Sunny Blooms CI#19

Image may contain: outdoor

This colour challenge should produce some interesting creations I'm sure. I've played a little safe and used Birthday Blooms as the news has broken in the Stampin' Up! world that we are getting Stampin' Blends, an alcohol-based marker. We previously had Blendabilities which were withdrawn due to an issue with the quality. It's great that Stampin' Up!® is a company that values its reputation and likes all products to be top quality. Mine seemed to be alright and while I'm awaiting the delivery of a few new ones, I broke them out to colour this lovely large bloom.

A mix of watercolouring with ink and aqua painter and the Daffodil Delight Blends were used here, especially as the Blends green is Old Olive, quite different from Garden Green. Timeless Textures in Smoky Slate was stamped around the edge.

However this flower is coloured, I always love the result.

There is a nice sentiment, and another couple of stamps just perfect for the inside.

Now, lets go over to see what the very talented Rose Packer has made.

  1. So pretty! Your bloom is beautifully coloured Rachel. xx

  2. Every time I see a card made using this set I wonder why I don't own it yet! Your blossom is just beautiful Rachel, and I love the subtleness if the textured stamping border. Beautiful card using these colours.

  3. The combination with timeless textures is just gorgeous. What a beautiful card and beautifully coloured too. Totally wonderful card.

  4. Such a lovely card I really need to use the Birthday Blooms flower more ... it is perfect for this colour combination

  5. So bright, beautiful and full of texture.

  6. Gorgeous card Rachel! I love the mix of floral & grunge! Kelly x
