Welcome to week 41 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
Our colour this week is a regal colour: Pumpkin Pie.
This is a colour I rarely use or wear – so it did prove a bit of a challenge until I saw this stunning rug!
I looked at colour combinations within the regal family but decided I wanted a bluer green to go with the orange so I settled on the following colour combination: Pumpkin Pie, Real Real red (both regals) and Coastal Cabana (from the brights family).
Last week I created a background by stamping all over the powder pink cardstock with powder pink ink – such a simple and effective technique – so this week I did a similar technique, this time stamping in black a variety of floral images onto my three different coloured cardstocks.
I then die cut two rectangles in each of the three colours using my rectangle stitched framelits
I like how this technique lets the vibrant colours of the cardstock shine through, whilst also adding a subtle touch of floral elegance.
Because there are no embellishments on this card (and I was so very tempted to add a bow of linen thread!!!!!) I added dimension by mounting all of my rectangles to the card base using adhesive foam strips.
The stamp sets I used were the botanical bliss stamp set and the pressed flowers stamp set, both from the annual catalogue.
