Simply …Hello….

Hi there everyone. I am so excited to be the Featured Stamper this week at Color Throwdown. The colours are white, black, gold, and pink:

Here is my card based on the above colours:

I started by stamping the Altenew flower with a range of pinks, then heat embossed the second layer of the leaves onto white card stock. Once these were die cut, I played around with the layout so much – different black parts, different gold parts, plain white, black and gold…..until I saw these die sets when hunting through my stash.

The black die-cut is from Avery Elle, and the white wood frames are from an infinity die set from Hero Arts.

The sentiment is from the same Avery Elle set – cut out of white card, double sided sticky tape on both sides, Altenew gold embossing powder added – and then stuck down.

I hope you can come and join us this week using these colours – I think they are so versatile………..I look forward to seeing what you create. 🙂

Vintage Cut Rose

Hello there, everyone. I have a couple of cards to share with you today, with the only difference between the two is the colour of the embossing, and the colour of the flower itself:

A little close-up of the gold embossing:

I used a new stamp set to me, the Thirsty Brush and Co ‘Vintage Cut Rose‘. I didn’t know it was a rose when I did it, but looked at the web site for the name of the stamp set when putting this post together.

I wanted to play with my water-colours so I stamped and embossed the image – one gold and one black – then took my Altenew water-colour pan set and played.

I didn’t want the flower colours to be one colour, so I did the blue and purple for one flower, and red, orange and yellow for the other. The leaves are a combination of three greens – I think – but I was just playing.

Previously I have been scared about mixing colours to not get brown (!!) Still playing and practising…………..

The panel is die-cut with one of my favourite Catherine Pooler die sets, and the background paper on each is from my stash of Stampin Up DSP.

I shall be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
