Welcome to week 22 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing a 2018-19 In Colour: Grapefruit Grove.
This isn’t a colour I’d used before so I was really stumped when trying to decide what colour combination to use.
Then I realised Grapefruit Grove was a colour featured in one of my favourite Designer Series Paper collections, the Share What You Love DSP. And you really don’t need to do much to this stunning paper.
I simply fussy cut some of the flowers (including the Grapefruit Grove flower) layered them onto the DSP with dimensionals and embellished the flowers. I used the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls for two of the flowers and a sparkling Grapefruit Grove tinted faceted button for the other flower.
I also highlighted the black stems of these flowers by adhering strips of black cord to the stems and adding little bows of black bakers twine.
And because I felt there was already enough happening on the front of the card, I stamped the sentiment inside the card instead, using the happy birthday stamp from Best Birds and embellishing with some more fussy cut flowers. The stems I simply drew in with my Basic Black Marker.
This DSP is just so lovely I ended up making a second card, using the reverse side of this pattern I used in my first card.
I’m not sure whether the colour on this side of the DSP is Petal Pink or Grapefruit Grove stamped off, but either way, I think it works really well with my Grapefruit Grove birds sitting on their Basic Black tree branch.
The eyes of the birds are Grapefruit Grove pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, and the sentiment, birds and tree branch are all from the Best Birds stamp set and its matching Birds and Bloom thinlits.
