We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over Australia and New Zealand, the South Pacific. We love using colour challenges to inspire our creativity, and yours. This week the colours are Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Soft Suede. We have also been joined this week by the very talented Juana Ambida who has made an amazing project for this blog hop. Don't forget to use the 'next' button at the end of the post to proceed along the hop.
For my first card I constructed a base using strips of card in the three colours. With the two shades of brown it is quite a masculine look, and perhaps if I hadn't added a lace doiley, it might have remained masculine. Best Birds co-ordinates with a matching framelits set, and I wanted to die cut some blue blossoms to add to the stamped image. The textured blue stamp you can see behind the bird is another great stamp in Best Birds, a very handy addition to my stash.
It is almost hard to believe that these two cards were made with the same colour palette and stamps.
A piece of DSP (designer series paper/patterned paper) with soft clouds was used in the background. Only a narrow border and the sentiments in Early Espresso this time, gives a much softer card.
A little mix of stamping, water colouring and stamped and diecut images to finish off this card.
