Welcome to week twenty two of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop! This week we are showcasing Early Espresso, a a rich dark brown from the neutrals family.
Early Espresso is a wonderful neutral that really makes other colours pop. It’s also fabulous for wood and nature themed cards, like the Christmas card I’ve made for this week’s hop.
The bird and the branch stamp are from the “Perched in a Tree” stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso ink as is the “Let Heaven and Nature Sing ” sentiment. With this sentiment I just had to use the Merry Melody embossing folder too!
The bird and tree trunk were then die cut using the coordinating Aspen Tree Dies.
I coloured the bird and the tree branch using watercolour pencils, then blended the colouring in with a blender pen to make the colours smooth.
The Old Olive cardstock foliage is created using one section of the Christmas Pinecone Dies and the final touches are a bow of linen thread and a few music notes from the Loose Holly Gems & Sequins.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
