Favourite Flower Colours

Hi there. I have a veritable feast of flowers to share on a card today. It is the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz, and the theme is to use your favourite colours:

I couldn’t decide on one or two colours – so I did a few more! 🙂

I like pink and purple flowers, and I actually like when I stamp the flower layers using browns, too. The black leaves added as I do like black – is black a colour?

Anyhoo – these are my favourite colours when doing a card, especially with floral images – unless I am following a colour challenge – then the flowers become whatever is required.

I used a background stamp from Neat and Tangled, cut it down to put on the bottom half of the card, then added the flowers and leaves from Altenew ‘Always There’ with 3D glue – that way I can move them around a little until I am happy with the placement – and then push the black foliage underneath.

I hope you can come and join us with this challenge, and I see my fellow DT have come up with some very different creations – lots of different colours.

I shall also be entering this card into the following challenges:

Always there for you….

Hello again. I have a card to share today using several Altenew stamp and die sets: (no pheasants today, but you can still see the bluebells)

I used the Always There stamp and die set, and brown Altenew inks for the flower. The leaves are from another Altenew set, and the sentiment from yet another.

I didn’t stamp the outline at first, but when I was putting the card together, I decided that the black outline suited when I added the black leaves. Then I realised I hadn’t stamped the centre of the flowers, so I used the third middle stamp only, and added some pink with a Copic marker.

The background panel is actually the reverse impression of a Catherine Pooler stencil. I placed the stencil on some card, then spritz some Tonic Mica Mist onto the card through the stencil – and saw how much was actually on the top of the stencil – so I took another piece of card and laid that on top to get this reverse image. So – two backgrounds for the spraying of one….. frugal crafter!

I tried to catch the mica:
