Sahara Sand Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks Card – AWH Colour Creations

Sahara Sand Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks Card – AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week 41 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Sahara Sand from the Neutrals family.

Sahara Sand is the lightest neutral and such a versatile colour that really works well when paired with any colour.

In particular, I like using Sahara Sand to add shadows to “ground” stamped images into a scene, however today I’m using my Sahara Sand ink pad and a blending brush to showcase the beautiful Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.

I’ve used the bottom middle and right masks for my card today.

This photo below shows how you can achieve an incredible two-tone effect using the same colour, just by colouring one section of the mask and then using another part of the mask to colour again on top of the first layer of colour.

I added masked leaves in Pear Pizzazz using the bottom middle mask – the leaves are just one layer of colour but I used my blending brush to blend in a natural looking variation in depth of colour.

I then used the stitched rectangles to die cut my flower layer, adding a layer of Basic Black underneath. I really love this colour combination of Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black!

The “Just a Note” sentiment is from the Flowering Flowers stamp set, stamped in Versamark ink, white heat embossed and die cut with another stitched rectangle die.

Instead of adding a bow of twine to embellish the card, I decided to use a few of the Classic Matte dots in the centre of the flowers instead.

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