Welcome to week forty-five of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!

Our colour this week is Shaded Spruce, a rich deep blue green from the Regals family. As the Last Chance Products lists for both the The January–April 2024 Mini Catalogue and the 2023–2024 Annual Catalogue have now been released I thought I’d use a stamp set that is soon to be retired but I haven’t inked it up yet!

I’ve watercoloured Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss onto Fluid 100 watercolour paper using my water painter to achieve a much softer shade. Once the watercolour paper was dry I punched out flowers and petals using the Petal Park Builder Punch. This punch will be carrying over to the new catalogue, but the stamp set will be retiring.

I love the texture all these layers in the punch give to the flowers!

I added Black Classic Matte Dots to centre of the flowers and to the rotary dial on the phone to add even more dimension!

Originally, I was planning on making a vertical card, however I changed my mind after I had adhered my layer of embossed Basic White card stock so the Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder is actually the wrong way around, but hopefully no-one will notice, LOL!

Leftover flowers and leaves decorated the inside of the card.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri. I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!
