Hello Dahlia!


It's time for another ColourQ challenge and this week we've got another fun combo...

I went floral again this week as I've been itching to play some more with the fabulous Regarding Dahlia set and I thought the green & orange combo would work well with some paper piecing...

I have just realised that I misread the colours and used Pumpkin Pie instead of Tangerine Tango - duh! Shows the state of my brain at the moment... I'm so busy I don't know if I'm coming or going half the time lol! Anyway, the flower was stamped three times on some Quatrefoil dsp and embossed with black EP, then I cut out three different layers, coloured with a blender pen and matching ink then layered up with dimensional glue. The leaves are from Joyful Christmas, stamped on Epic Day dsp and also embossed in black EP and cut out.

I created the tag using one of the Chalk Talk framelits and stamped and embossed with black EP using one of the sentiments from Regarding Dahlia. The Wisteria Wonder panel was created using the Top Note die and stamped with one of the Flowering Flourishes using White craft ink.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Regarding Dahlia, Flowering Flourishes
Ink: Versamark, White craft, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Quatrefoil dsp, Epic Day dsp, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver 1/8" ribbon, Black EP
Tools: Top Note die, Chalk Talk framelits
