Color Hues#11- Always and Forever

Afternoon, is it February already? Well as it's the first of the month it's time for a new colour combo at Color Hues. We've gone for a romantic colourway this month of Valentine's Day. Here is my take.

I've made quite a few cards using strips of card as backgrounds but for this card I made them the star of the show! I'd seen this card by Norine Borys and thought the black outline together with the striped
die cut was very striking so decided to make my take on it using the challenge colours.

I used Altenew's Hibiscus stamp set, it is a big bold outline stamp set, perfect for the background. After stamping and masking the different elements to create my spray, I went to work on my scrap box. As I've had a lot of time on my hands recently, I decided to have a clear out and tidy my bits and bobs. I also wanted to use some of them up and the striped backgrounds are a perfect way. You can buy dies to do the job but I just eyeballed it. The 1/4" strips were glued to a scrap of copy paper before lining up the Tall Alphabet Dies from Altenew onto my panel. I tried my best to line them up so that the lines of the strips followed the horizontal. When cut out, I placed them above a sentiment strip stamped with Always and Forever from Uniko's Always and Forever set. The result, I feel, is quite romantic without being too mushy!

So for more red and pink inspiration please check out the rest of the girls over at the Color Hues blog, then why not join in?
