Good afternoon, we're halfway through the month so it's time for a brand new colour combination at Color Hues. Here's my take.
Over at the Flower Challenge they want you to add a heart to your design, so I decided to make an engagement card with a stenciled heart background and some bold purple blooms from Altenew.
To start, I took a slightly smaller than A6 panel of white card and stenciled through a heart stencil with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste and set to one side to dry. I've not used the paste for awhile and although the original paper cap is on and lid was tightly shut, the paste has dried out a lot. Anyone else had the same problem?
On a panel of Copic friendly card, I stamped the Altenew Poppy Garden flowers and leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black, colouring the petals with a mix of V12, V15, V17 and V09 Copic marker. The leaves were coloured using YG21, YG25,YG17 and YG67. The flower centers posed a slight problem as I was limited to the colours in the challenge and neutrals, but I got over this by using a selection of Copics from the green section, YG00, YG95, YG97 and G99.
The greeting is an old Cuttlebug plate die cut from silver mirror card, mounted on fun foam and a stamped sentiment strip from HLS. The completed panel was then added to an A6 white base card.
So where will the colours take you? The DT have come up with some fabulous ideas to get your creative juices flowing, check them out here.
