In the Mood for Colour

Colour makes me happy and I love creating with unexpected colours.

The Altenew class In the Mood for Color was so inspiring.

The products I used on my card are


Warm & Cozy Oval Set - Altenew

Green Fields Oval Set - Altenew - 1

I used the Warm and Cozy inks for the flower, and Green Fields ink for the leaves.  I find it easier to align the floral stamp if I die-cut the cardstock first with Sewn with Love die.

I love Orange flowers, something about its bright colour that gives energy :) I thought it would be fun to add some unexpected colours in the background to give the card more interest. 

I used an old stencil and placed it above the stamped image and sponged some Distress Oxide inks (Tattered Rose, Shaded Lilac and Bundled Sage).  I wasn't sure if the colours will work but I think they turned out pretty good. 

Finally I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne.

Thank you for visiting me. 
Have a great day!
