Good news! I'm on half term, I've finished the most recent round of exams and assignments and I now have time to play - woohoo! When I saw this week's combined Case Study and Play Date challenges I knew I had to play along. Here is the inspiration/colour challenge:
That gorgeous card is from Eva Dobilas and the colour challenge is to use black, green and red. I based my card on the colours from the gorgeous Love Letter DSP (Riding Hood Red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla) and then added a touch of Old Olive with my watercolouring. Here's what I came up with:
I must say, I had lots of fun making this one! The flowers (from Growing Green) were stamped four times on watercolour paper then coloured with Riding Hood Red ink and an aquabrush. I cut the centres out from two of them then layered over the full flowers for a paper-tole effect. The leaves are from Autumn Splendour and also watercoloured with inkpad and aquabrush. The little butterfly (from Cottage Garden) was stamped on Newsprint DSP and cut out - I added some pearls to the body and an extra few under the sentiment.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Growing Green, Autumn Splendour, Cottage Garden, Because I Care (hostess)
Ink: Stazon, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive
Paper: Love Letter DSP, Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, watercolour
Accessories: Basic Black grosgrain ribbon, basics pearls, scallop trim border punch, scallop border punch, nesties
Thanks for stopping by!
