Flower challenge, Monochrome

 I made an A6 tent fold card base and added a panel of watercolour card on top. Then I stamped my flower spray in navy and coloured it using my distress ink. I added a quick watery wash of the same colour around my flowers. I stamped my sentiment and used a similar colour wash over that too. A quick edging with my Promarker and I stuck that to my card also. A sprinkling of sequins and job done !

Olive & Tangerine card

Hi there friends, ....phew it ain't half hot here......still 27c late at night. Oh well must make the best of it while it lasts I guess ;)

I have another card to share made for the 'Less is More' challenge once again. This time it's a colour one and 'Olive and Tangerine',.....not a colour combo I have ever tried I think !

I had simply no idea what to make so I just looked through my stamps and dies for inspiration. It's what I always do....sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't lol. ;)

Anyway it wasn't long before I came across this poppies die  and poppies yeeeah. I cut the bottom half with white card then coloured it with an olive  marker. I used some olive type ink and a stencil to add interest behind my image and job done!

I also used these amazing clear crystal gems I recently bought, they are like little pyramids and sooo sparkly....I just love them !!...I added a little orange pearl too for colour ;)

I have been busy lately decorating little peg dolls for our two...yes TWO dolls houses my OH bought very cheaply from our local tip who now have a shop. We had to paint one and do a lot inside one of them but the other was just perfect. Anyway will post pics soon of it all....and my OH has been making more little minature houses too he he ! to follow soon ;)

Sorry for the rambling post...come and see my card ;)

The Flower Challenge #22 Monochrome

Hi there friends, I hope your July is going well so far! Ours in the UK has been very hot so far as was June. What a time to give our large swimming pool away lol !

Today I am back to share another DT card with you again, this month over at 'The Flower Challenge' our theme is 'Monochrome'.

So an easy one I think this time, you can use either black,white,grey or one colour or shades of one colour. If in doubt see our blog for more inspiration, some gorgeous cards made by our amazing team again there.

I went with black and white, a combination I love as it always looks so clean and classy to me. Anyway come and have a quick look and see what you think. I made two cards and was going to share the second one as a reminder card but now I have made yet another...happy days!, so showing you two cards today.

I used the new Hero Arts flower stamps and I can honestly say I just love them will be seeing these again very soon ;).....yes I know...must stop buying new's just not gonna happen though is it let's face it lol !!
