Fresh Colour Bloom...


Just popping in quickly to share a card I made yesterday, combining the Freshly Made sketch with the Colour Q challenge...

And here's what I came up with:

I created the flower using a combination of the Fun Flowers die and the Blossom punch with Island Indigo card and Tempting Turqouise card and dsp, spritzing with water and scrunching then adding a Real Red button in the middle with a bit of Baker's Twine. I added some die-cut leaves in Lucky Limeade card.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Apothecary Art
Ink: Island Indigo
Paper: Twitterpated dsp, Tempting Turquoise dsp, Real Red, Island Indigo, Tempting Turqouise, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Tools: Modern Lable punch, Word Window punch, Blossom punch, scallop trim border punch, Fun Flowers die, Little Leaves sizzlit die
Accessories: Real Red button, Island Indigo Baker's Twine

Thanks for stopping by!
