I've made a few cards today, including another masculine one for this challenge. All good, until I double-checked the colours!!
I used a large amount of the wrong shade of red and forgot about Sahara Sand, using Basic Gray instead.OOOPS!!!
A lovely card never-the-less to add to my samples, and even this one has had a slight adjustment made after I photographed it.
Just one of those days I think.
Secretly, I wanted to be at Melbourne (Vic, Australia) Regionals today, but it is only three weeks since I had surgery and I am not permitted to drive, nor am I really fit enough for that much excitement just yet.
With our new catalogue release less than a month away, I think I am safe to use Fabulous Florets, a very popular stamp returning from the Summer mini. I stamped in black Stazon onto First Edition DSP and cut it out with the Framelits Labels Collection and also used two consecutive sizes to cut the black frame. After stamping two different blossoms from Fabulous Florets onto Real Red, I fussy cut by hand, inked the edges of the petals and curled them this way and that way with a file from the Distressing Kit (retiring this month). After popping a mini glue dot on the back, I positioned the three flowers.
The shaped panel is raised on Stampin Dimensionals and sits on a square of Sahara Sand dry embossed with Perfect Polka Dots. Now, originally I had stamped the small label from Apothecary Art and cut it with the matching die. It has Faux mother-of-pearl sponged with Shimmer Paint and tiny pearls in the centre of the teeny flowers but it photographed so badly (too sombre by far) so I decided to quickly change the tag before the light faded too much to take another photo. I think the one above, with that extra touch of Real Red in the Boho Blossom is the better version - what do you think?
Just a close-up of my fussy cut flowers - this size is fiddly but look quite good.
Now, hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary and see what everyone has made for this color challenge here.
And hopefully, I will soon hear some news/see some photos of todays event,
enjoy the weekend
