut this out as a panel for the front of another base card…….

Some more monochrome flowers…..It seemed to take me forever to match the dies up the first time, but once done it’s easy.

  1. You’ve really made these color sing together. I have these dies and never thought to make them monotone – can’t wait to try it, now. Thanks for the inspiration, and for sharing your design with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
