It’s Ornamental


This week the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary, there is a great colour challenge! I love colour challenges! This week, the challenge is to use the colours you see in this photo:

So, I decided I’d go with something floral as that is what I really was drawn to doing from both the photo and the colours. The base is So Saffron and I made a long panel on the right with Old Olive and Confetti White cardstock. To the bottom I added a little piece of Pink Pirouette which I’d textured with my Sizzix Big Shot and Texture Plates.

Above this panel, I wanted to add a vase of flowers but have no vase stamps so I used my Tree Trimmings stamp set and stamped one on some scrap cardstock in Basic Gray ink. I then cut off the top and bottom and added a little bottom of Basic Gray cardstock. For a little extra bling, I added a flat pearl to the top of the vase.

For the flowers, I used the Boho Blossoms punch and punched out a bunch in Real Red. I then used my Itty Bitty Punch Bundle and made centres out of Pink Pirouette. I watercoloured some So Saffron in behind the vase for a little back light.

To finish off, I added a strip of 5/8″ Real Red grosgrain and a saying which was stamped on Confetti white cardstock in Basic Gray ink and then sponged with Pink Pirouette and layered on Old Olive.

So, head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and join in the fun!
