Hello. I’ve been doing some more crafting – and yes – despite all the die cutting from the other day – I did more for this card:
I used the colours from the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches to colour the white die-cuts from using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral 3 die set. This time, I forgot to use double sided sticky tape on the back, so the flowers are constructed with glue – not my favourite way of sticking little bits together – but I was patient…..kinda!
I used the Hero Arts ‘Wood Grain Infinity dies‘ again to create the frames so I could mimic the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
A little close-up of the flowers and frames:
The sentiment is from Altenew, and I also used the teeny tiny dimensionals I received recently behind the frames – a little dimension. The flowers aren’t completely stuck down – I do like to create some movement when using flowers like these, and so I tend to tuck them inside a frame like this, or just stick the stalks into some 3D glue behind other images.
I even took a photo – slightly dark I’m afraid – against some flowers which almost seemed to match the colours:
As well as the flower colour, and the photos with my garden in the background – there is a lot of green around at the moment. We have had quite a bit of rain, and I am looking forward to the promised sunshine and warmer temperatures for this Bank Holiday weekend in the UK.
The challenges I shall be entering are:
CAS Colours and Sketches – Gorgeous Grape, Crushed Curry, Highland Heather (attempted matching with Copics)
Freshly Made Sketches – sketch
Try It On Tuesday – In my garden is…….
Also – I’m trying to link photos from challenges to their challenge site – and not just write down the challenge and theme etc …..can you let me know if it does or doesn’t work? I’m playing a little here………. 🙂 🙂
