Tonight is week fifty, the very last week of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! I
Next week we start afresh on Wednesday, 3rd May, featuring the five new In colours every Wednesday in May, followed by the four new core colours in June and then the the rest of the core colours throughout the year.
This week we are featuring Soft Suede, one of the retiring Neutral Colours. I will really miss this colour for animals, trees, wood and nature scenes in particular.
My card this week is basically just DSP and fussy cutting, apart from the sentiments on both my cards. I’ve used the retiring (and currently on sale) Happy Forest Friends DSP, one of my favourite DSPs ever!
For both my cards I simply fussy cut images from the Happy Forest Friends DSP and then started layering.
Card one has a lot of white space and features the largest tree from the Happy Forest Friends DSP.
I also added a strip of the Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim, some Brushed Brass Butterflies and a bow of Linen Thread.
Card Two has a DSP layer behind the forest scene that features the gorgeous Soft Suede bear.
This card also features Brushed Brass Butterflies and a bow of Linen Thread.
The “Hello” sentiment on both cards is from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede and die cut using a die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies.
I’ve altered these die shapes after die cutting by either cutting of the tag end (card two) or turning the square end of the tag die around and die cutting it again to square off the tag and make it into a rectangle instead (card one).
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
