Sorry about being pretty quiet on my blog recently - I've been so busy getting ready for my big trip to Australia in a couple of weeks with overtime at work and a bunch of Stampin' Up events, I've not had much time to create and blog! Well this afternoon I decided to take some time out to play along with a couple of challenges I had my eye on: the FAB Mojo Monday sketch as well as the gorgeous colours over at Create with Connie & Mary...
My two favourite colours are red and aqua so I knew I had to play with this colour combo! Initially I was thinking of a Christmas card but then I decided to play around with some flower sets and punches...
The flowers were created using a combination of Mixed bunch and Flower Shop stamps and punches, with a Simply Pressed clay flower in the middle of the larger one (dyed with Coastal Cabana ink). I used some Winter Frost dsp for the vertical banner and stamped a flourish on the Coastal Cabana card in the background to add further detail. I pierced around the tag using my piercing tool and template and added a lovely Smoky Slate chevron ribbon bow to finish.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Flower Shop, Oh Hello, Flowering Flourishes
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Versamark
Paper: Winter Frost dsp, Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Simply Pressed Clay, Smoky Slate chevron ribbon
Tools: Blossom punch, Pansy punch, Squares framelits, Piercing tool, mat & template
Thanks for stopping by today!
