Different Flowers

Hello again. I have a couple of cards to share with you today.

The first card is using the Altenew Ranunculus stamp and die set, and stamped using a more teal colour. The leaves I just used the outline and the detail stamps, not the base colour, as I wanted them quite muted.

The layout is for the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches, with the circle fromΒ  a Stampin Up/Sizzix set. I realised I don’t actually have any larger circle dies – something I must change!

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

The second card is using the colours for the current Color Throwdown Challenge, and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I used the MFT ‘More Rustic Flowers‘ but again only using a couple of the layers for the flowers, not all of them.

The greenery is from the same stamp set, with the green dots supposedly being part of a branch in that set, but I used it as you see here. I bent the stems for the flowers in different ways, which is so easy to do with photo-polymer sets.

The sentiment is from the die set for Concord and 9th ‘Painted Rose‘….the rose card from yesterday, in fact, is that stamp set. I die cut the sentiment several times in black card with a double sided sticky sheet on the back, and stuck them together, so it could have a little dimension.

Now – I’m not really sure about this card. It took a little moment or two for me to actually think whether or not to post it. I’m not sure whether it’s the grey background card, or the purple/lilac card – but I’m not sure I like it! Maybe it’s the plain-ness of the background – I just don’t know.

I may try this layout again, with different ways of doing the background, but here it is. In all it’s glory!
